mk3 sedan lowering springs
ok im sure this has been covered at some point, but i couldnt find it so dont blast me. also been a while since i posted on here....

ok i just picked up my 2012 SEL with the 17" wheels. i want to lower it but im not sure which springs to go with. i had eibach pros on my 01 s2 zx3 and was pretty happy with them. but i looked at them on this model and its only a .8" drop. not sure if that will be enough to achieve the aggressive stance and cut out that understeer. I did see HR makes a kit too, and it lowers it around 1.5" but im afraid that may be to much. any thoughts or pictures?

There's a eibach that drops 1 to 1.5 on autoanything, check there bro

You can also look into the Steeda sport springs, they will lower the car about an inch as well

i saw the steeda one too, its odd to me they drop the front further than the back. it already has that rake stock....

H&R sprints for sure (or coilovers if you can "spring" that kinda' cash) - I could vouch for them any day, I've had them in the past and they're pretty awesome; I had them with 17" wheels, no problems at all!

I've heard some pretty solid things about the eibach springs....there is actually a sweet write up on here for them, its for a hatch but you get the idea(link above)

I've also been thinking about springs although I feel like everyone has a difference of opinion I almost feel as if its the same type of argument I heard about putting a body kift instead of suspension lift on my truck back in the day needless to say I got the body issues I figure lowering springs wouldnt be an issue either...?
