Drop
I am thinking about dropping my car. I just put 17's on it and it is way to high would this kit be the best way to go??

That's a pretty low drop and will require some extra stuff. Such as, camber links and shocks. I'd go with Tein or Hotchkis if I were you.

I actually have Hotchkis springs sitting im my room that I can't put on till I get my shocks rolleyes

i am thinking of going with 17 wheels also.
How low does tein drops ? front and back?

Do i have to change the shocks?

I only have 25k miles in my car

Which would look better, eibach pro kit, or tein?

Teins drop it 1.4 all around. Im still stuck on the eibach pro-kit vs the tein stech too.

Can you post a picture of your car with the drop, is more easy to decide when you see how it looks in another car.

Thanks!

Thanks for the picture and the link to other pictures.

The way i see it, is that tein does't drop that much but it looks better than the TRD springs, I haven't seen a picture of the eibach pro kit yet, so i can't comment on those.

I like how the exel dl46 rims looks but i don't know how much the 17' rims weight.

So if i have the TRD bodykit, and i install the 17 wheels,what tire size should i go with???
