buy mach 1 tokicos along with what ever spring you want (H&R or c spring) else you may be very very sorry you tried to go a little cheaper later on.

Doesnt matter. Depends on what drop you want. I have Eibach Pro Kit.... C-Springs wont give you much of a drop. 1"-1.25"

1.5'' is as low as I dare to go... I've got some pretty big exhaust under my car that I'd prefer didn't get ripped out on some speed bump... which kit should I look at for 1.25'' to 1.5''? Mach 1 struts and which springs?

Steeda springs seem like a good 1.25"-1.5" drop

i got C springs due to i wanted to be able to align my car with out cc plats, now that i have cc plates i want H&R 1.5 drop springs. if you are really low you should get the cc plates from mm to raise the strut up a bit for more travel. if you only go 1.2 inches its no a problem... the mach 1's are just a great strut/shock dont pay more than 200 for them to your door.

which will make the impact of the ''lowered'' car look? That'd be the Mach 1 shocks right?

The shocks and struts won't make the car look/sit any lower...they are just there to absorb movement in the suspension. the springs will change how it sits.

If you get springs its only a matter of time before your stock shocks go to the crapper. Mine are shot. My car drives like crap. ASk Nate or Whitestang99 it sucks.

I would get the springs first and then as soon as you can buy shocks and struts
