lowering question

ok, i know i've already made a thread about the coilovers but that fell through. i just got my wheels on and now i wanna lower it but, it doesnt seem like i have too much room to do it. my wheels are 17x7.5 with 215/50/17's on it. any suggestions will be great. thanks!

I've got 18 - 225 - 45. I am only using Eibachs pro-kit. The height is perfect, it got rid of that damn gap after I put my wheels on but it's not too low that I bottom out evrywhere. They are not too stiff eitehr, almost feels like stock on stock shocks... I plan oon getting KYB gr2's for a stiffer ride. The prokit lowered my car about 1.5 - 1.75 inches.

if you want a nice stance stock just go with a eibach sportline its for the 4 cyl but it should drop you about to almost 2 inches but not quite and they will ride smoother and i had 17" in the beginning so im telling you from experience. dont worry about room you wil be fine.

DON'T GET NEUSPEED SPORTLINES..... NO NO NO.... they are horrible, and i have a bunch of performance shops that will back me up on this comment. Neuspeed sportlines definatly sag 99.9% of the time over time. Eibach prokits have been proven to never sag over time.
