I'm looking to lower my car and have searched the forums to death, but I cannot quite find an answer to this...

I'm pretty big about 6'3 300lbs looking to drop the car... Torn between sportlines and Pro Kit's, I want the drop of the sportlines, but am concerned with scraping and don't know if i should go with the Pro Kits

Anyone have any input?

Thanks for the reply. Will a 1.4 inch drop give my FA5 a noticible more agressive stance or would I have to go lower for that. My goal is to not have the rear wheels camber out, for it to look low but not so low that I have to worry about scrapping and to get rid of some wheel well gap.

sure np :) trust me you will have a more agressive stance, its a perfect drop not too low, just low enough to look good w/o scrapping :D

check this thread you'll get a better idea.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, that thread was really useful, plenty of good pics to help me make my decision. Only question left is, will a 1.4 inch drop with sportlines require a camber kit?

I have sportlines and i don't have a camber kit, I would say if its a 2" or more than you need a camber kit, otherwise you don't.

Thanks. I appreciate the feedback. R-18 I noticed you have 18" tenzo's. How does that look with a 1.4" drop? Any pics you wouldn't mind posting?
