Coil for sure. I have D2 coil over with my 20" and work perfect for me. The spring will break your shock sooner or later. So, save some money and buy yourself the coil over. So if you do not like the set up the first time you can download or upload more to the shape that are you want. It is my best recommendation for you. Good look

I want coils but if i did get them i would want to tuck tire... My front wheels stick out more then the fender, would i need to get fender work done? Or would i my best bet be to just get springs to close the gap.

What are your wheel sizes, offsets and tire sizes? That'll be what determines how much work, if any, is necessary to get your desired look. Without any of that, it'll really just come down to trial and error. Just as a heads up, the wheels on a 2GS camber in naturally as you lower it.

How do i check the offsets? All i know is the rims are 20x10 in the front and 20x11.5 in the rear. The tires up front are 245/35/20

Usually, most manufacturers either have them stamped or cast into the wheel, or on a sticker on the inner spoke or barrel. Another option is to go on the company's website (or a vender who sells them) and find it there.
