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?

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

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 lift...no issues I figure lowering springs wouldnt be an issue either...?
