Lowering and Wheels

i want to lower my car, but i am torn between the Pro-Kit and Sportlines. the wheels i am torn between 17's or 18's. IF ANYBODY out there has any pics of 17's w/ Pro's or Sports, and 18's w/ Pro's and Sports please post them up so i can see what they will look like and if their are any rubbing, clearance or alignment problems with wither setup. i drive a '06 sedan in LG, so i would like to see a sedan in order to get the tru feeling of how everything looks together. Thanks for any help in advance.

I have 18's with Pro kit




I was going to get sportlines but alot of people here said I might run into rubbing probs with 18's. You will be happy with the pro kit I love it.

i have the FRPP for 06-07 and i love it, but i may sell it cuz i need the cashola, but its a nice kit, comes with everything, rides nice handles good, looks good, never had a chance to put anything bigger then 16's on it tho so dunno about rubbing issues, but i think its more to do with the offset of the wheels you get

Ive got the same suspension and I love it, its only rubbed in the front over really quick dips when I'm going faster than I should. I can count the amount of times on one hand, so it really isnt an issue. 1.5" dropish and this is with 17x7 st200's (49 offset I think) with 215/45/17's. Id give Mike a call for the hook up on the struts and springs, cant beat them for the price!
