Looks great man. How was the install and how is the ride and handling quality?

You'll be fine with Eibach Sportline springs like me but you'll need the rear camber arms for a proper alignment

Did you install the springs yourself? If so, How hard was it? I still can't decide if I should go with lowering springs or leave it as is. I would love to go with coilovers but it is not within my budget right now.

The springs cost me $230 the camber arms are Eibach but made by SPC so you can get either brand. I paid $200 for them.
I did the spring install at my buddies shop together with him but I'm assuming it would be worth about $200-$300 to install but it really all depends on the shop.
Then of course you need an alignment
