    Thanks. Do you know about how much drop should I be able to get F/R?

    Bilstein is not the way you want to go if ride height matters. The LOWEST they’ll go is maybe 1-1.5”. I believe the range of adjustment is listed on bilsteins website for both the b14’s and the b16’s.

    That's the range I'm looking for. I greatly appreciate your comments and input.

    I can’t help with the coilovers, but you might want a stiffer rear sway bar than the CS. Even on the stiffest setting it’s too soft for me. I should have bought another JBR.

    Unfortunately the JBR RSBs are sold out, so it's not an option. CS seems to be the next best option.

    The white line bar has been doing me well. Can lift a tire no problem lol. It’s stiff.

    for a DD (which is sort of what mine is...just don't drive it very often) on the streets, the B14 + whiteline RSB has felt terriffic. that being said, i've only put 140'ish miles on them thus far. not sure if they are truly broken in yet. but i can't imagine these being stiffer. it already feels rock solid just coming off my driveway bump. i wasn't willing to spend $500 for the small % i might get out of it, if i'd even know what i was missing.

    Bilsteins B14s and EOM strut mounts with bearings on order. Working through the RSB decision now. JBR RSB is a 3-4 month wait. Still checking on availability on a CS RSB. The Whiteline RSB is available on Amazon for $200, so it's an option too/may be the best option. You all seem to really like the Whiteline RSB and I think are running it in the soft setting. I have new OEM endlinks that I'll put on when I do the RSB. It will be a little while before I get around to putting it all on.
