Yeah, id rather go for about an 8 inch drop, but thats just me.
Most body kits wont hang down much lower than your frame if at all, so any mild 1.25-1.5" drop would be ok if youre not looking to slow down as much for speed bumps.

My eibach's dropped about 1.75 after a full settle. Was quite a bit less when they were spanking new. I'm really low, I wanted a body kit, but I'll scrape it too much, so that is out now, cuz there is no way i'm giving up the springs.
