    i know your looking for 2gs but I have megan coilovers on my 1g and they are not that bad. I also run 18s with 215/35 tires so with the combo I sit low but not too low and have little wheel gap and looks good.The ride is a little rougj but I need to play around with adjusting the coilovers and the tires being that small of a sidewall doesnt help either. Not sure how much I am lowered as I bought the car at this height but check out pics in my profile if you want to see what Im running with

    I had eibach pro-kit with Tokico Illuminas. I loved it, wheel gap gone, and handled awesome, would of been better if it wasn't for the crappy tires I had.

    For the money the Koni Yellow Struts with Eibach Springs are a economical option with great adjustability and dampening.

    I drove a car with these before and they absorb bumps and dips well.

    I have eibach springs with Tokico Illuminas. I believe 1.75-2in drop rides nice and smooth but my bumper does scrape sometimes pulling in my driveway.

    Megan EZ street coil overs. I set it for a 1.5" drop, but it has clearly settled a bit since than. It's too low for Wisconsin roads. I need to roll the edge under the rear wheel well because it's cutting my expensive tires. Small bumps will cause the tires to run the top of the wheel well. I will probably raise it about .25 inches this winter.

    i Agree with the Rims looking like they are Tucked Under the Car, This is Completely off topic But what should i upgrade the Brakes to. I am Starting with Braking and Suspension First. I always do this First because if you enjoy corners more than Straight-aways, you can have the Most Fun out of your car without having to build your Engine Immediately.

    i know the Stock Rims will leave little Room under the car, and this will lead to me Scraping but ya gotta work with what ya got while on a budget Right? :D

    Love the Drop ya got goin there. Nice and Slammed! but the *Rotas? Enkei's?* you have in the Last photos you posted they look Awesome..... what are they?

    Those are Enkei RPF1's.

    It would be best to upgrade the master cylinder first (with a stock AWD master). That would make it worthwhile to install the larger 2-pot brakes on the front. You could upgrade the rears at the same time and maintain stock braking bias, but with the larger front brakes alone you would notice a huge improvement in overall braking.

    The wheels I have just mounted on are Square G6's... 18x9.5 +12... I'm hoping I can get the fenders pulled to today. Need to fit those tires under the fender a little bit better LOL.
