Springs

Ok. So...I just put new tires and rims on my car...i went from 14'' to 15'' in. and now the ass end of my car kinda sticks up. I want to balance out the height of the car so it doesn't look like this, making the whole car a little lower but definitely even. I need some advice on what to get, how much it costs, and where to get it.

I looked at the Eibach springs and were told they really aren't gonna make much of a difference. If anyone has done this before..mm yeah. input would be great.

Not sure who told you they wouldn't make a difference but they will. There are alot of people on this forum riding on Eibach's. I believe the pro springs drop your car about 1.5" and the sport line 2", not really sure but you can get the spec's from anyone selling them.
I have the Steeda springs which dropped my ZX5 about 1.5" and leveled out the car so it does not have the high a$$ end.

Springs could cost you from $170-$225 depending on brand and where you buy them.
Many people suggest replacing the stock dampners at the same time to avoid doing double work. The stock dampners will wear out quicker with the new springs so somewhere in the near future you will need to replace them. Depending again on what brand and where you buy them you could expect to pay $300-$500 for new dampners.
Eibach has the Pro-Kit which includes both springs and dampners for about $500.
There are many other brands to chose from you just need to look and decide how much you have to spend and which one fits your needs as far as height and driving style.

There are others but these are a few

Check out H&R springs... there are made in Germany and are pretty superior to alot of the "ricer made" springs... my brother races Mustangs and he told me about them.. I found a set on www.tirerack.com for my 03 ZX3 for $179.00 shipped
