    Post pics as soon as you can. I just had the same idea pop into my head yesterday. Was wanting to put 18's or 20's on it too. Wanting to see how all this is going to pan out.

    my buddy bought a set of those. one of the rear springs was taller than the stock springs. check them all before tearing your car down.

    I had these springs installed before I sold my car; Much better ride, and looks much better with the 1.5 drop. Congrats.
