sportlines are coming, sportlines are coming!!!!

Good news for the '06 suspension owners out there. I just got off the phone with Eibach and they are gonna release the Sportlines for our model year suspension in Mid-June. . The only problem I'm having is deciding which setup to go with, Pro-kit or Sportlines . Any suggestions would be helpful, and one more thing, the dampers will not be available 'til early to mid-fall. I LOVE to be LOW to the ground, but we do have potholes around here. that's Ohio for ya, go figure. just wanted to update everyone.

im still trying to figure out which set to get, i thought i was going to get the pros, but then i thought what if its not low enough, the sportlines look perfect, but i live in long island new york and we have alot of pot holes and my school has speed bumps. Also we get snow so in the winter i dont wanna be a snow plow.

i thought that the suspension would be the same for 05-06? anyway, i've got an 05 w/ the pro-system, and i haven't had any rubbing issues at all. from what i understand, any drop much lower than 1.5" will get you rubbin. the prokit will give you a nice 1-1.5" and get rid of that fender gap while still getting you clear of potholes, speedbumps, whatever else might get in your way.

here's a pic of my 05 c-dan:

Actually Lucas G it's just the '06 suspension they changed. Thanx FORD. Nice ride to shadowrunner, I like the way yours sits but it just doesn't look low enough for me. got any pics that are from the complete side like your kneeling down to take them so I can get a good look at it??

Pot holes are only a problem for low profile tires..
