you would probably be good with some df210s, unless you have super stretched tires. maybe tein s techs, i think theyre a little stiffer. if you dont wanna go that low id go with some TRDs or nf210s

tein or eibach. eibach tends to have less drop and a better quality ride.

My son's Box has the TRDs....here is how it looks so you have an idea how the drop actually looks. These images were taken within a day of having them installed so the springs have settled a bit more than these pics show. It is sitting on 19" wheels and 235/35ZR19 tires:

I went with the Tanabe NF's and I do wish it was a little lower, but I am so glad I don't scrape at all! I'm running 18's on it.

NF210s, best springs with not a ton of drop. DFs will prob be too low for you.

I have DF's and love them. The ride quality is very respectable. My problem with most of the other springs is that the drop is not noticeable enough. If I am going to shell out the money I want people to be able to see it!
