Im in search of the perfect set up for next spring. Lowering my car is next on the list. Im hoping to get some ideas and see some different suspension set ups

sportlines

before sportline springs


after sportline lowering springs



im not sure how low your wanting to go but for me these springs are niceeee i live in mass so theres alot of pot holes and bumps and these just are just about as comfortable as stock and they handle 100x better for sure.. just my 2 cents[hihi]

Im going to take advantage of eibach discount currently offered and get my car lowered a little bit to increase gas mileage and handling. Do you guys think i should go with the Sportline Spring Set or the Pro-Kit Springs? i want to notice an improvement but i dont want to be so low that i have to worry about bottoming out constantly. Sorry if i seem over worried lol my previous vehicle was a 3/4 ton truck that i never had to worry about being too low so i guess i feel like a car seems low already but my focus definately needs a bit of drop to it. im also painting my 16" rotas with plastidips new glossifer on top of the standard black plastidip so the wheels are a gloss black to roll with the color scheme of my car better. Also What do i need besides the springs that come in the kits to have them fully installed? im at college so i will be taking it to a shop to have them installed for me and be aligned.

I'm leaning more towards the sportlines myself because of the drop. I have some 5 spoke svt sitting in my basement. Im thinking about doing some sportlines and running 20/25 mm spacers front and back

Sorry, that isn't going to work. One on the 17x7 you won't be able to stretch the tire to keep from rubbing. Two you won't tuck right nor be flush right. I mean it can phyisicaly work, it just won't look right.
