Alright dude, if I remember right your wheels were pretty flush so getting them to tuck, you would probably have to run some stretch to get them in the arches.

As for how you get it down depends on your cash flow.
I was skint so I just brought me some sleeves to get it slammed, but if you've got the cash I would get some coilovers.

I had some 17" lenso's on a EG and dropped it on ebays, they tucked in the arches easily.

if you got some cash to play with get some coilovers, there some doing the rounds atm that are meant to be good and go way low (im sure someone will post up what they are)

if your on a budget get ebays on, then when u got the money get some uprated shocks to go with them

et means offset, as in how much the wheels sit in or out the arch

get yourself some spare LCA bolts ready (because the oem ones have a tendancy to break) then pm me and we'l sort something out.

im in tipton btw
