Did you buy those on EBay? I have never heard of anyone who had much luck with EBay coilover kits. I think you are supposed to grind the spring perches off off your struts and clamp those on. I wouldn't do it.

if you are looking for 2 inch drop Skunk 2 wont get you quite there... a friend of mine put them on his 03 and it was like 1 and a half inch drop...

correct me if I am wrong but would'nt a 2 inch drop tuck the wheels and cause rubbing without new fenders?

a good coilover kit will cost you about 1k. else just go w/ something like the Eibach Pro or Roush kit. it will give you 2 inches drop. you shouldn't have any rubbing tires if ur running on a stock rims.

The FRPP kit form mike at Hilbish is a good kit. Says 1.5" but it settles a little more.

im rocking ground controls and it pretty much looks like that. of course gc are made by eibach so its more of a name brand than those ebay ones. i say u should just get some eibach pro springs and ur good.
