If you're talking about clearing the driveshaft - No issues whatsoever.

Hitting parking blocks - That's not something the springs are going to control lol... That's up to you to not pull in to the spot too much.

No driveshaft issues and the springs will not lower your front end enough to hit a parking curb. I clear by roughly half an inch.

you will want to consider other parts too....shocks/adj panhard bar/lca relocating bkts. Suspension is not something to do 1/2 way.

I put SR's on mine and am happy but I haven't pulled too far up on the parking blocks.

Effectively, you'll need at least the Panhard bar if you don't track it. when I did mine, the diff shifted by an inch so it really is needed. And definitely some camber bolts if not plates.

Definitely do the panhard bar. Shocks/struts, LCAs and relocation brackets are recommended as well.
I have the BMR handling springs which are about the same drop as the SR springs. I have pulled into a few spots too far and my splitter is barely a milimeter above the curb. Some curbs are higher than others so you'll definitely want to be extra careful parking.

What is the issue with the lca and relocation brackets? Are these a must when lowering the car with eibach pro kit springs?

They are not necessary but they are a must. When you lower the car with any brand of springs you are messing with the car suspension geometry. If you track the car, your traction would be extremely poor. By adding Relo beakers, you'll bring back the correct geometry of the rear suspension resulting in better traction. Hope that helps.

So if you don't track your car, then they would not be needed? I'd like tom lower mine an inch or so. Daily driver. I was told I MAY only need caster/camber plates.

If you are not gonna be abusing your car, daily running speed limits, your car will survive for sure without them.
