Moved it to the showroom for comments on the looks, now you've got "build thread" here you can add to.

If you don't get comments on the shocks/struts, post that question in the Brakes, suspension & Chassis section.

Nice drop ! Low enough to eliminate wheel gap but still drive able.

I used h&r spacers. 15mm up front 20mm out back.. the stance is perfect but on stock dampers the tires rub on every dip and lot enterance. So im desperately ISO of stiffer dampers. If no luck ill have to swap the eibach springs for an entire adjustable coil over set. 1K easy... without install fees.

Are your front or rear tires rubbing? Or both? I'm wondering if I can get away with just spacers on my car with Pro-Kit springs but I want to make sure I don't rub at all because it's my daily driver.

Time to roll and maybe pull the fenders a bit. Also look at modifying your fender liners, this all depends where exactly and what you are rubbing at. You can get some blue painters tape on the fenders/liners and then see where its rubbed off to find out for sure.

Running a little more negative camber can also help with the rubbing.


The shocks will depend on your budget, top of the line adjustable will be Koni yellows...nothing but great reviews on those

Well I have the more aggressive eibach sport line springs . They ride a bit Lower than yours. If you wanna go flush like this Id recommend you install the spacers that I bought 15mm and 20mm. If your still riding on stock dampers , prepare for A WHOLE lot of tire rub. Haha

Oh and to anwser your other question ALL 4 wheels rub. Yep..
