KYB AGX stuck/shock question...

Well i'll be putting on my 18 inch rims in the spring and i figured i may as well upgrade the suspension at the same time. I was looking at the KYB AGX set. I've heard a lot og good stuff about these. With my 18's i'll be running a 40 side wall also. I dont want to lower the car to much since i have a bodykit, but i am afraid that the 18's will make me look like a 4x4 is that true? Do you think if i get either TRD or Eibach Pro kit will make it about the same height before the 18's? And will the KYB AGX's lower the car any lower with the springs? Also...will TRD or Eibach go with the KYB's? Thanks for your help. If you have any pictures of these set ups go ahead and post them...it will be greatly appreciated.

Also...will i run with a 40 side wall tire? I want the extra rubber to protect the rims instead of the 35 series. Thanks

it's gonna look like an suv if you dont lower it, but TRD/Eibach will work w/those struts.

40 is 1" taller, but it's only gonna raise the car 1/2". So those springs will lower your car.

you might as well get eibach instead of TRD since TRD springs ARE eibach springs. THe 40 is gunna raise you a bit, but the eibach should bring you down to a comfortable height. If you are only lowering 1.5" ish inches you don't have to worry about upgrading your shocks, but if you are interested the KYB AGXs are nice shocks. Only thing is they're adjustibility I feel goes better with adjustable coilovers, so maybe spending a lil less green for tockio shocks that aren't adjustable would be ok too.
