Quick question about rim/strut issue

alright. i have a bad front strut so im gonna be replacing these but at the same time im going to be ordering a set of 18x8.5 rims. i also have a sensi kit, so if i get a set of tokico blues (or the kyb for price issues) will my car sit about the same, or is this going to cause me to have to get a set of the 5 way adjustables? anyone have this size tire on with a regular set of struts? thanks for any and all input.

jeremy

sry, but i posted this in a hurry, it may have to be moved to the suspension forum if no one here would know for sure.

uh, well what size tires are you going with along with what kind of spring?

and "5 way adjustables" illumina's don't adjust ride height, the adjust the frimness or softness of your ride
you going to need to get a coilover setup inorder to adjust your ride height

i have the factory stuff under my car and am running 18s with a c-west, Has a bit of a wheel gap, but when your bumper only sits 7 in off the ground, you got to decide what you hate more, wheel gap or busted front bumpers. (still layed mine down two days ago)

ill have a choice to go with either:

225/40/18
235/40/18
245/40/18

and for some reason i cant remember what the first number stood for. what tire would show the least wheel gap you guys think? knowing about those adjustables now im probably gonna just go with the kyb struts and see how the car sits. with the stock springs it should be sitting decent, like you said the kit gets any lower were gonna be replacing bumpers every month. lol. thanks for all the input guys. and just help me out on that tire size. which one should i mount? the 225s are the cheapest.

Go enter your stock wheel and tire size.
Then you can enter any wheel sie you want and calculate how small of a tire you need. You should find this usefull.Jarrod
