Lowering springs

I'm looking for a set of lowering springs. But I don't want my car to ride horrible. Any of you guys know of good lowering springs that will lower the car around 1.5in and still ride decent?

Go with the Eibach Pro-Kit. Very nice progressive spring.

Re: Lowering springs

its all about the rate, look for some around a 400lb rate (eibach has some like this) and a progressive spring can ride better

Got the urethane spring isolators front and rear and a set of sensatrac shocks. It rides really well and when you get into the corners the progressive rate of the springs reins in the body roll quick.
