Sounds good! I'll be watching the progress (; I would say 18s or 19s are good choices. 18s wont look too small if you do it right. nGooo is tucking 18s. As for suspension, your uca will most likely hit on the wheel well (If you havent already noticed). Most people cut a hole for it to travel through, avoiding the problem. You can get rca's, or rca spacers, and this will also allow you to lower the front more as you wanted to do so. I would change out the tie rods, and defiantly the lower ball joints if you havent already done so. As I stated before, rolling your fenders, removing the splash guards is also necessary. You can get camber kits and bushings if you choose, too. You'll have a little time to do some research, and get the parts you need, just do it right the first time! And good luck!

Those Morro's sure look way better with the car on bags.. Throw some spacers on those and roll that til you nail down the perfect wheel and fitment. What's the width/offset on the current wheels?

Using spacers on your current wheels can help you visualize the total offset and fender clearance so when you order new wheels you have a good idea of how aggressive you want to go on offset since you don't want to pull.

^ Like that idea. Get a rough estimate of the fitment you want, do some searching on the forum and use an offset calculator if youd like (just type in offset calculator in google). Buy some spacers, ebay spacers work, but I recommend buying decent studs if you buy the bolt on spacers and plan on keeping them awhile. Then you can go from there and figure out what you want! It's cheap and will look ALOT better until you pick out the wheels you want.

Im just worried if i buy a bunch of suspension parts, i might buy something i dont need or the wrong part. Since i am bagged and not sitting static.

I'm looking and searching and i really cant figure out what rim size/ offset/ lip that i want or need. When buying a rim what do you consider first? I'm confused on this offset thing. All i want is a 4 to 5 inch lip in rear and a 3 to a 3.5 inch lip on the fronts with minimum fender mods. I'm willing to roll fronts and shave or roll rears. I don;t want to pull or radius cut anything I want it to look stock as possible with out ruining the body, The fronts i'm not to worried about since i can always buy new fenders. I'm on air, so i would like to ride low and tuck. Also what is all involved in with a low or high disc when it comes to wheel offset? any advice or threads i may have missed would be appreciated.
