Not sure what you are asking, if you are asking if you need to lower your car to put a body kit on, the answer is no, they are two completely different modifications to the car.

true, lowering is completely different than a body kit, but body kit with lowering looks much much better imo. Makes it look like a car, not an off-road machine. kinda OT, but has anyone ever seen a newer style mustang with a body kit and no lowered suspension? looks like a 4X4 imo.

on our cars yes..i wouldnt get a kit unless you have wheels first..depending on the size you could pull off with not getting springs but the springs get rid of that nasty wheel gap and makes it look so much better..a stock celica with just a drop looks great to me

Well, everything of my celica is from stock, the rim is 16" and would it looks bad with a new body kit unless I change it to a bigger rim?

Well preferably you want at least 17" rims with a body kit, or a drop of 1-2" in the suspension either way would make the kit look way better. On my car its dropped a bit, stock rims, and body kit, looks good imo, but could always use some nice gunmetal w/ polished lip rims :drool:

since you said 16 im assuming you have the GTS..and no..the stock 16's are too small for a body kit..17's will fill it up much better...i reccomend getting a drop first..then if you really like the stock rims, which i think look good in some occasions, get a kit..but i would stay away from aggressive kits like velslide because it wont look right..

not entirely true..

Im regretting i lowered my car before my kit..

It all depends on the body kit you are looking at.. for instance, TRD Action Pkg, Tsunami are both kits that would look 10x better lowered

BUT

Buddyclub2, kaminari, and i believe C-One ver2 kits are excessively low when the car has been lowered

With my bc2 front on with Sportline springs and 18" wheels im MAYBE 2" off the ground in front.
