I went with Eibachs, the sportlines to be exact. I love them and have nothing negative to say about them. Body roll is no problem for me. If you would like a pic of the drop, let me know.

EDIT: Reading > me Sportlines are only available for the cobalt. Sorry. The Pro Kit does look very good though as well. Alpha had them on his old Ion. IIRC, the body roll also reduced greatly.

For Sale: GM Performance Camshafts

i have B&G and if i hadn't snagged them at a ridiculous price, i would have went with progress. without progress, then pedders. possibly canuck motorsports.

B&Gs are the softest. i prefer the way the car feels with progress.

Eibach will give you that big drop in the rear. the bottom edge of the doors will sit level, so with the tapered sideskirts, it can give the illusion that the car's rear is sitting low.

progress will be more even--without the saggy rear look, B&G will be slightly raked forward compared to the progress.

Q: What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?

i have! B&Gs slightly lower in front and slightly higher in back compared to progress.

there's many pictures floating around. look for a "pics of your lowered cars" thread. you can clearly see lots of people with eibachs that look saggy in the rear. of course, like i said, it depends which line on the car you're looking at. if you're looking at the bottom edge of the door, it's level, but if you're looking at the bottom edge of the skirt, it's not.

of course, they could have changed their springs so new ones don't sit like that.
