The full set of springs came from Tire Rack:

Note they have a set of lowering and lifting springs.

And Krohn, I highly recommend getting the strut tower brace as soon as possible. It really does make ALL the difference in the world how it drives. :yahoo:

Did you install the H&R springs in both the front and back, or just the front?

I'm doing the same soon (except withe CM springs), but am wondering if I should just do the front to level, and leave the back OEM.

Also getting 245/75R16 tire size (which I think will fit in back without a lift).

Those tires will fit, may rub a little. But with the spring install, do the front and the back :thumb:
