Progress.....$165.75 SHIPPED to you on ebay & they're an authorized Progress Dealer

They ride VERY nice too

The Eibachs are nice, but the back end sits lower (ass heavy).....people w/Eibachs can & will argue that all day long, but it's true....the car might be level, but the design of the car makes it look like the rear is sitting lower with the Eibachs

Plus the Eibachs are more money. You could buy the Progress ones & have an alignment done for the same price as just the Eibach springs.....your call though.


Your stock springs aren't worth much $$$ though...they'll make a regular ION handle great, but only lower it just a hair. Unless you find someone needing stock springs or something, they're only worth less than $50 though.

i have the perfect pic for the progess, in addition to the ones snoboarddan gave

BAM! awesome action pic, i love it. progress havent given me ANY problems, no sounds, no rough rides, no complaints etc etc! i swear they are awesome, and for anybody else that has them, they can vouch. $165 shipped for the progress, thats not a bad deal

Forum favorites: When darkmanX beat me in a roll, the cover page red Redline is right-hand drive, the GMPONE crew and all the other members I met, the few twincharged RL's out there, and of course my original purchases from Ron9919 which gave me my first mod bug.

What about B&G's? I allways thought they were the best for our cars?

I've never heard of Eibachs causing an issue with the rear end sitting lower. Do you have any references to threads discusing this?

i just bought some B+G's, but i'm not putting them in until spring. (can't get into the driveway when lowered) the threads i read before seemed to say that the B+G's were the closest to stock as far as ride.

wish i could say more from experience to help you out...though i will say i got a great deal on them! $85 shipped.

Q: What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
A: First, you screw. Then, you bolt.

Again....you're kidding, right??? (other one was about the exhaust tip I was selling)

Check ANY thread about the Eibachs and someone always chimes in to say they're ass heavy or the back is saggy

Those are the ones zfactor recommended, but urbanmonkeygod has them on his car & he says they ride really stiff & they really LOWER it

God hates you.

I've been going back and forth between progress and eibachs. From what i've read the eibachs have the best ride comparable to stock. I remember seeing a few photo's of progress springs that looked to sag in the rear. I guess it could have been the angle of the picture or something though.
