whats up dude. well the sportline well set you lower to the ground then the pro kit will. so either way you will need a camber kit. also i highly recommend new performance shocks. not now but in the near future because when you lower youe car your going to slowly kill your OEM shocks. so get a nice koni or eibach makes some :o) thats about it dude and welcome to the site :o)

You can buy the complete eibach kits that come with springs and shocks. If you get the sportlines, you will need the chamber kit, or at least I did. I dont know about the pro kit.

Vendors that support the site like McNews and New Edge Performance carry everthing you will need as well. What size tires and wheels do you want to use? This will help in the "pro" versus "sportline" debate. With the pro system you have a little more flexibility to play with tire,wheel, and offsets combinations. It reduces the tire/ fender gap nicely without resulting in a slammed appearance and maintains adequate clearance and suspension travel.
