I'm looking to get one. I know people always say drop first, but I always thought how can you get the drop before the rims if you don't know how much of a drop you will need?

Funny thing is that I found myself scraping on some driveways and dips near school on STOCK height and wheels, with no lip. I'm afraid as to what will happen if I do end up getting a drop/front lip.

what do you mean 'how much of a drop you will need'? 6ga's need all the droppage they can get! well there aren't many options for dropping out there.. unless you go coilovers. with springs it's basically 1.5" or 2" drop and after that you might as well go coilovers.

I've heard mixed things about the ride quality and effects of coilovers. Also, I'm not that familiar with suspension to know all the differences between full coilovers, sleeves, springs, springs+shocks/struts, etc.

Also, I've seen race springs for sale here that advertise a 2.25" drop.

Looks good man! Pace yourself on the drop - figure out how low you want to go first.
