lowering ny svt ?'S
 
Ok first of all i know there's tons & tons of threads about suspensions and what not but i havent really found the actual answer i am looking for.
Im relative new when it comes to suspenision, and im lowering my car next month so im asking if you guys can help me choose something that drives good and that can b for a daily driver.
Also what else should i replace other than the shocks?
Thanks in advance! :)

how much is your budget? if you can get coilovers, get coilovers

israel 11-02-2012 12:58 PM

Around $1,000

if you value comfort, dont get coilovers. get a 1.5" drop springs and new shocks. also budget for a 4 wheels alignment. you dont need camber plates or bolts, that much drop wont be a problem.

yea i kinda dont want coilovers and yea i was thinking about a 1.5"drop so my question is, which brand are the best to get? i see a lot of ppl use eibach, what other brands are good?

Get the Eibach sportline system= springs & dampers. DO NOT buy springs only. Struts/ shocks have to match the springs.

Whats the difference between the sportline and the pro kit? Is it only how much it will lower the car?

I wouldnt get eibach struts theyre crap. Check these out http://www.tirerack.com/suspension/s...2&autoModClar= monotube is a lot better than twin tube

Why is the Eibach struts crap? Crap is not having matched dampers for lowering springs. So does that mean Koni yellow's are no good, being twin tube construction?

I honestly look at all twin tubes the same now. Kw3s are a mono tube design and they cost big bucks. This seems like the next best thing to me, i want to hear from someone who has them. I will be buying them soon
