Yes, it is a mild drop.
Specs say 35MM.. They say new springs need some days to settle properly.
They are definitely more stiff than the OEM springs.
Combined with 40 profile tires it makes it a bit more sporty to drive.
Not that the Leaf will ever be a sports car. For that I have an Audi ;)

Instalment is really easy.
Took me about 2 hours on the front (can be done in 1 hour) and 30 min on the rear.

Very cool, Lowered landing and alloy wheels is not bad. I like this kind of sport. But it is ideal for roads and do not feel comfortable on the roads with poor quality coating.

Yeah, it's lowered on air bags/coilovers hybrid suspension. All custom fabrication. So the comfort ride is not sacrificed with the advantages of the coilover system set to either stiff or soft depending on your driving style or preference while the air bags determine ride height, so ride quality is not compromised. As for the 19" wheels, range depletion is roughly by negative 5%. The cons of running larger set wheels. Nonetheless this set are one of my favorite VIP wheels.

only 5%. Damn your lucky.

When I was running my Equips it was easily 15%. Your stance is sick man. Someone snapped a pic of your car in the parking lot at the last wekfest show and I was jockin the tuck.

Unfortunately this is the lowest the tien coilovers went. I wish I could get it down further without air, but the thought of acuair has crossed my mind.

got rid of the tien and went to BC and the stance was a little lower, but not where I would want it.

Can you get it low enough so that if you run over a gum wrapper it'll rip the fenders off?

I imagine the one who posted that might be saying; "That hurt man."
