And also would i need to replace my shocks with the sprotline kit. Also if i needed a pair of some rear camber links? (SOME PEOPLE HAVE TOLD ME YES AND OTHER NO)

are you going to be using the stock 15" wheels or are you raising it with 17 or 18s ?

You don't need a rear camber if you don't drop it more than 2" You're going to scratch whether you want to or not, it's a fact of life. And yeah, if you can, replace your stock shocks while you're at it.

I have VS-1 Kit and Eibach Sportlines...And 15" stock rims (Weel radius about the same as 17" with low profile tires):D Yes it's low but looks good.
Distance between the front fender and the front weel 1.5 fingers grin and rear 1 finger. (stock 4 f and 5r )
I do have an alighment kit on the front (Eibach $26) but i did not change my camber links at the rear.I went to alighment shop and they did the alighment for me...and it's not perfect but not far from it.So i do not think it's a big deal to have a rear camber links .(of cose it's better to have it)
So i can run over (But slow) every bump in the area w/o any problem.
And you have 18" rims so your car going to be even higer than my car. So... do not worry.
