re-raise...return to stock anyone?

After more than a year with an aggressive lowering kit I am seriously considering raising it back up to stock levels. The ride is so rough and our roads are just not forgiving.
Before I do serious damage to my wheels or worse I feel I need to make the change.

I love the look but the ridability and potential damage to the car is not worth it any longer

Anyone else gone back?

Do you think I can just get a shop to put stock springs back in... allowing me to keep the upgraded eibach sportline components ?

Just get you a set of eibach pro springs they lower the car ony 1.5 inches i beleive. I'm running the sportlines on my 2010 GT. The pro's arent a drastic drop like the sportlines. that should give you the look you want with out the harsh ride. There are many different springs to choose from that will give you a good stance without the bonecrushing ride..

I think the drop with the sportline is 2 inch..maybe 2.5... will 1 inch really make the ride that much better/ worse?

yep, also do you have aftermarket shocks and struts or still running the originals. they make a huge difference in ride quality as well.

I think swapping from the sport line springs over to the pro would give you what your looking for.

I am about to buy a used set of proline plus from someone online. Do you think I should just skip it? I am getting it for about 680 Canadian shipped.

This may sound dumb but how much is that in U.S. dollars?
