KYB is like... what ricers put in their cars to make it look like they are running a real suspension setup. They are pretty much a stock replacement. If you want a seriously good shock/strut look into Konis or Bilsteins.

It looks like they are the eibach pro kit, what can you guys tell me about those springs? I wanna see some opinions, are they stiff or do they ride smooth? My car is a daily driver so I don't want something too stiff.

Those are Eibach Pro-Kit most likely. They're black compared to the Eibach Sportlines which are red. It'll lower it and 1.5" all the way around. That's what I have.

No they actually ride pretty good. I mean its still bumpy cause its a sport car it's not meant to ride amazing but I think it rides better than stock springs. I actually just got sportlines in the front cause is want it to be more lowered in the front. I just haven't installed them yet. And thanks bro!

I say go for it but if they're not off a convertible your car will sag a little bit in the rear but not enough to make a huge difference

I'm not for sure on install cause my car came with them. I got a buddy that is putting mine on my sportlines for me so if I would guess a shop is about $200-$300 in labor.

I don't mean to jack the thread or anything but is it alright to put sportlines on the front and pro-kit on the backs? Cause my car came with pro-kit all the way around and I want it lower on the front so I got sportlines. AM says sportlines lower the front more than the pro-kit obviously but the rear both have the same drop for sportlines and pro-kit so I didn't see why it would effect anything.
