RosewoodCB7 is cool... so far.
Those are the same coilovers I would order. How many inches did you drop it? how does it handle now with them on vs stock?

The front is lowered a little over 2" and rear is 1.6"...the handling compared to stock is like night and day. Handles like a cat on carpet! Can't wait for the sway bars and strut bars..I really love driving it with the Tein's...definitely worth it.

Very nice! Do you think 2 inches all around would be perfect? I was thinking 3 inches all around, do you think that is too low? I can't wait to mod mine. Is your steering super light? mine is like a feather...... I think it might be messed up, not sure? I only drove mine so I don't know what other CB7's feel like.

Thumbs up Clean

Just a reminder to check your tires
I heard the tein coilovers didn't go that low, but that looks slammed

I can tell you that with the height I have mine at, I don't experience any clearance or rubbing issues, and I have 205/65/15 tires in rear, front are 60. The previous owner had bigger tires in rear for some reason and I'm going to ho to a lower sidewall soon...I can't say you wont have issues at 3" though. My steering is light but kind of off because I have a power steering issue lol.

Sorry, I don't know how to quote multiple quotes in a single post yet....[QUOTED=DCB7;3263859]Just a reminder to check your tires
I heard the tein coilovers didn't go that low, but that looks slammed[/quote]

Lol I was worried it didn't look low enough..yeah I consistently check clearance, pressure, did alignment right away, etc...once I get a smaller sidewall it should sit even lower, so at that point I will have to adjust things accordingly.

Here's a little before and after of the wheel gap...

Before:


After:


And a little something just came in the mail...(not the bow, the plate)



My PowerStop brake kit will be arriving this weekend. I only got it because my front brakes are worn and needed to be replaced soon anyway, so why not?

Ya. I agree on the lowering but not the slamming. Your car looks so nice and OEM thats all. Just my preference. I run Tein Super Streets.

Lol it's funny because others have said similar things and I was worried that it wasn't low enough. I don't like cars super slammed or anything, but mine just doesn't seem super low to me. I dunno... I can adjust the height if need be

Shit ya, do what you want of course. Don't forget that when you adjust the height you need to get an alignment if you are going to stay that way.
