Second guessing...

Idk, when I ordered my new wheels and tires, it never dawned on me I would have basically the same outer diameter as the stock wheels and tires. I went from 19x8.5 wheels and 245/45-19 tires to 20x9.5 wheels and 275/35-20 tires. I ordered the FR P springs. They are supposed to give a 1" drop. Idk if that will get rid of the great gap fender gap.

I think a 1" drop is good enough, gives a nice stanced look and keeps daily driving capabilities without having too many clearance issues

I agree with midnightblue, you don't have to worry about a thing. An inch drop would be nice and you don't have to worry about clearance issues, talk to some tuner guys about their slammed cars hahaa

I've got the sportlines and only the tallest speed bumps cause any worry but go slow enough and I never have problems even with my chin spoiler

1.7 front drop 2.4" back drop and I don't bottom out or really have clearance issues anywhere. Not like I thought I would. Now if I had a body kit maybe.

Ehh few places I would scrape I'd scrape with a 1.7" or a 2.4" drop. So not sure I agree with you. I think the 2.4" rear drop is the perfect stance. Too each their own.
