    Lowering springs

    I was thinking about getting some Eibach lowering springs but I thought clearance may be an issue. Anyone that has them are there any problems with getting the car on a lift?

    Well, do you ever plan on installing long tube headers (don't even think about going with SLP headers), or going with really large or wide tires?

    I currently have the Eibach pro-kit springs. I have 17x9.5 front and 18x10.5 rear wheels. I had to get an adjustable panhard bar to realign the rear wheels after the lowering, and that minimized the rear clearance problem. But I did have to have the rear fenders rolled in a bit.









    As you can see, the low stance looks pretty good; and no clearance problems.

    heres my prokit, you need to be careful on speed bumps and curbs.



    I now have longtube headers and offroad Y... the Y bangs a lot, and my cutout does sometimes also.

    I have the Eibach Sportlines and they are liveable even with LT headers. I'm running 17x9.5/275/40 SS rims with no issues...

    No. Actually, the guys that installed the springs told me that they could modify my stock rubber "shoes" so that the car would be able to sit lower, without going with the sport-line springs. That would have been TOO low.

    Be easy on curbs and bumps and you will have no problem, just dont get a tunnel brace like I did, then it becomes a PITA anywhere you go.
