Posting in case someone is considering this combo. :)

Wheel setup is 18x8 with 35 offset. Tires are 225/40/18. Car is FWD GLX V6 30v

I got the 60/40 FK Springs from ECS and the Koni STRs from Tire Rack.
ECS has a better deal on the Konis, but they're not going to have them in stock until December.

As far as fitment, the front will rub, but you can roll the inside lip of the fenders to fix this.
The ride is not too harsh but handling is a lot better than stock.

For the price, it's much better than getting Racelands or Rokkors, and the Konis also have a lifetime warranty.

Wheels look great. The stance looks great too and sounds like it handles well. That's a +35 offset with no spacers at all?

The front is rubbing on the top of the wheel when going over bumps? Or is it rubbing on turns? What is your alignment specs?

Thanks, BKKVW.
The wheels are +35 offset and I'm not using spacers at all.

The tires will rub on turns and bumps; However, rolling the inside of the fender fixed the issues.
