    I have been leaning towards the eibach sportlines coupled with kyb agx adjustables but after reading some reviews about them i'm having second thoughts. people have complained that they are too stiff and don't lower the car enough, etc. i'm sure many of you have experience with some of these springs so give me some suggestions. thanks

    How low do you want to go, and what kind of ride do you want? Nobody can give you a spring recommendation until you say what you're looking for.

    sorry, i'm wanting something for the street but also gives the best performance possible without going to a full out autocross setup. right now, my car's dropped 1.5" and i like the drop in the back but i want it a little lower in the front. that's why i was leaning towards sportlines. (1.7 "f) just don't something too extreme and harsh, but offers kickass performance.

    I voted for the Prokit, they're what you described, but if I were you, I'd look into Tanabe GF210 springs. The orange ones, not the pink ones. They offer a decent ride and are very good for performance.

    i have the sportlines and kyb agx's in my 92 hatch, i love it!!!, its almost a two inch drop, and the agx's really help the ride quality, i like th fact that it ride like stock on the softest setting, and rides like a tank of the hardest, with crappy tires i can take a 10mph turn doing about 40mph, throw on some anti-sway bars, and ur set. IMO i enjoy the ride, i use it as my daily commuter, and as my weekend racer, i've been in so many lowered cars, belive me, you'll like it alot better, good luck

    I don't think the Eibachs will lower your acr to the heighth you want so I am going to go with the H&R but they are going to be stiff.

    Personaly i have a set of sportsline springs and a set of KYB GR-2 shocks and the ride is great. Drop the car about 1.9" all around. Nice stiff ride but still has enough give to make it a comfertable ride.

    Running the exact same setup on my car. Couldn't ask for more. Very nice ride on the springs, but when I adjust the struts to max stiffness and take the back roads, I get next to no roll. Plus, the Sports are about $100 cheaper than Eibachs. And the lowering is 1.75" F 1.5" R. Just what you're looking for.

    aight, final opinion here. i've been wanting the eibach sportlines of course but i've come across an auction that has some h&r race springs for my car and the bid is at 100 bucks.
    here's the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...TRK%3AMEWA%3AIT

    i was thinking this would be a good deal and save me some money even though i've heard these springs are a little too stiff although very good. however, i'm willing to save the money and suck it up and deal with the ride.

    yeah it looks okay, you will be sacrificing the ride, but if your okay with it, go for it. then again, i know by spending the extra money, i know what i'm getting and i know down the road it will be worth it. i love my sportlines and kyb's, not one problem. great ride and good performance when i want it.
