Default Work Euroline fitment question

Hey guys, I'm looking at some Work Euroline's for a great price but I'm wondering if the size and offsets will work with my 94 LS400.

"bolt pattern 143 x 5 18 x 8 + 40 offset 245 40 18 tires front 18x 9 + 40 offset 255 40 18 rear .. 1 inch lip up front, 2 inch lip in the rear"

I'm not looking to slam my car, just some lowering springs/ new shocks. Could this work?

Fit is conservative, not sunk, not flush. You'll have to look through the Tanable spring discussion so that you can see the ride height and if it is ok. For the price of springs, shocks and install, it is more cost effective to buy the basic Megan or BC adjustables.

Like previously said, the fitment will be pretty conservative. If you're looking into springs I'd suggest Megan EZ Street coilover's instead. There a bit more expensive then springs but i'm pretty sure the cheapest coilovers you can get and they're supposedly quite good. Either way they'll have a better ride quality than the springs and allow you to get the exact height you want.

^this. I have work varianza d3s wheels 19x9+9 w/2mm spacer in front and 19x10+13 in rear and IMO they fit perfect. Completely flush. My fenders have been rolled and pulled slightly. Rear quarters have been grinded. The D2 coilovers I've had for 3 years are still as smooth as the day I bought them. Friends say it's the most comfortable "low" ride they have ever been in.

When I was looking into dropping my car. Everybody said to just go with the megan coilovers instead of the spring/strut combo. They were saying that most people ended up going with coilovers in the end anyway. I went with the coilovers, and I'm so glad I did.

lowering springs/new struts - $400-600 est?
pretty good ride
no adjustment if you don't like the height

Megan coilovers - $650 give or take a few
good ride
height and stiffness adjustment
car will handle so much better even on the softest setting
If you ever want to go lower in the future, you have the option
