The "best" springs will need good shocks to go with them. Shorter stiffer springs require shorter firmer shocks. Budget accordingly. And I agree, you can't go wrong with Eibach. Look into their "Pro System" which includes springs and shocks.

I'm gonna lower my GF's 01 sedan, and I was wondering how low can I go without doing a camber kit? Only mod she has are the 17" SVT rims that I got from another member on here.

Believe it not...a lot of stock Foci delivered from the factory may need rear camber bolts. Just about any car that is lowered will need them. You want rear camber to be less than -1.5 to -1.6 degrees. A lot of Foci are delivered with rear camber settings as high or higher than that. While every car will respond differently, as an example, our Eibach Pro Kit (1.5" drop) increased our rear camber by almost a half degree.
