    does any one of the other companies include the rear camber links. i think that i would rather spend the extra dough to save my rear tires.

    Best? Best what?

    Colour? red...green...blue?? Which one?

    Want it Dropped low...or just a wee bit?

    Spring rate? Driving alot with a full cup of hot coffee? Or cruises on sunday with your friend Mozart? Do you want to go to the Track?

    Price? How much you want to spend?

    Hey, I did\'nt want to start a new thread so I\'m posting here with an idea...what do you think of everyone with their vehicles lowered posting a pic in this thread of their vehicle, like lets say a side profile similar to Pearl_hatch\'s sig but a little closer, but also listing what springs or coil-overs or whatever with each pic and maybe a discription of how they feel the vehicle rides etc;....basically just to see the different looks with different drops and if nothing else it would be cool to see everyones ride.

    Just thiught I\'d throw this out,


    cheers,

    I\'m curious where I can find a good shop to install my new Eibach Prokit without getting bent over.

    The 3 shops I\'ve called in my area (Orillia) want to charge 300 - 400 including alignment, plus tax. Is that the going rate? It sounds awfully high for 4 springs.
    My Mods:

    Subtle but there.

    Most places charge $120 for lowering and $70-80 for alignment.

    Most dealers will charge you 1hr. per side and another for an alignment.

    Shop around local shops b/c they tend to be \"lower\" than dealers.

    Thanks. I\'ll be heading to Motorworks next week since I\'ve heard good things about them.

    Shops up here have to get their head in the game if they want business. They all charge double what T.O. does.

    Hope the above link works.That is were I got it from.
    If the above link doesn't work, the list only has the Sport Springs. Is that the one you got?

    This may have been answered, but if I were to put on RX-8 rims with 225/45 tires on a 05 Mazda3 GS - then put on the Eibach Pro-Kits - is this typically what you guys do, to achieve a good look? Or should I be majorly concerned about rubbing under normal driving?

    you will be fine. The RX8 rims have a high offset, so rubbing won't be an issue.

    I see the part numbers have been listed, but where are some places to purchase these from? (Especially the pro-kits)

    ^^ Check the forum marketplace. Sponsors like SSG; Rick; etc, have them for sale or run gb's. A lot of peep's are looking for prokits, so you may want to hold out for a gb to see if you can get good pricing on prokits (or watch for used ones).

    These springs have been designed with a modest rate increase of approximately 20%, and will lower the car .6-inch front, and .50-inch rear.

    barely a considerable (visible drop) but there is a performance difference. Something to consider if you want a very mild drop.

    Don't mean to bring this thread back from the dead, but anyone heard of D2 Racing Springs for 2004-2009
    Claims to drop 1.4" all around.

    Hey guys, dont want to make a thread and this one seems fitting.

    Im looking at these corksport springs. They say they have a F 2.25' drop and R 1.75'
    I dont want a raked look really, but im not sure if it'll even be noticable. Theyre $209.00 which is a good price, but would go with sportlines or caunuck springs since both are close a 2' drop. this is my daily like most people here, so dont want to slam it... yet

    Car is a 2012 sky sedan. all stock.

    Hey guys! Also looking to add a lower stance to my ride. Driving a 2015 GT hatch and not wanting a huge drop. Not interested in camber kits or any of that nonsense. Was checking out the Eibach prokit. Heard it's 1 inch in the front and 1.3 in the rear. Was wondering if any of the members have had any experiences with this kit on the new gens? Can you run stock shocks? Any bump stop issues? Also I noticed Eibach has the springs listed for a 2014 only. Don't think anything changed to the 2015 model but I could be wrong. Scared about going with some of the lesser known brands out there. This was the smallest drop I could find on the market. Any help on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

    You can run stock shocks/struts with prokits/similar springs and many do but some people warn of increased wear, wearing out your shocks quicker.

    Anything 2014(+) would work. 2014 was just the model refresh. I'm pretty certain nothing spring related has changed in a year. If you want to be certain, calling up a dealership service dept. Might help.

    Thanks for the advice! Any recommendations on shocks?
