I have heard that anything around 23.5" rear and 24.0 front *could* make a candidate for the RSR struts. However, there are three more things you need to address when lowering your car;

1. remove the 10mm thick washer/spacer between the top of the strut and the strut housing.

2. cut down the rubber bump stops on both the front and rears. This will keep the shocks from bottoming out too soon and loading things up.

3. address the bump-steer with either steering rack spacers (which Ryan mentioned), or go with a bump steer kit.

I need to get my car back down a bit.....I decided to start removing stuff AFTER my corner balance.....duh..
