    Question Suspension Qustion

    Does anyone have Eibach lowering springs and long tube headers? I'm not sure if the headers will hang too low for street driving.

    I run the Pro-Kit with Jet-Hot headers. No problem with the headers. Now the Y-pipe is a different story, I have to be careful or I will scrape it.

    i have the prokit too, but with kooks headers and the y pipe with cats. headers are fine. cats hang just a bit lower than the sub frame connectors.

    I have the Pro-Kit with MAC headers and my Y-Pipe has been scraped due to my father not being careful.

    I would be scared shitless to run the Eiback Pro kit on my car. I've got full length long tube headers and stock springs/ shockks and from the ground to the bottom of the lowest point on my header is only 4". The pro kit says it will lower about an inch and a half. That would put my headers only 2.5" above the ground during normal driving. If I encountered a speed bump or a pot hole that caused significant shock bounce I'd bash a hole in the header or bend the mounting flange on the heads or twist the Y-pipe. How much ground clearance are you guys with headers and the pro kit running?

    probably right around there...its low to the ground but i havent dented the cats yet...i live in lawrence, ks...worst place in the world to have a low car because of all the potholes and horrible roads. the only thing that it has done is worn out my springs within two years, so i had to purchase a new set this past fall
