    Default Lowering height recommendations

    I'm looking at lowering my 04 ls. Now if I wanted to go daft I'd get coilovers but I don't want to go that route. I'm planning on getting 18's in the future so I'm after advice for what height to go for. 30 mm or 40 mm all round or a 40/45 mm split? It still needs to be an everyday driver and also used for distance so needs to be comfy.

    Bearing in mind, if its an Sri its already 15mm lower, standard. So round 25mm drop.
