drop question

I wanna get rid of that ungodly wheel gap that comes on the celica's stock. still extremely indecisive as to which spring i want. i'm thinking a 1.5" drop would be fine, considering i'm having my bomex front and rear and kam side installed as we speak, i don't want to do too much scraping. but i like the hotchkis springs as well how it kinda straightens out the stance. just wondering on what you guys think and what size rims i sould get in the future with whatever drop. thanks

I would reccomend Eibach Proline. Eibach has been making springs for ever, and make some good stuff. Oh yeah, 18's too. You would be alright in the scrapping department.

^^ depends on what size rims you get.

if you get 18 X 7.5 then i'd go with 225/40/18

if you get 17 X 7.5 then i'd go with 225/45/17 thumbsup

those are just my personal opinions..you can hedge a bit in either direction on both the sidewall and width
