KYB RS Pro is a high low coilovers. Which means when you lower it, it compresses the spring which then also reduces the suspension travel. Besides, when i surveyed for this KYB for my persona (my plan is front half finger and rear about 1 finger clearance), they suggested not to go for kyb as there will be tyre rub due to KYB soft nature. If you plan to lower your car at about 70mm, i will say try save and go for the ones with body shift

Funny, I have one set hi/lo and to lower I need to reduce the compression of the springs so that the weight of the car settles on it. Compressing the springs actually pushes the car up so it goes higher

Ke aku kena tipu by the shop so that I will buy HWL instead of KYB. Because that's what he told and then he suggest the hwl
