inch and a 1/4 in the front an 1 inch in the rear.

and the only shocks that can handle those spring's are Koni adjustables. you'll blow your svt ones with in probably a week because of the spring rate.

What about the KYB AGX adjustable dampers? the H&R Race springs should work with those.

I doubt this would be a good combo. H&R Race springs have very serious (high) spring rates. While the AGX's are good they were not designed for the spring rates of the H&R's and would be seriously stressed.

upgrade tires from P195 to P205

I own a '05 ZX3-S. It's getting close to tire time. I have 15" aftermarket rims on car. Could I jump up a size to P205-15's. Tires are same price. Would this offer any advantages? Thanks
