    There's noway it's only 1.2"..add another 1/2" onto that ...i couldn't imagine the Sportline springs...they advertise 2"...does that mean the tire just rubs the entire time? lol

    Nice wheels. I have been looking at something very similar. How do you like the eibach springs? I heard a lot of good things about them.

    I like them a lot. The prokit lowers the car more than they advertise and if u go with a 315 tire in the back you'll def have to roll the fender lip and go for an adjustable panhard bar to keep everything center. I'm still running the stock shocks (coming off in two weeks) and the car still rides like its "on rails". For the money they are a great progressive rate spring and they really get the job done without gettin crazy or making the car look bad. I would NOT recommend the Eibach Sportline Kit as they advertise a 2" drop, it would probably be more like 3 inches and i couldn't imagine the rubbing issues with that.

    A lot of guys from this board use them, i know "Mr Luos" does too and he is very knowledgeable when it comes to pretty much everything with our LS1's, couldn't hurt to ask him some advice if you're planning a different suspension setup.

    Eibach springs are a very good spring.
    I have not rolled my fenders, had some light rubbing when WOT at stock height before suspension install.
    Now...not rubbing at all expect when the car is lifted but the rear has no load on it. And that is only hitting the bumpstops.
    And I am running 315's on the rear with the 17x11's.
    LCA's, LCA relocation brackets, adj. torque arm, adj. panhard bar, ProKit.

    Car not only hooks better, but it feels stronger in the corners.
    I do need to upgrade my shocks/struts still.
