    i have a 97 vert with 17x9 steeda ultra lite 2 rims on 245/45 tires with stock suspension and springs off a 2000 gt. i wanna put on fr500 rims, 17x9 in front and 18x10 in back with 255/40 in front and 295?/35? in back. i also wanna put on eibach suspension (springs, shocks, struts, sway bars, bumpsteer kit.. did i miss anything?) and steeda caster/camber plates. the car has dual exhaust. what springs would be better, pro kit or sportline? car is daily driver and doesnt see many speed bumps. will this all fit together? thanks for any help.

    Get H & R springs. Eibach springs are notorious for sagging really early.

    I would suggest Bilstein shocks/struts, but if your pocket book isn't that deep, Koni and Tokico seem to be treating people well. Check out Steeda for bumpsteer and balljoints. Get 4 bolt C/C plates if you can.

    It'll go together all right. Personally, I would keep the ultra lite II rims.

    My tires are 285/35 all around and it only looks close in the front. People have run 315 fatties out back.

    :nice:
