Will this work

Hey I was wanting to lower my car I was going to
Get H&R sports springs and Tokico shocks and struts , the only concern I have is that my back tires will rub cause I have 315 's and also will I need to get sub frame connectors , this one dude told me if I don't get subframe connectors when i lower it my frame will collapse cause the frame is 3 parts is this true ??

What size rims you have and how much of a drop is it? Never heard of a frame collapsing

Umm your frame wont collapse cause you lower the car... Takes alot to break a frame or even bend it...
