Lower 2", Stock 06 rims/tires?

I have an 04 LX. Has a set of stock 06 16" rims with tires. Would like to put on a set of 2" drop springs. Will it clear the fender wells....will it rub?

No way. It won't rub. That'll work just fine.

I can guarantee that you won't rub. I'm dropped on the Eibach Sportlines and have the stock 16's and have no issues at all with rubbing.

I have heard that stock struts will wear out faster due to the higher tension of performance / drop springs. If you have to pay for labor your better off upgrading now and only paying for labor once.

If you have the tools and the ability to do it yourself leave them on and replace them when needed.

If you want the performance and not only looks put in the struts!
