without pulling off the wheel, you can look inside the top are of your rear inner fender towards where the splash guard wraps around the strut. Look super carefully to see if you see a coil spring or not. Remeber to look super, super carefully before you end up ordering the wrong kit.

Yes there is a coil spring, but the drop kit for the self leveling also has coil overs for the back thats why i got confused.

Which drop kit are you going with? Both Eibach and H&R only comes with the front springs for vehicles which have self leveling. Since you say that you see a rear coil spring, your vehicle does not have self leveling.

If your going with true coilovers on a self leveling vehicle, you have 2 options. A. use just the front coilver and adjust the rear down or B. Use both the front and rear coilovers and get rid of the self leveling.

Is your car dropped? Which brand does everyone recommend? I have 3piece 22x11 305/25/22 -22x9 265/25/22 i dont want anything to rub.

Rubbing will ultimately come down to the offsets of your wheels and the particular tires you are running.

As for lowering methods, it comes down to how you want it to sit, and how much money your willing spend. If your looking just to get rid of some of the tire to fender gap, most people just replace the springs. And yes, my car is dropped.

easiest way is to open your trunk and check the fuse box on the right hand side cubby. Check and see if you have a fuse for the self leveling rear suspension installed!

If your stil unsure, look under the spare tire. If you have the self leveling rear suspension you will have a dome there. And under the dome is the air compressor/tank for the suspension. You will see wires running to it to control it.
