shocks and struts for a 2nd gen

i am currently running FFRp kit but i really wanna go lower in the front... the wheel cap in the front is terrible

what are my options besides going for coilovers?

get an omnikit?


was thinking about going to hr springs or eibach springs cuz they are a little lower then the Ffrp and i know you can run other springs on the kit

i found these...http://www.ebay.com/itm/KYB-4-STRUTS...134c12&vxp=mtr

You should like it I did if not low enough for you but I think it will be I cut two deaf coils off the rear to make it level front and rear. I only did that after the spring settled in
