Rims/Lowering - How much?

I'm getting 18" rims with 215/35/18 tires. I'm not sure how much I'm going to want to lower the car...I just don't want any rub. I was looking at buying the TRD lowering springs/4 shocks but it looks like those lowering springs only allow me to lower it 1", so if I can lower it more without rub, I probably want to buy Eibach Pro springs, right? Or do any of you know of somewhere I can buy TRD lowering springs that'll lower more than 1"?

Thanks in advance for the help smile

The TRD springs are a just slightly lower drop than the eibach pro kit. If you meant the sportlines they make it extremely low so make sure you want that.

your not going to rub with the 215/35/18 series tires.. even 1.5" drop won't hurt.

so do you recommend the eibach springs and maybe koni shocks? 1.5" drop all around or should I do it different for the front and back?
