If you want a 1.2" drop go for Eibach springs, for a 1.5" drop get H&R springs, to slam it go for KW V3 coilovers.

You won't need spacers if you get the correct offset when ordering wheels.

As for websites, Google is you friend. :)

Upgrade the wheels, 22s fit great , and the stockers are ugly, IMO. as yorgi said, spacers probably won't be necessary, but he got it flipped H&R only lower 1.2" in front and 1" in back, so it still looks very oem, eibach springs make the car look almost slammed and coil overs of course are big $ but offer the best performance.

A lot of websites selling a lot of different styles of wheels that fit our car, pick your poison.

Hope that helps

Here is what I did last fall:

I am putting on front 20x8.5 20ET on 245/35/20
on the back we have 20x10 20 ET on 285/30/20

Also lowered it with H&R springs.

The offset calculator says:

the front will be 6mm closer to the strut than stock as well has 6mm farther inward from the fender.
the rear will have 15mm less clearance on the strut side and will extend 11mm more to the fender.

My car could use some spacers prob 10mm on the front and 15mm on the back but I just haven't done it yet.

The best way to understand which size spacer you need, is to simply measure from the top outside edge of your tire to the inner lip of you fender. This will give you the best idea on how much size you have to work with, and to decide on how much your wheels need spaced.

Once you know that let us know and I will be able to recommend which size will be the best fit for your application.

Here is a diagram that might help as well.


We have a complete line of spacers available specifically for your vehicle below...
