I would recommend going with a larger FHI 20mm rear sway bar or going to a 22mm MRT or Cusco rear bar and a set of MRT, Eibach or STi springs all of them lower it about an inch or less and each have different spring rates (I have listed them hardest to softest) With these drops you don't need to change your struts, unless they are bad or leaking... or you are ready for the Version 6 inverted struts.

I have KYB/AGX's with MRT Springs, and an 18mm sway bar. Also don't forget to put some good tires on. These parts are useless without good grip. I believe Tire Rack still has the Yok AVS Intermediates for $58.00 each. I pull .98 g's(G-tech) on this setup...GQ
