    Default lowering novice plz help

    hi

    iam currently got this red sri 2.2, and i have some 19" wheels on there way as i speak.
    when i put them on ill post a new pic, i want to lower as well but not sure how much or what springs to get. do i need to change the shocks? and is there anything else i need to do?
    i dont want it on its arse and rattleing my teeth out, just low enough so it looks right without a harsh ride.

    any recomendations or experiances you have had?

    I Have Just put KONI 40mm drop springs on my elite , kept the original shocks , very happy with the amount of drop it gave me, only a couple of inches clearance on the front valance , keeps grounding out in multi car parks and speed bumps , not practical but it looks the part.
