I have Vizage JP Ground Effect kit and 18''(/225/40/18)wheels.
How many inches I should drop?
Do I need camber kit for both front and rear?
Why not buying a coilover kit? I thought it is better...

I would say 1.75 inch or something.
Coilovers really sucks. Its like driving with out springs.
I dont think you need camber kit.

1.75?? are you sure? my front kit is pretty low already..
Coilover are adjustable right? My friend said I will have a more smooth ride with coilover. I don't want to have a bummpy ride

dont get coilover unless its those once-peice design. The others suck. But the downside is $$$

i got teins s techs in mines. they give a 1.4 drop. I thought the TRD's 1 inch was a little too little lol. i dont think it woulod make a noticeable difference. Im glad i got the teins instead. plus they are cheaper than the TRD plus very good in quality

also, for the drop, the more you go, youre gonna need a camber kit. Mines is 1.4 and im right on the edge of needing one in the rear. But im ok with -1. The factory is -.75 anything lower than 1.5, youre gonna need a kit
