Re: Lowering spring rates

I have the Eibach Pro springs on mine 1 1/2" drop in the rear and 1" drop in the front, looks perfect IMO

I agree, Eibachs give it the perfect drop.... definitely levels out the high rake in the back

Always a good idea to get a better suspension. It does come at a cost though. Scraping is something that you do need to keep in mind. I actually ditched my chin spoiler because I would scrape on everything and I got the boss front fascia. I was just ready for a new look anyway but it will scrape worse. No way around it.

You might be one of the few brembo guys that would be interested in some springs a guy has been advertising on here that just lower the back end 1/2 inch.. They are supposedly made for the brembo pkg cars specifically.. Check brembo50.com or something like that..

No I got the boss fascia and it no longer scrapes. The chin spoiler i had was really low and sucked to drive with.
