Lowering question

Hey guys i have a 2013 v6 and I wanted to use lowering springs to drop it about 1.2-1.5 inches I'm looking at the eibach pro kit and the hhr springs. What do you think is a better company? And I know I need a panhard bar do you guys think I would need nothing else?

Can you tell me how the car feels as well when you drive it? And also did you buy a panhard bar?

I've got prokits. Just about a perfect stance imo. With just the springs the ride quality didn't change much at all that I can remember. I did need a panhard but not everyone does. I recommend it though.

Just this past week I bought the Eibach Sportline springs and I am very pleased with them. I have yet to get any pictures but it made a very noticeable appearance. The ride quality didnt change to much. The only thing I really noticed was a stiffer ride. I did not have to buy a new panhard bar however that will be in the near future. A few things I would reccomened is try to have a lift availible as well as a wall mounted spring compressor. It took about an hour to change out all of them. Then just be sure to get a new alignment afterwards

According to the manufacturer it says 1.4" in the front and 1.5" in the rear. I have yet to be able to take pictures of it to really see though. Eventually I want to get a picture beside a stock one just to see.

I like my SR springs. They don't lower quite as much as armymedic but that works out for me. I think it's just about perfect for the person who has to go over speed bumps and things like that.
