I installed some Eibach springs a few weeks back and finally got around to taking some pics.

It was a lot more time consuming than I thought it would be. Not too terribly difficult, but a huge pain in the a$$. If you can install brake pads, you can do the springs. Probably 100x easier with a lift. I was limited to jacks and jack stands with standard hand tools.

Anyways the drop was better than I expected. The car must have come down a little more than 2". Almost looks slammed. Handles great and zero issues so far. I will probably be upgrading my shocks and struts over the summer. Favorite mod right now.

I went from street edge coilovers to the eibach pro kit, and it made a HUGE difference. Get the eibach shocks. The ride will be much better.

hows the ride height differnce from between the two? were you able to go lower with street edge?
Yes, you could go lower with the street edge, but the dampers they supply aren't up to the task. I replaced fronts and rears within 10k miles, and after another 7k they were shot again. Suspension source stood behind their stuff and replaced em for me at no charge, but they weren't going to send me new sets every 10k for free, so I had no choice but to swap em out. And the ride itself, while much better than stock, was nowhere near the ride I have now on the eibachs.

Was thinking of Sportlines but the drop on yours looks pretty good for what I am looking for.. Did you just swap springs? Looks like a Sportline drop?
Pretty sure it's the Prokit springs. They're not red. It's says Eibach Z/Q on them...whatever that is. Custom shop installed them. Swapped out the stock springs.

Looks nice!! I cant believe how much lower your car is in the rear compared to mine. Mined dropped but not as low as yours, same drop in the front like yours but like you said the ride is great!

Well now you have me thinking... I had a 1990 5.0 coupe with Sportlines and loved the look but as a daily driver might be a little to rough on the bumps so hopefully I can get a few more pics on the different drops....
