need to move anything? [confused] i think before you can decide on how low you want to go you need to figure out what the purpose of the car is going to be. for instance, do you plan to auto-x or road race is? or do up just want that slammed look? something to also consider is the fact that the lower you go the rougher the ride quality is going to be. after you have figured out some of those thing i would do some research on here on reviews and whatnot about different set-ups and chose one you think you would like. i wouldnt suggest just going with lowering springs, if you are going to lower it, go ahead and do it right the first time and do springs, struts and camber kits.

I suggest the eibach Sportlines for you, Its the lowest you can get and still have it drivable. The kit for the springs and dampers is about 500. from www.newedgeperformance.com


DO NOT cheap out on the suspension, you will be sorry everytime you drive it if you do.

What wheels are you planning on getting? The offset of the wheels and what tire size you run is going to determine how much you can drop the car before you rub.

I personally like the Votgland springs for the 2" drop on KYG ABX externally adjustable shocks and struts good deal at $400.00 +$50.00 shipping on ebay

you should be ok with a 215/40/r17 as long as the wheel has a +42 offset however if you run a 215/40/r17 with a +40 offset you should be ok as long as you roll your fenders
