I personally would go either Rims/Springs...The VS body kit will look really out of place w/out rims. And if you get an Invader Hood, it won't look right w/out a kit. Just my .02

I would get 2 and 3 instead of just #1 because the VS kit is frikkin expensive! Although it does look pretty hot thumbsup

I would go with the body kit first...get it out of the way...it looks good without rims. I have stock height and no rims yet.

Get the bodykit. But whatever you do don't get the Hood and springs. A new Hood on a stock car would look a lil whack. I would go with the the body kit and the veilside is HOT!

rims then bodykit, then springs.

you don't want the body kit on without the rims. doesn't look right imo. then once you have the kit, you can decide which drop is best for you.

heres my opinion, get the body kit first? why? this will show that when a body kit is installed you can decide how low your gonna set it up, some kits are low already once installed, my front end is scraping right now on some small hills, like gas station, bumps etc. etc., this is my stock ride height, i have my springs and still waiting on my rims and camber links to come in, i gonna do a one time shot installation, from here you can decide the ride height of your car coz of the kit...
