Yeah you should go with either Ground Control Coilovers or Eibach Sportline Springs (1.9 inch drop). I have 215/40/17 and when i put those on there was a huge gap, but the Sportlines took care of it. With the coilover set up it is adjustable so that might be better if you are going to get a body kit.

2" is way too low, read on sentra.net about suspension, its better if you dont lower it past 1.5" (eibach prokits). and if you get a body kit w/ a 2" drop youll have a lot of trouble w/ bumps and bottoming out.

With a 2.0 drop and even a 1.5 drop and a body kit you will be way low. make sure and try to find a poly-eurathane(sp?) kit and not fiberglass.

HR makes a decent set of coils.right in line with Eibachs as far as ride and quality, they are a 1.4 drop
