i have the svt kit, its a very good price for under 300 for everything you need, gives you good ride and awesome handling, personally tho my rear is still a bit higher get the eibach sportlines, they'd look great, most ppl like them as well

Go for the Eibach Pro-System and the Progress rear sway bar...damn does the car handle good with this setup...

I put a rear sway on mine all you need is two pieces of metal with 3/8ths holes about 2.5 inches from each other, mig welder optional

Or hope that the car already has the appropriate factory mounts...I have an early 2000 model year car and it came with the mounts already there.

Hey now, I answered your question though too...like I said before, I think the Eibach Pro-System or something else with about a1.5" drop would look great with the 17's...along with the Progress rear sway bar.

dont drop any more than the pro-kit. i have a feeling it will rub especially in the sedan. I'm putting those in this week. I'll let ya know how she sits.

+1.

My experience with 16" wheels and sportlines leads me to recommend not going any lower than the pro-kit as well.

Although I still have to put on the camber kit so that may take care of of my rubbing issues.

No issues with the 15" wheels but the width of the 16" wheels (and 17's are even wider) makes them rub occasionally.

The rubbing issue is all dependent on the wheels used...with that said, I'm not sure how the 49mm offset will work with the sportlines, but I have seen a sedan, with the sportlines, with 18's without any rubbing issues, without rolling the fenders. But I do agree, go with the Pro-Kit or something with a similar drop.

About 500.00 for the kit (springs, shocks, and struts)


I am not sure of the price of the full system with the anti roll bars and all.
