That being said, you really took it to heart and you answered my question above and beyond. Thank you! That's some good info, I was kind of curious as to how crazy it would be to try to prevent too much lowering. Really appreciated.
What do you think of the FRPP kit (leaving the slight lowering out of mine)?
Thanks for the recommendation on the Eibach's sway bar kit also, I was looking at that so I could get both front and rear together. Good to know they're recommended.

I'll give that a look. Do you recommend any places to order the kit from? As well, what does this have over the FRPP kit in your opinion?
I've never installed a front sway bar, so I can only guess, but if it's doable, I'll wrestle the sucker in but thanks for the headsup. Any tips for install?
