I am working on the same thing right now. It depends on if you want a body kit or not. You shouldn't need camber links if your drop is no more than 2". But after you drop it, you need to get it aligned. When you say nice drop, what does that mean. My advice is to get a measuring tape and measure how much of a drop you want. Hope this kinda points you in the right direction, and welcome to the boards.

hmmm...thats a good idea to use the measuring tape to figure out what route i need to take. im not getting a kit now...but when i do get one, i really like the wing west lip kit. i guess a new question would be what springs will give me a drop without needing a camber?

As long as you don't go lower than 2 inches, you shouldn't need camber. The wings west, is just like a lip right? You could go as low as you want, I would suggest Eibach sportlines. I like low rides.

Ask for some pics from people with drops and of kits that you have. It will give you a better idea.

you will need shocks. You should get shocks with any drop. Not sure about the links, you would have to find someone with that drop and see what they say. I don't kmnow anyone who does, sorry.

I have been looking around in houston for a while for a club. Go check out Clubcelica.com. They have regional forums and check the Southwest forum. Most of the poeple that post in there are in the houston area. Ask around in there, I'm sure someone can help you out more than me.

thanks for the help spiderman...do you know where and how much i can get the camber links, and also how much for some good shocks?..since i might as well get that stuff, i might be looking at a 1.5-2" drop.

Here is a website to start with. You can use it for comparisons and whatnot. I have not done a lot of shopping around for suspension parts, so I do not know the cheapest place, but this will give you a good starting point.
