First impressions with the Pro-kit.... LOW!!! Mine looks very low. Don't know if everyone elses is the same.
Ride quality is good. Definately handles better. Seems like a stiff ride. Personally i like it. Don't know if i'm crazy for that.
Seems like something is "hissing" when i'm driving.. don't know if this is normal??? Is there a break-in period for the springs...????

Pic 1 and 4 are before the drop and Pics 3, 5, and 6 are after the drop. Hope it is good reference for everyone.

They're either caused by the spring rates being insufficient (aka too soft) or the damper/shock rebound rates don't match the spring rate type thus causing squeaking noise upon contact/movement.

Progressive springs, I'm guessing?

It's the Eibach Pro-Kit. And when i talked to the guy who did the install he said he had to cut the "stopper".....??? Maybe this messed something up...??

With it being lowered, I think you need some replacement wheels. For some reason, it makes the OEM wheels look small.

too bad replacement wheels run up atleast 3 grand.... i would really like to get a small drop and new rims. too much cash tho.
im thinkin about a small drop, any suggestions on springs alone? i dont want to spend to much and i definately dont want cambering issues.
