I'm really considering picking up a set of 19" Axis Matrix wheels, and I'd like to lower it at the same time. The car is my everyday driver, doesnt get tracked at all, and in all honesty, I'm just going for looks. Can you guys suggest some brands of springs, and how low to go without sacrificing the ride quality horribly.

Thanks!

Some people have complained about the ride quality with 19's. You could always go with a basic spring setup like the Eibachs.

Sounds good. I'm waiting on a friend of mine to get me a price. I think the eibachs he has drop about 1.5" Does that sound like it should sit nicely?

That should sit well with the 19's. You won't have much of a gap if at all.
