I would say, since you're not all too knowledgeable about suspension set-ups, got with a 1" drop. Any lower and you'd need some new shocks. Your stock ones will/should work with the 1" drop, but they will wear faster, but should still last for a while.

So basically, Buy TRD springs and then either get kyb gr2 struts now to save on install cost or get them later when you can afford them.

Dont recommend those to someone who doesnt know what their doing lol slap The sportlines look damn good but the ride will be very harsh since the drop is so low. You might also have to replace even your new shocks after a while with the sportlines.

Hotchkis are good, 1-2/5" drop up front and 2" @ the back. I have had them for 2 years now with the stock shocks and the ride is still good! thumbsup

go Tein, its a 1.4 drop all around or about 1.5 when the springs settle, it goes perfect with 17's, not too low not too high thumbsup
