i'm not sure but the rx7 front is pretty low though.. if your getting it towed make sure you request a flatbed. i'll take a picture of my car when i test fit & mofify the rx7 front bumper to my car in a couple of days..

the rx7 kit is the 3rd lowest but has really bad fitment, first is blitz urethane and second is blitz fiberglass. the vs kit is not low at all.

if your worried about the street i would go VS since it's not that much lower than stock, and you can always lower it with some TRD springs later if you dont want a big drop.

don't get rx7 front, you will spend a lot just getting it to fit
