let me guess, you put the springs in and didn't get an alignment done? anytime you raise/lower a vehicle, it changes the alignment. in your case, lowewring the car made the camber and toe more negative. meaning negative camber = tires leaning inward from the top more when viewed from the top. negative toe = tires point outwards when viewing from the front. all this causes the tires to wear from inside to outside.

I also lowered mine with the same springs and yes you have to get an alignment.

get an alignment and make sure you get a printout of the given specs.
Go with the GM except for the camber... try getting a bit of negative camber instead of positive camber... will make for better wear/grip.
GM did that to induce understeer on the cars, and it makes the outside edge of the tires go bald.

yea, I have the eibach sportline 2'' lowering kit with bilstein shox. Everything was done in a garage except the alignment. You must have your wheels alingned when ever you mess with that. I must say that the eibach bilstein combo is great, im loving the handling of my car. Only downsides are clearance issues bumpy ride.
