Default Suspension setup for 19's

Hey
What is the best way to set up a car's suspension that is on 19's? Personally, I think 19's look killer on a TA, BUT the "stance" has to be right on to achieve this.

Any advise (and pics )are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

How much more weight does the 19s add in the rear? Usually more unsprung weight, you want more compression damping

My car is a DD that will never see a road course, but maybe a 1/4 strip once or twice a year.
I am really leaning towards the Strano/Koni spring shock combo, but with 19's will that close up the wheel gap and lower the car enough to keep it from being too high?

There is a black TA with 19" Forgestars on this site with a great setup, I'll just PM him.

Thanks guys

I have 19`s and Koni 4/3 shocks , still on stock springs.
The wheels fill out the wheel wells perfectly ,my cars stance isnt like a 4X4 either , could use some lowering but its OK for now , I was actually about to do the hose mod in the rear today , and maybe use the lower perch on the Koni`s in the front , I think that would be a good DD setup , however I will lower soon as I want no wheel gap at all.

And my car is a DD , always has been , always will be , just so you know ..

How are we supposed to know what you consider too high? That's your opinion. I suggest searching threads that post strano spring stance pics.
