Lowering with 17"s

Currently I have 17"s on my ride, and planning to get the Eibach Pro-Kit for a little bit of lowering. Is this gonna work out okay? Or are the 17"s gonna get in the way?

how much does the eibach lower it, im going with hitchkis, its 1 3/8ths in front and 1 7/8th in back, more than likely the eiback prokit will work, because 17's with lowprofile tires isnt that much bigger than stock

was....5speed with i/h/e
15.41 @ 89.30mph 2.282 60'

is....04 srt4 stock
13.936 100.15mph 2.177 60'

the eibach pro kit drops your car 1.2" in the front and 1.1" in the back.

that said, you will have no problems with 17" rims with this drop. thumbsup

I had 17"s with the Pro Kit and it wasn't low enough.
Then I went with a 2" drop and 225/45/17 tires and it's fine. There is no rubbing at all, you should be ok thumbsup
