Mr.Bergner Honestly, for 580, I would just save up and get a set of coilovers. I really wish I had done that myself. I have the Sportline system (springs & dampers as well as 25mm rear sway and 24mm front sway) and it's not bad. Gives me the low look that I like, but as mentioned earlier, the springs are a little too soft for my taste, and I think it leads to some of the tread wonder that I get on the highway.

ST 2K5 I'm going to do it the right way, I decided to go with the Koni yellows. I'm currently shopping around and found a set for $580.

Koni yellow's, but your on a budget so go w/ the eibach pro damper's for your sportline's. I have the Sportline system on my foci for a DD w/ no issue's.

Buickboy I would either go with a set of Yellows or ditch those springs.

I had a set of adjustable Tokicos on my 07 (no yellows available for that year) and it was OK when the shocks were stiffened up. Not great but OK. The sportlines are too soft until theyre compressed a lot and by then you're already on the bumpstops.

mainest My guess is that the Eibach Pros would be a better match for the Eibach springs, but I have very little experience with serious drop. You might contact Eibach and see what they have to say. I had FRPP springs (not SVT springs as I said earlier) with the Koni Oranges on my ST, and just could not tolerate the harsh ride on the gawdawfull secondary roads we have here, especially when frost gets into the ground. I can't imagine NH is much better. Handle well? definitely, look good? I thought so, but the harshness got very old very quickly, even after swapping in the SVT seats. Sorry I can't give you more insight.

ST 2K5 ^^^ that being said, any suggestions would be appreciated. Eibach pro dampers & the Koni Orange was the two choices I was lending towards.. Budget obviously coming into play here.

mainest I don't think those Konis will like such short springs. I had those same Orange Konis with FRPP springs, and one of the struts started leaking in less than six months. I was very disappointed. They performed well until the strut went bad. They were comfortable, and handled well (with a 24mm rear bar). You will probably want shocks/struts that have shortened shafts and have been revalved for the 2" drop you can expect from the Sportlines. The Koni Orange is advertised as one step up from OEM. Good luck.
