So I'm looking at Eibach sport lines for my 05 zx4 st. They claim to be dropped 2" in the front and 2.2" in the rear (I'm gonna get the struts to match) I was wondering if the st already had some lowering to it from the factory compared to base models. So it would actually be less than a two inch drop because it's already dropped or if stock suspension on an st is the same as base models. I hope I made sense any info is appreciated thanks!

As far As I know, the springs were the same as the regular models, so there was no difference in ride height compared to a normal zx4. I have yet to install my pro kit which isn't as big of a drop as the sportlines. But the 05-07 ST does sit rather high.

In the rear for sure but I swear that the st has stiffer suspension because my dad has an se hatch and his is all over the place but mine is right right where it should be but I could be totally wrong

The 05-07 st used the same struts as the svt, but springs were softer on the st.

So it's about a half inch drop from stock then? So the springs would actually be 1.5 drop in the front and 1.7 in the back?

Springs were exactly the same height on the ST as a stock focus; it just had better struts and shocks (similar to svt). So the eibachs should drop as advertised. Personally, I love the 1.5" drop the FRPP kit gave my ST.

I have a buddy with a 2.5 inch drop which is badass on 17s.
But can anyone tell how low this car is? I think it's the perfect height!

hard to say, here's my car in comparison. What do you think? I would say that picture is a 2" drop.



Although my car isn't level in that pic, so not a great comparison
