    Need some help with springs please!

    I have a set of Z06-18's I'm putting on in a few weeks. 9.5's in the front and 10.5's in the back. I was wondering what springs were out there to get me a drop of about 1" or a little more. I am keeping my stock shocks on until this summer. I want a good stance, but not too low. I have ground effects. I was looking at the Eibach Prokit? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    You are in luck, I have the same wheels, 9.5 up front and 10.5 out back. I have the BMR lowering springs on mine. Exactly what you describe, drops it enough to kill the 4x4 look but not slammed down.

    Whats the exact name for those BMR's? How is the ride? That clearance is about exactly what I'm looking for. Looks Real Good! thanks!

    Eibach pro kit is good 1.25'' lower, actually an additional .25-.5 by the time springs settle. u will have to re-center ur tires, but do that 3-4 weeks after the spring install since the springs will settle... That's the setup on my TA...

    Eibachs are a 1.5" drop. Have had them on for about 3.5 years now. I think they're pretty much settled by now. With your ground effects you'll need to be mindful with speedbumps and steep driveways. Not a bit problem. You'll need to pay attention on how the drop will affect the clearance of your rear wheels and the fenders.







    Sure I had to roll the fenders in a bit (you can see where the tire used to rub). But it all worked out.
