    If you want to drop the car strictly for handling purposes, you really don't need to go all that low. About an inch and a half is all you need. It's not going to have the wheel well sitting right on top of the tire with no gap, but it will look good, and it holds your suspension arms (and drive axles) horizontal at rest, which is what you want for the best handling.

    What's your budget? You can spend anywhere from $500 to $87549278 on a suspension setup. What kind of racing are you building the suspension for? Yes, it matters.

    I would run a 195/50/15 tire on your LS rims. You preserve your stock gearing (somewhat), and you can get some really nice tires for not too much money with that size.
