well you provided so much information about the offset of your rims, wheel size, drop desired, and what shocks you wanna use that I am going to go ahead and say "yes".

lol^^^^....im only guessing but you probably got "baller" rims so id suggest eibach pro-kit with just a 1" drop to be simple for you and call it a day

This thread should be in "Stop, Drop, and Roll".

Read around that section, there are some great guides that will explain everything. If you read enough, you'll know exactly what you need.

I agree, eibach. I have the H&R springs with 18'' rims and their 1.4/1.5'' drop F/R is cutting it real close. You should be okay with eibachs. Plus those eibachs will not stress your factory shocks too much, since its only 1''.

Enjoy your new wheels! :)

I agree, save money down the road and just buy coillovers. They are worth it. Stance GR+ in my opinion. Good luck...

check the back of the wheels... usually on the spokes there's an offset stamp/print. it should say "+42" or whatever the case may be and it also states the width. once you know that then we can help you from there.

mods need to move this thread ;)
