has anyone used them on a redline or ion before. I was going to go with sprint but I've read that the B+G springs are better made

Oh i was gonna reply to this earlier and say that so far the only ones that fit are the sprints.. We have tried eibachs and they didnt work, but you will have to tell us how the b+g's work. How much of a drop is it??

I was looking at the Einbach springs they list as fitting the RL. Another 1.5" drop would make for a REALLY low ride. Have any of you guys run into problems and is how is the ride with the new springs?

i was looking at the eibach springs to but they don't fit without modifications. i've had the springs on for almost a week and no problems.

Any pictures and does anyone know the difference in spring rate between the stock springs, sprint springs, and the b&g springs. I would like to see the car lowered. I will be lowering mine in the spring or summer.

i'll take pictures and post them tomorrow night, the springs dropped the car a little more than an inch and it handles much better than with the stock springs

Any pictures yet. I have seen the sprint springs and I think they make our cars look really good but I would really like to see the b and g spring also.

Has anyone with lowering springs gotten any shimmy's? Anyone who has had a lowered s-series knows what I mean. I don't mean it shimmering all the time, but maybe at light take off, or at a certain speed just slighty...

Honestly though, how is the ride quality with the lowering springs. I know sometimes people get excited and what not about their new goodies that they sometimes overlook little things while giving their opinion. I'd love to lower my car but don't really want to sacrifice ride quality. Now I don't want to hear you have to do that blah blah blah. I've ridden in lowered cars where you truly couldn't tell. Having a highly moddified Saturn I'm just concerned about lowering this one. I like the smooth ride and would give up some smoothness. I just don't want shimmering, loud sqeaking from the springs, and bounciness...

the first thing i noticed after getting the springs installed was the lack of bouncing. i've had other cars that i've lowered and have gotten the bouncey feeling. as for the ride its only a little bit stiffer than before
