Suspension set up??

Alright, I am shopping for a Eibach set up but still have doubts to what I should do.

I am going to go with the pro dampers but I have no idea which springs would be better.
I want to put some 205/40/17 or 215/40/17 after install of suspension.
Should I go with the regular pro-kit springs or are the sportline as effective?

I need feedback on rubbing, and which is more suited for occasional 60mph exit ramps....:)

I feel the sportline would be great but do not want any issues with rubbing on 17's.

Your help and feedback will determine my purchase...so please help out a man with a foci.
Thanks...peace.

Well, I would go with the Pro springs, gives you a nice 1.5 inch drop which gets you low, but not too low to worry about rubbing, and what not. Also, if you go any lower than this, you are gonna need a rear camber kit for the 2 inch drop.

Thanks RPIJG.
Makes sense. How about in the long term? Did anyone see a better spring over the other.

Pictures of your drop would also be appreciated.

Peace.

just get the ebachpro system with springs and dampers. Riding on aftermarket springs will eventually kill ur stock shocks
