I am satisfied with the lowering springs. But it really only lowered my sonic to about a Toyota Corolla stock height. These are not the springs for you if you want a slammed to the earth looking effect. I have Chevy Cruze 17" rims on my sonic sedan. I am not sure if the original 15's would have made it look lower. But all said, I am happy with the finished product. Make sure you order the upgraded sway bar links when you do this job. You will thank yourself later. For sure, my cornering is much more in control and I don't feel like I am 4x4 status now. Worth every penny. But as I said, if you want to be visually obviously lower than the standard stock import car out there, then go with the second option ZZ Performance offers.
