I want to know a couple things about lowering the car. first, will lowering springs (eibachs etc) with stock struts be different from stock springs w/ KYB AGX adjustable struts? Can stock springs with the AGX struts lower significantly?

Also if I do lower I would eventually want to get 18's or 20's (nice 18's with some meat on the tire). I would also want to reinstall most the bushings and a couple main supension parts to ensure things stay kosher.

Springs are what lower your car, not struts.

adjustable struts arent height adjustable. You can adjust firmness with them.

thanks, spent all of 2 min on Google to find those. Most of the time was weeding through all the choices to find a good clear one.
