A kit won't help much more than a pig lip and skirts.

If you actually want to be low, you'll have to nut up and drop the entire car down. 18s with 225/45 truck tires probably aren't helping.

yea I know about the tires, I would like to find some starion rims as that alone would drop it.. I could probably drop it another inch or so.. how much about would you say that adding the front lip lowers it? if im at 7" now after the lip would it sit at like 6"?.. I appreciate the help. ill post a pic up tonight maybe it will help..

Inch maybe. Sounds about right.

Get shorter OD tires, tuck the fender harnesses, and drop the car way down.

I have about:
4" from ground to frame rails
2" from ground to headers

I should be able to drop the front maybe 1" max and the back a little more.. give it a sort of squat..

You should be able to go four more inches lower, frame rails on the ground.

yea im not gona fuck up my headers just to get lower haha not worth 900$ that's why I wanted to know how much lower the side skirts+ lip would make it look vs a full body kit
The car is sitting at factory spec alignment so I don't wear tires funny..
Ide much rather install overfenders front/rear but not Shure what size to buy.. the rims are (18x9.5 -4)(225/45/18) all around. I was thinking 20/30 or 30/50 for overfenders.. 10mm spacers up front to clear the Z32 calipers.

What size wheels are these? I'm looking for a setup like this but with more offset and overfenders.
