Default Skunk2 Suspension ?? HELP !!

I have been referred to purchase a set of skunk 2 coil overs for the look i want for my car. Its a 99 integra se and i just purchased 18" wheels for it and tires which are 215.35.18. I wish to have the front somewhat lower than the back. I also don't know a lot about suspension and quality however I just don't want to regret buying a new set then finding out that its really bumpy, rough or very tough. I don't want it to mess with ride comfort a great deal if possible.. I don't know, can somebody help with some suggestions on what has worked for you and things to stay away from. thanks

i dont know how much you can really lower it with 18's and still have a "good" ride

Things to stay away from? 18 inch wheels and 35 series tires is one. you lose ride quality with that alone. you can't lower your car on 18's expect it to ride to ride even close stock.

even if you dont, once you lower your car it changes everything.

18" wheels? Buy some 16's. Its an integra, not an escalade.

Come on, im sure it can be lowered, ive seen other integras and civics with 18" lowered but it still didn't have the look of what a 17" offers.
maybe this is a bad idea, i don't know

18" rims on an Integra is always a bad idea, theres no way you can drop it, and lose most of the ride comfort, as was said earlier, you lose ride quality alone w/ the 18's

I don't understand the reason why it can't be lowered. I have almost 2 inches of space from the top of tire to the wheel well.
