Default Illumina/Ebay/QA1 Setup

I have Tokico Illuminas with FM springs right now. I want an adjustable ride height setup. Take a look please.

These are for Altimas but they're cheap (43 shipped) and I've seen them mentioned on here. They'll fit right?

I want to run 7" springs front and back. Most likely 450/300.

I've got everything else covered. If anyone has a straight setup I'll trade a semi busted megasquirt and stuff. Thanks.

Measure the inside diameter of the sleeves when you get them. I have a friend who needs to go this route

Most likely going a different route. I bought some sleeves from a member on here for super cheap. Now I'm looking for Bilsteins! A friend of mine can machine the perch for better ride height adjustability. Bilstein/Ebay/QA1.

7" springs will be too tall for the illuminas. You car will have a rake like whoa.
