help with suspension
Hey guys...

I want to get 18's with 35 or 40 series tires...and i want to lower it 1.25"-1.4" or so so i still have some clearance left...what do i need?

If i just get some tein s tech sprigs or something similar...(1.4") do i need new shocks (will my stockers wear out?) do i need a camber kit too? I know very little about suspension so please help guys! Thanks!

You won't need a camber kit for s-techs. Your stock shocks should last a little while on s-techs. Depending on how many miles you have on your car you may want to consider getting new shocks anyway (KYB AGX shocks thumbsup ). you don't have to get new shocks unless you go lower than 1.5" (I think). Besides, it shouldn't cost much extra if you install springs & shocks at the same time.
