i suggest you get a set of coilovers (Skunk2, GC, Teins, etc.) so you can adjust the height you wanted..the only bad thing is the ride might get a lil bumpy..but if you're going for looks, coils will do you good..hope this helps thumbsup

if you want the front and rear to be just slightly above the fender, go with hotchkis. they ride great, add better handling capabilities, and drop the car the perfect amount.

try to stay away from coilover sleeves because once you lower your car too much, your shocks will go bad quick and u'll need new shocks. if you plan on getting aftermarket shocks like koni, TRD, or watevers, coilover sleeves will work fine.

david, go with skunk 2 coil overs, their good high quality, and plus they drop 3.5 inches or more, that should give you the slammed look. The ride will still be good, it will be alittle bumpy, but later on, you can just get the skunk 2 shocks afterwards to go with the coilovers. Its just that the shocks are the expensive part.
