How are you going to have the sportline kit when they haven't even made it yet?? Sorry just asking because I have an 06 also and Eibach only makes the pro-kit springs so far and if they have enough demand then they will make the dampers.

i think not!! i think that if you have 275 to get the svt suspension then save another 250 dollars and get eibach pro-kit and eibach dampners. then save another 125 for a rear sway bar. you dont really need a front plus its a PIA to get to. I have riden in a svt and i have driven my car and its worlds apart.

Wow, re-resurrected. We already have the SVT shocks, struts and sway bars. Just pick up some good springs and you're golden.

I am rolling on Eibach sways and kept the SVT springs.....I abso-freakin-lutely love it. Ride height is good for getting me around in deeper snow and no scraping on the crap they have here in town (I swear they design for SUVs).

I can throw it around a turn and get absolutely no lean...it rocks. Used to think that I wanted to lower it a smidge....but I see no point now. It handles perfect for me.

Springs are cool, but dont ever second guess getting sways. They make a HUGE difference.
