Its hard to say. They kill you on charges for shipping the wheels, I would only really want to sell my rims and keep the tires. I guess it would have to depend on how much shipping would be.

I used the H&R kit, super smooth ride still, installed them and drove it over 200 miles the next day for Easter. Handles awesome on interstate going 85 mph

H&R Gives you the most comfort with the lease amount of low. (1.5" all around... I think)
Eibach Pro Kit is a good in between, Lower then H&R (1.5" front, 1.7" rear) But still pretty comfortable.
Canuck Motor Sports give you the maximum amount of low but the ride is a bit stiffer. It still isn't that bad though. (1.7" all around)

I got a SSC Spring kit and (pretty much the same as canucks) and it got me about 2" lower than stock. The ride is stiffer but it's worth it. And it isn't really that much worse anyways.

Here's a good front/side shot of my car showing the height. Keep in mind it is sitting on stock 17" wheels and the tires have the same sidewall height as stock too. 225/50r17



Also how do you like your lip? What's nice is after you lower your car if you hit the lip on something, no damage will happen, it'll just move. And if something does happen it's easy to replace!

I love the lip lol, for $10 you can't go wrong!! I know I like the wheels to , just a thought of switching it up. I don't know about spacers though, I hate the idea hat I would have to cut my threads to be able to make spacers work.. I have been told that by a few people now to put the spacers on
