    finally something i can be a real help with. sooo how low do you want to go and what size rim/tires do you want? i am sitting at a 3"/5" drop right now but i am going to go to a 4.5"/6" soon. i have the DJM drop kit which includes upper control arms and hardware to flip the ball joints to give a 3" drop in front, and i have 4" DJM steel blocks in the rear and i removed the middle leaf and flipped the overload leaf on the springs for a 5" rear drop. i have lots of pics in the gallery so you can see how mine sits. let me know what you want and i can help you from there.

    get this kit then:

    http://www.stylinconcepts.com/parts.aspx/partfamilyid/550

    it is what i have right now and will give you a 3"/4" drop. it will look good with your 16's and even better with 18's. there is a 3"/3" kit too if you dont want the back dropped 4". you'll want new shocks too, i'd suggest some kyb gas-a-justs for a smooth yet firm ride and kyb monomax's (what im running) for a stiff ride better suited for handeling. also look in to getting a rear swy bar. i have the one made by helwig and it makes a huge improvement in handeling.
