Eibach suspension kit

Can any body tell me what's the difference between the Eibach Pro Damper Sport shocks (first link) and the Eibach Pro-Damper shocks & struts (second link)? if any. im trying to replace the stock ones on my 06 GT.

Their the same shock, one is named slightly different because they include springs

But by looking at the picture they look slightly different. Is this just a mistaken picture on the tire racks website?

Hmm, maybe as a kit they have a different style? I didn't realize the pic difference, I just read at the bottom that their described under the same name except one says 'Pro" and one says "pro sport".

So, now I am just confused as you lol.

I would say the kit is worth it since the springs are designed to go together. But what is your ultimate goal? Height or handling?

I'm trying to get the best out of both. I'm pretty sure both will be better than stock in both aspects since I'm trying to lower the car. The kit seems like a better option because it will come out more than $200 cheaper (adding springs to the AM ones) . But that's one of the reasons why I was wondering if there was a difference.

AM often has great prices, and will often have MSRP prices on what SEEMS to be things that compete with items they want to push. I know they often have a price match, but I do not know how it works.

What is the ultimate goal, from experience, after a certain point in power and tire combo, a lowered car reduces weight transfer which is not ideal for drag launching. But if you are willing to sacrifice some launching ability for an overall handling car then it is a great kit. Eibach makes great stuff.

It looks like they're the same struts/shocks. Although, I don't think Tirerack.com has an accurate picture of your exact model, like AM does. If you look at their reviews, there's one for an Eagle Talon and Pontiac Grand Prix GTP... Sounds like they use the same picture for all models to make things simple.

We have a Eibach Pro-System Plus kit with Springs, too. However, ours is more complete with Eibach Front/Back Sway-bars and bushings. Take a look if you're interested in a more complete package.

Also, let me know if you have any other questions!

Shane

Thanks alot for the help Bori. Yea I'm looking for handling and aggressive look more than anything.

Shane. Right now I'm on a budget which is around $500 or $600 Max. And the one given exceeds that for almost $300. Bori did mention the price match service u guys provide. Is there a way this can apply to these parts? Or what's the easiest options u guys have to get something similar and stick to my budget?
