Thats kinda scarey cause those Eibach dampers look like the 06 style but I HAVE to have the part number so I can make sure they are different.

They changed the springs fro the 06 model from the 05, that I am positive. As fro the rest of the suspension, I am unsure if anything else changed.

But mike look at that link that the one guy gave and then look at the Eibach pro-dampers.... they have the flat perch and everything like the 06 but I am not going to buy without a part number to go off of.

no because they don't make dampers for the 06 yet.

Ok, the link a few posts back to the Eibach springs/ kits at Tire Rack was for a ZX4. Will those work on a ZX3, or do I have to wait for a different set to come out for that model? Forgive my ignorance here; I'm a total noob. Just picked up my new ZX3 a week and a half ago, and I'm learning on the fly about all this stuff.

Basically, I just put a set of 18" Kazeras on the car, and now it's plainly evident it needs to be lowered. Does anyone know of a kit that will work on an '06 ZX3?

Thanks!

I know that Eibach has a set of springs designed to work with the STOCK dampers for the 06 but nothing on the dampers according to the PEOPLE at Eibach although tirerack says that they have them for the 06.
