hey man, I just pm'ed u back. with a 9.5 inch rim, depending on your offset, you should be fine. Light fender rolling MIGHT be required, always depending on your offset.

yes u can lower it depends what offset you are running. and you might need to roll your fenders. If you want a major tucking you would need camber kit and run negative camber. It all depends how low you really want to go.

If you are using coilovers, then dropping her a little more would be no problem. If you rub, you can always raise her up.

Do you know your wheel offset? and what kind of tires are you using?

^He's running an et +45 and the tires are 265/35/18, not sure what kind. But +45 is a pretty conservative offset no? I think it's pretty much stock if I'm not mistaking.
