    For the Re-Valved Bilsteins go to WS6 Store . com Thats where I bought mine & they are awsome to deal with ! They have them for $382.95 If you want a 1'' to 1 1\2'' drop and want to stick with the Eibachs I would recomend the Pro Kit its more like the drop you want , the Sportlines are more of a 2'' or more drop . I have both the Re-Valved shocks & Eibach Pro Kit & I love them .
    Also when you lower your car I would recomend buying an adjustable panhard bar ( like a UMI ) to re-center your rearend !

    Definitely get the Strano springs. I'd go with Koni shocks if you don't mind spending the extra $$.

    Trust me, I'd get the Strano springs. They lower the car 1.2 inches, but you can also do the heater hose mod if you want to lower the ass end a little more. I'd go for ride quality and handling first, then aesthetics.

    I've heard NOTHING but good things about the Strano springs. I just bought a set a few weeks ago. Still need to install em, but I don't have any doubts as to how they will look and handle. If I'm not mistaken, some people also have problems with the Eibachs sagging over time and actually lowering it more.

    Heater hose mod=removing the rear isolsator cups from the springs and sliding some rubber hose around the coil of the spring instead. Provides a subtle drop.

    why get the SLP revalved ones where they put too much compression and not enough rebound.
    Might as well get a proper revalved shock.
    Plus, depending on the springs you are getting, the shock requirements will change w/ the spring rates.
    I wouldn;t recommend the Sportlines anyways.

    The SLP Front Bilsteins have less compression dampening, and more rebound dampening than the Bilstein HDs.
    It's by no means the best valving, but noticeably better than the HD valving,
    and to the best of my knowledge the rears are the same between the two(SLP, HDs).
