Haha. imdopenbed you must have $$$ cause entire kits don't run cheap. Hehem... what color is your WW kit? If it's white I might be interested. Probably sideskirts and rear lip... you have pictures???

Thats the unfortunet side effect of having a nice looking kit, and a nice looking drop :(

Another alternative is to put bigger rims and tires on your car, that way it raises yyour car a little bit. And another thing progress and suspension techniques have the lowest drop out of all the lowering springs next to Intrax 3 in drop. So maybe bigger rims and tires might just be the solution.

What rims are all you guys riding on with these kits. If you are riding on the stockies, you are gonna scrape. It is inevitable. I have a wings west side and rear skirts and a vis front bumper with a 3" drop, but, and this is a big BUT, I have 18" wheels which raises up your car. These small wheels aren't gonna cut it when it comes to the kits. I scrape, yeah, hell yeah, I am like 4" off the floor with the front bumper, but if you watch what your doing and be careful it can most likely be avoided. Before I go, just one thing, don't get rid of your kits, just get some dope a$$ big wheels!!!

With a drop like that, if you add bigger wheels/tires, you might risk rubbing. Also you have to get your speedometer recalibrated as the larger wheels throw off the ratio slightly. Just raise it up a bit. Would you have a little more wheel gap, or have your kit get f'ed up? New springs $300... new wheels... $1000... new kit $800... yo' mama... $priceless.
Look at it that way. new springs would be the cheapest and best route to take. an yo' mama will be happy.

I have 18's on my teg and it is lowered 3". Used to scrape till I folded the lip, now its all good. Now no one take this the wrong way, but I dont get why you all are putting these nice body kits on your cars and then leaving the stock wheels on it. To me that is almost Ricing, I don't mean to put anyone down but either you go for looks, speed or both, but that's just my $.02 and that's all I got to say about that!!!

how do you guys figure bigger wheels will help? with bigger wheels you need smaller tires or the wheel will hit the fender well if they have a big drop like you say. I have a 2 inch drop and a WW type W kit. i can switch back and forth from my stock gsr rims and my 17's.

You just have to learn how to drive again. take bumps at angles and drive real slow. Learn where dips and pot holes are in the road and go around them. Its tough at first but worth it.
