1.5" Front 2.2" Rear drop

Any one done this kind of setup before? I already have a 1.5" drop for both the front and rear. I like the way the front looks but the rear is still to jacked up in proportion to the front. I have KW springs with Eibach dampers. I am looking at replacing the rears with the Eibach Sportlines (2.2") to level the car out. Any pictures of this setup out there? I understand that the Sportlines are pretty stiff for a daily driver. I could not imagine the ride would be that much worse than what I have with the KW springs I have.

Maybe someone can get to do a group buy on the rear Eibach springs. It is going to be hard to find any springs being sold seperately. I am having a hard enough time finding 2" springs. I don't think the .2" would make much difference in apperance. I found if you call TireRack customer service you can purchase Eibach parts seperately. They want to charge $70 a piece for the Sportline rear springs. It is hard to swallow $150 on just two springs.

HR only makes a 2.5" or 1.75" drop on their rear springs according to their website. I think 2.5" would be to much of a drop while 1.75" would not be worth paying for considering I already have 1.5" drop. That is the problem I am having is finding someone that makes a 2" drop springs and being able to purchase them seperately.
