Anyone ever heard of a lip kit for a 1999 front facia? I was lookin at my Z and it needs to be lowered but honestly i think that the front bumper is not quite as low as the side skirts. A lip kit would really make a dramatic diffrence. I love the way the JDM facia looks but would like to see some possibilities or mods other memebers may have come across.

Thanks

You can always switch to the Escort Kit Front Fascia, but that would mean going from plastic to fiberglass. However it is almost identical to the J-Spec front fascia EXCEPT that it has a very noticeable bottom lip, which is what you are looking for.

you took the words right out of my mouth. but reid, i have thought about a CF lip/diffuser thing on the bottom of the jspec and have always thought it would be big time awesome. but i don't think i've ever seen it. but it sounds familiar... may there is one Neutral

im going to play with the idea a little more. Dont want to risk the fiberglass deal but will see what i can find about the diffuser info. Dont think it will happen honestly, maybe a drop will make it look the way i want, i love it the way it is, just seems so high. Has anyone heard any good news about the Tein lowering springs? inexpensive, name brand, and they have a 1.5 in the front and a i think .9 in the rear

I heard that Tein lowering springs were really good. I just picked up the Eibach pro-kit, and I think that is 1" drop on all four wheels. I still have the OEM TT front fascia that sits a little lower than the JSPEC, so I should be happy with that drop. People are selling tein's like crazy these days though, but they are only $165 new. Is your car lowered now?

Thanks for the info man. My car is so old im pretty sure it has spring sag some what. I do not know if the old owner before it was modified ever changed the struts so i was looking into some inexpensive for now struts and some inexpensive for now springs. There is a guy on TT.net selling a set of Teins for 160 shipped in the box brand new, thought it was a good start if i can find some struts. I also am looking for a camber kit for the front any suggestions?

camber bolts are a PATA. i'd have to save for the adjustable uppers and do it right.
