hi everyone. my name is ryan and i am 16. im a new member and i have a question for you guys. i have a 94 black altima gxe. the car is in really good condition for being almost 9 years old except for the front bumper, which has rock chips and cracks in it. besides that it is a nice looking car. so anyway, i am thinkin about gettin a new front bumper, one of the body kit ones (air dam). i really like the omega/invader/whatever its called nowadays, http://www.grounddynamics.com/merchant/mainpage.htm
but someone said it was really hard to install.....what do u guys think? also, about that stillen lip thing....if u order that does it come with the bumper too? cuz i saw it on nopi for like 230-250 and if that was fir just the lip it would be outrageous....well any help on this would be appreciated......thanks!

What happened between those two posts? :D
There is a new iBi bumper coming out in less than a month that will look like this below, but the original one would look better if you are not getting a full kit.

yeah ibi would be your best bet if you want an easy install from what i have heard. and altima8 right above me here sells them and he is a great guy and i bet it would be alot nicer to deal with him rather then some shitty company like import trends.

you can drop the car 4" and you'll still have clearence i believe

because eibach's give 2" and he still has plenty of space

I just went outside to measure...
I'm EXACTLY 5 1/4" of the ground at the lowest point in the front, on an Intrax 1 3/4" drop. Add back the height of the drop and you get exactly 7" of ground clearance on stock suspension.

That is of course considering that the Intrax is exactly 1.75" as they say it is....I have no way of actually checking that number! I think it's pretty accurate, but if anything I'm LOWER than 1.75" due to my screwed up struts. So on stock setup I can pretty well guarantee that ground clearance is somewhere between 7" and 7.5". What's stock bumper clearance?

The bumper alone by the way costs $300+ship, which I believe is less than the Erebuni one...and don't forget, the Erebuni goes over the stock bumper as a lip, the iBi replaces the stock bumper completely!
