seriously. ohboy

youre either going to have to be careful about where you drive and get used to having a beast of a bumper on the front of your car or sell it and get a new front. the only waythat you could lift the front up some more would be to buy some big (19") wheels, install them, and leave the stock suspension alone. that would probably give you some lift, but your car would look like a freakin moster truck thumbsdown

larger wheels will make a HUGE difference...

It was almost impossible for me to drive around on stock suspension with 15" and the R2 front bumper... I then got 17" and life changed... I could drive again grin but not every place frown

... because of my stupidity, I was forced to replace my wheels & suspension earlier this year... I went with TRD shocks/struts and springs... also upgraded to 18" wheels with a 30 profile tire

ALOT MORE room to drive now thumbsup my front is actually higher NOW, than it was before rice go with larger wheels/tires... your worries will be less and you will be able to sleep at night wave

BEFORE... w/ 17" and stock suspension

AFTER... w/ 18" and TRD drop thumbsup

with 18's and the right drop, I think you would be fine with the blitz front.
