It takes a bit for the drop to happen. Initially with sportlines from eibach, my car looked like there was no drop. Now it had been set and I'm at a 1.75" drop in front and 1.5" in rear.

Re: What Did You Do To Your Sixxer Today?

I got to move the baby seat from Little Red ( my 04 V6 DD ) back to it's proper home in the wife's Sable! Then proceeded to clean up the backseat....

Ah the joys of being a parent to young children. lol

Car looks sexy man. If I buy springs do I need to buy shocks and everything. Or can I just get lowering springs ?

Well it really depends on the drop. Over 1" or 1.5" needs caster camber plates. As for shocks and struts, it is a good idea to replace them while your down there. If your car has high mileage, than you probably need some new ones. If you do a big drop (1-2") then eventually and quickly the old OEM will go bad or you will quickly notice that they are already bad. I bottom like crazy because mine are bad...
