I have had them a few months now and the ride on mine is pretty much the same feel as stock. The lower center of gravity really helps in the corners.

Well I ordered the springs off ebay and I installed them myself. The ride is a little stiffer than factory but I think you would be okay with 18's.

The drop is about 2"...looks great. Later on, though, I want to get some much stiffer springs that will work for autocross - these aren't much stiffer than stock.

I personally want a company to make some stiffer springs with a 1 inch drop. It'll get rid of most of the wheel gap and keep it from scraping on most things. Also, help with the handling.

Hell the camber was right on the only thing they had to do was adjust the toe on the pass side. It was easy to do. The only hard part was getting the car on the rack they had to use all kinds of crap to keep the middle of the car from bottoming out.

I stopped at my local Bell Tire and they quoted me $530 installed ( I think, it was a few months ago). It was for the Eibach Pro kit. He said it would lower the front 1.2 and the back 1.4. Im possibly considering the pro kit. What do you guys think of this? The plastic piece underneath my car allredy scapes on my driveway, bank parking lot, local taco bell lol. It is ok though if I take it slow and approach at an angle.

I scraped more before I lowered it because I was un aware. I hardly scrape anymore. maybe 3x times since I lowered it becuase I pay more attention.

Right you are Goofy! I learned to never pull all the way up now and avoid that heartbreaking sound of scraping plastic! ;)
