    Sportline Springs "Eibach"

    I have a 1995 trans am and wanted it to love meaner or a more of a race car look. I was thinking about getting the KYB AGX shocks and struts and the C5 rims. Front 17" and 18" on the rear. Should I get the Pro-kIT or the Sportline Eibach springs? Just don't want tire rub etc. Will I have any problems going lower with the Sportline springs? Please give any advice soon since I want to order these very soon. Are there a big differnce in look? Any pictures of the two will help. Thanks.

    i got the sportlines on my 98 Z28 and it made the car sit ALOT better. u should have no problem fitting 17"s up front and 18"s in the back. i still have the stock 16 inchers but i still got alot of sidewall. p245-50's. if you go with 17's up front and a lower profile tire u should clear no problem. i rub once in a great while when im going down a ramp and i have the wheels turned a little bit.

    heres a couple. i dont know if u can tell from the pics but the front wheels have a little bit of negative camber. in other words they lean in a little bit. but i havnt noticed any bad tire wear, actually the fronts wear nice and even.

    Looks good, I guess I'll go with the E-bay C5's but the tires I picked out are Nexen or Sumitomo Front (245/45 ZR17) and back (275/40ZR18). You mentioned 245/50 and wondered if my selection would work? Thanks

    if i was you i would get a diff offset rim for the back so u could go with wider tires in the back. say 275,s? i think thats what the SS camaros have. as for the second number u said 40's? that refers to the profile of the tire im not sure if 40's will be small enough but they should be if ur only going with 17's. my plan is to get some of the 5 spoke Z06 wheels 18's rear and 17's in the front.
