Thank you.
I'd figure out= How are your roads? How much $? How low do you want to go? As far as wheels/ tires go thats up to you= look thru the showroom section. I'd do the suspension 1st then the wheel/tires. A popular combo is using SVT wheels= a few varies styles. 17x7 using a 215-45x17 tire. There are more suspension kits for the '00-'05 models, so you'll need to get Massive's omni kit to get one of thou's kits. The springs & struts don;t interchange between the earlier & later models. And what ever you do= DON'T DO SPRNG'S ONLY. You need the proper dampers to go w. the lowering springs. Read the stickies at the top of this section= loads & loads of info to read.
