Height...

Ok well I'm in a dilema. I want to put my sportline springs and AGX struts on with the VS1 kit, but I wanna know about how much ground clearance I'll have.

If it helps I have 18's with 225/40/18 wheels.

My car is gunna be 10x faster than yours...haha... I'm gunna buy like 10
of those speedchips! I figure if 1 gets me 20hp then 10 will get me 200hp!

Dude IMO if you have 18" rims i wouldnt drop it that much. The sportslines are too much. I have 18's and got the eibach pro kit. (dropped about 1.3") and everything looks good.

not sure about the vs1, but I have the sportline and AGX setup and ground clearance is fine with TRD. the real issue for you is fender well clearance with your 18's. 1.8" might be too much...

I get my kicks on EC.

No, Blackcel had 18's with the Sportline springs and he was fine.

that's good to know. I have 15's with the sportline and agx and driveways are not a problem. I should mention though I don't have any underbody plastics. on the semi steep driveways I just go in at an angle just to be safe. you can still scrape with the sportlines, but you shouldn't if you're careful, and that won't take long. plus you've got 18's so you have more clearance than I do.

that scissorjack that comes with your car is really low and should fit under anything.
