ADVISE ME PLEASE!

okie dokie.

I'm rollin' on 17"s, drop springs=1.8" and a TRD kit. I WANT A BLITZ FRONT BADLY...but don't wanna botch my whole front end(scrapin',yada,yada)

Should I take out JUST my front springs? Or would that just look too ghey? Or sacrifice and go w/ ALL stock springs instead. Dag nabbit, SHOULDA went for them coilovers instead...

Guess what your car would not be drivable with 17" with 1.8" drop if you get Blitz. Isaac has Blitz (stored in garage somewhere) he has 17" rims with no drop and he scrapes, thats the reason he took it off and put his other front bumpers on.
Eugi C did not believe me and baught same kit guess what the bumper dented his fenders becuase he hit a dip or something going 5m.p.h. What he is considering is getting a set of fenders to replace the dented ones, then put on another front bumper instead of the blitz.
What I would suggest you do is get 18" rims with 225/40/18 tires and change to stock springs. You still have to take driveways and dips at an angle, but you will be less likely to scrape. But I will still predict you will scrape either right when you drive out of the paintshop or within a week of installation.

Nate,

Stick with TRD, bro. BC and R2 are fiberglass. Most of the BC that I've seen, do not fit right. The R2 is just as low. Isaac has the R2 sitting in his garage. The only other front that I would go with is Kaminari. It is polyurethane and it goes with the rest of the TRD kit. I believe the Trial would work also. But, kits like Trial are designed to go together. Mix and match may look weird. Same goes with the Veilside.
