Which should I get for my 05 ZX3? The Eibach Pro System Kit, or the SVT suspension kit? Any Suggestions?

I'm trying to decide between Pro Kit and Sportline Kit. I think I am going Pro. It all depends on what you want and what your roads/weather will allow. A least that is what I am coming to understand from the other input. The Pro will be about 1" lower than the SVT from what I have read. Do not take that accurately until someone else agrees. Hope this helps.

There are two major differences...the amount of drop and cost. Spring rates between the two are relatively close. For the money the SVT kit (on sale at northcoast for about 260.00) is a screaming deal and will result in significant handling improvements (remember you also get the bigger SVT rear sway bar). I have the pro system and if the SVT kit was available at the time (2004) I would have gotten it. That's not saying I don't like the pro system either, its been great. But if cost is a major consideration the SVT kit is hard to ignore.

the pro-kit is better for a daily driver, [driving] the sportline is really low, and if your roads aren't super smooth it will shake your teeth loose. [rant] I can't say anything about the SVT kit cause I didn't even know it fit a ZX3. I have the Pro-kit and love it.[race]

I agree 100%. Plus you can sometimes find the springs, struts and rear sway bar on here for cheep. I already have the SVT dampers stock so I got some SVT springs and once installed...will be very happy!!!

I am rather sure that the svt kit fits the 05 ZX3 from what I have read on other threads... thanks guys!! I am going with the svt kit probably, I live in PA and I think a 1.5 inch drop might be a little much because the roads suck balls... and I drive to jersey every day for work... and it stinks just as bad there...

If you need help with the install just ask me if you want. I've done it for both fronts and backs. Make sure to get a breaker bar!

I'm leaning towards the FRPP kit w/EIBACH swaybar kit from Mike at Hillbish Ford for my new '09 SES. My 2nd choice is the KONI coil overs.
