Well, I was pretty much set on getting Tein Basic Coil Overs and call it a day but when I went to a local one stop shop custom shop here in Vegas they told me the right way to lower a vehicle is with new springs and struts.
He quoted me Eibach springs all around and KYB struts all around for roughly $1200 installed..
I can get Tein Basic Coil Overs on ebay and a SPC rear camper kit for about $1100 and $150 to $200 for install which comes to $1300 its $100 dollar difference between the two so its not really the money I just want it to be right!!!! I've talked to some you on this forum regarding this subject but I'm still not 100% clear on the best way to go?

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. Should I get wheels and tires first then lower or lower first then wheels and tires???

First off kyb's are oem replacement and are not approved for lowering. It sounds like they are trying to make some money off you and eibach springs do lower it that much. The best way to lower a car is with coil overs hands down. I have ksports and like em either those or tien basics would be a nice addition and make your e look great. It is not hard to do your self it just takes time if you have never done it before I would go coil overs and diy it. As for the tires you may want to wait till you are done lowering. I usually wait a month after lowering to let the suspension settle before doing an alignment. If the alignment is bad enough it could chew through a new set of tire pretty quick.
