    Sportline Springs

    I ordered a set of Sportline Springs. I measured first to make sure I wanted that much drop. I installed the springs and the actual drop is 2.5 in the rear and 2.25 on the front. Just wanted to let everyone know. I like it but some may not.

    Too low for me.
    Hell...the ProKit was a little too low for me.


    I have come to the conclusion that Eibach springs are appearance mods, not handling mods.

    ^ what shocks do you use? hows the ride?

    sportlines are the best by far as looks go. but as far as ride quality i have heard bad. then again, it is from a lot of people who don't replace the shocks at the same time which wouldn't be eibach's fault.

    Agreed.

    Those factory shocks are TOAST!!!
    Hell, the factory shocks suck with the stock springs.

    koni's plus stranos= in my mind the perfect drop and amazing handling ......ride quality feels better than stock as well..stiffer but more absorbant at the same time ......about 1.4 inch drop....theres pics of the drop with those springs on this site......do a search

    I have had the ProKit and now Strano springs.

    ProKit with stock shocks = Not bad at first. Took about 6 months for the DeCarbons to start to take a shit. Ride got REALLY rough. Stance was incredible.

    ProKit with Koni SA's = Great ride. Huge improvement over the DeCarbons. Still sat just a touch low for drag racing. Stance was lifted up just a touch, still outstanding.

    Strano with Koni SA's = Feels better than stock. Stance is great, but I did like the ProKit stance a touch better. Yet to try it at the track, but it feels better on the street when it comes to squating.

    It really is not that bad, but then again my car only has 37,xxx on it and I can't remember the last time I drove it. But I may look into some Konis.

    Im still on the fence about dropping my car. I spent way too much on the exhaust to have it messed up.

    btw ground controls are the best thing for the $$$ if you want to lower 2" or so. plus, if you later get headers or something that sits low, you can just readjust the ride height (and alignment).you can choose the spring rates too. i'd get these with konis if i had the money.

    Yea it gave my car a great look and aggressive stance, but the ride sucks donkey cock haha I HATE THE RIDE especially in Downtown Richmond where we still have cobblestone streets and potholes every 5 ft. I hit one the other night and I swear my pancreas got bruised lol
