    +whatever for the pro-kit. I had the Sportline with 5-way adjustable Tokiko shocks/struts....changed them out for the Pro-kit and revalved Bilsteins...MUCH better. 275's on the Sportline will just about remove your inner fender liner in the front over time and you HAVE to get the rear quarters rolled or you will eat your tire's edges.

    Gonna have to disagree with this... I have the Sportlines with Strano-tuned Bilstiens and run 275s all the way around. I've never had the issues mentioned above. Now I wouldn't reccommend the Sportlines for a daily-driver, but for a weekend car that has had some weight-removal done, they are fine...

    A couple of things to consider though: your Bilseins are a better shock than my old Tokikos; I also have a pretty sizeable offset with the American Racing Rebel rims which puts the tire about flush with the quarter panel/fender. On my three-piece Enkei racing wheels, the same 275 tire does not rub because of a smaller offset.

    Yeah, you really, really need to make sure you have enough clearance for your drop, so that the wheels have clearance. I have the Prokit and my (rear) tires/wheels combo are 18x10.5 wheels and 285/35 Nittos. I have to roll the rear fenders in a bit for clearance.

    I have Pro kit and revalved Bilteins; I am looking into long tubes and the ones I will probably settle on are PaceSetters because I hear (on here) that they have the most ground clearance.

    I'm with him. Ive ridden in an fbody with bilsteins, and it was great. I have kyb's all around and i must say...the ride was just as good. The only difference is i spent 150 bucks on my shocks instead of 350. I'll take the knock-offs, thanks
