    1' lowered 02 WS6 What's best?

    If one wanted to lower his ws6 1'', what combo would be best. I was thinking Eibach Pro-Kit for springs with Bilstiens for shocks. I only want to lower it 1'' and maybe go for 18'' wheels. Just doing more homework while Blackhawks fly over head and bombs go off, like theres any thing else to do. Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks to anyone who has answered any other threads.

    ProKit is closer to a 2" drop than a 1" drop.
    Hotchkis springs are roughly an inch.

    I have the pro-kit and went down much more than an inch. I forgot to measure before.

    Onyx rock, nice stance. How does it handle at high speeds in the curves? And all you have is just BMR springs and stock shocks, does that remove any of the small squeaks and noises you read about in the forums. Should you use a lowered shock with a lowered car? I am pretty picky about my ride and apologize for so many questions? I do like your ride height and that is a mean look. Nice job! What size tires are on the front?

    BMR or Hotchkis is definately the way to go for a near 1" drop.

    IIRC, you could keep your stock springs and pick up some Koni SA shocks for the front and install them on the lower perch. I've heard there's a 3/4" to 1" drop on the front. Then you could get Bilstiens for the rear and do the heater hose mod to drop it an equal amount. I've heard that's a real nice set up for our cars.

    It handles farely well but I dont do alot of curves. I enjoy straight line racing . I dont notice any squeeks but I cant hear shit over my exhaust anyway. My other suspension mods are in my sig. I am happy right now with the setup. Thinking about subframes soon though as I am getting the infamous dimples on the rear quart panels. I am cutting 1.67 60ft with this setup too.
    The rim\tire in front is 17x8 41mm offset w/245/45/17 tires. No rubbing at all.

    More current pics of car in sig if you would like to see more.
