Both will work. The Sportline is around a 1.5" drop, and I think the Pro kit is a 2"-2.25" drop, and a good number of fans on Here, too.

you should also get shocks and struts designed for the lowered stance, stock shocks and struts wont last as long...

but with my recent luck with eibach i wouldnt trust them either...

your budget may really limit you... not to sure though

The FRPP kit from Mike at Hilbish is 1.5" drop and has everything you need. I think he sells it for 375? Alot of members got the kit and really like it.

From what I understand one of the eibach spring sets is MUCH more stiff than the other one, but I cant remember which one. Make sure you find out which one or else you may hate the ride.

Or preferebly one of teh suspension guru's can chime in and fill in what I dont know lol.

The Pro is stiffer than the Sportlines, but there aren't too many complaints about it. There are many options out there. What type of driving do you do? What condition are the roads where you live? The FRPP kit is the cheapest, and actually good stuff. If you want something more sporty or comfortable or slammed-looking, we can sort out what you need.
