    I have LT and a 3 inch y pipe with the eibach prokit and I do scrape a bit here and there over speed bumps, mostly just the turndown and the muffler and the driver side of the y pipe cuz it hangs a little but nothing too bad. And the ride isn't too bad, it is a bit bumpy but nothing to bad. I could live with it. But I do want some konis
    Ill post pics of my setup later tonight, or you could see it at the true duals stickie on the external engine area I think in the last page.

    When I installed my Hooker LT and ORY, my ground clearance improved at least 3/4 inch. I'm not lowered, but I'm not concerned about it now, if/when the lowering happens.

    I have Kooks.
    I HAD the Eibach ProKit. Never touched the headers.


    Stay away from SLP headers, and you should be fine.

    You will need an alignment after the spring install.
    I know a few people that have installed SportLines...and ProKit.

    Most say they like the stance, but weren't the biggest fan of the ride quality.
    I have learned over the years that is seems the Eibach springs are more appearance than performance.
