What to Do, What to Do???

So, right now I am in the market for lowering options. I've been on 20s for two years, and still love my wheels. But, I don't like the gap at all. I was thinking of doing lowering springs (found a good deal) and a new set of struts (also a good deal). But then, thanks to some advice, I found a kick ass deal on a coilover kit. I'm worried as all hell about rubbing though, and am also planning on getting a lip kit or some kind of other bodykit, so I don't want to sit too low all the time. I know the coilovers are fully adjustable and that the struts should be, but still, I want to go with the safest and most efficient option right off the bat.

Any advice??? And don't say "take the 20s off" cause it aint happening. lawlz

Hmm. I'm only looking at about $100 or less difference, picking the coilovers over the springs/struts anyways.

Although, I've never rolled fenders before. I didn't even think about that.

take the 20s off. but since you wont do that, definately roll the fenders. a lot of import guys do it and it looks really good if done properly

Yea I would def say a more technical challenge, to do it right, and make it look nice requires serious abilities.
