I'm a little under 4" down.. a lot of people exaggerate, we had Jeremy down a measured 4" even and he was tucking quite a lot of tire.. I'm tucking a little over 1/2" of tire

HOLY CRAP!, that is INSANE! So do you think going about 2.5" front and 2" rear would look pretty good with 17" rims?

2.5" front, 2" rear will look good with 17s. Smaller rims require more drastic measures, though.

I put myself down for 3-4... I'm not quite 4" anymore, but I'm well past 3".

Alright, thanks...I am thinking about getting H&R coilovers, i've heard they only lower 2" in the front...I wanna go lower than that though. Is that all the lower the regular H&R coilovers go? 2" in the front and 3" in the rear?

Mine is lowered somewhere between 3.5-4"'s in the front and about 2.75-3" in the back (but the back will be going lower soon).
