so im thinking of doing my suspension next, since i have the $ rite now or soon it will all go to waste somehow lol.

anyways. I am planning on getting wald lip, so im worried the the H&R's will drop me too low...however, im also wanting a STURDY, stable feeling when im driving..

so Illuminas are one of my options b/c they are adjustable, & H&Rs b/c i know ppl selling them used...so how is this combo for a wald front lip?

will it give u the feeling that my car is "riding on rails"? also, can i get some pictures, if anyone has any? thanks!

yeah bro, that 2" drop is going to wreak havoc on a wald lip. Wald is one of the lowest lips out there, so you will either be fixing, or replacing it a lot (unless you only drive on flat surfaces).

stick with the illuminas, but get something a little more conservative if you are going with the wald lip.

maybe tein s-tech's.

would the 2" HR combo and Tokico Shocks mean scrapping on the stock front bumper? will there be wheel rubbage with the stock 17"s? and how much finger gap does that leave on this set up?

I also have the H&R/ tokico combo on right now, and its not the 2" drop everyone is saying, i have never scrapped my front bumper and i have a cf lip on it too;) I'm on stockies for the daily drive and 18s staggered for weekend meets, never had a prob with this setup! i do canyon runs whenever i can and it does hold its own.
