Well I did a search because I know this type of stuff has been covered, but what are some good springs that will give me about a 1.5" drop. I've been looking at the H-R springs and I was wondering if you guys have anything to say about these also I would like to see some pics if you've dropped your car 1.5".

Thanks

It all depends on what you are trying to do. I had the Eibach Prokits and they were fine. Switched to the Neuspeed Sport springs because they are stiffer. Either set will give you a really nice reduction in wheelwell gap and they are progressive rate springs so ride is still comfortable.

I have Eibach Sportlines, 1.8" and I think they are perfect for the 5th gens, was considering the Pro Kits but I have seen numerous Ludes with them and it doesn't look any diff than stock. The Sportlines aren't to much of a drop but it elimanates the nasty 4 finger fenderwell gap. BTW I have roughly no finger gap in the front and about 1 in the back.

You don't need to have a camber kit do you??

You are supposed to get a camber kit but when I went in for an alignment i was only off by abit on the front. Camber kits are around $250 CDN over here, I won't even bother, just rotate your front and rear tires periodically. Trust me its a perfect drop, my wheels don't tuck in but the fender just sits on top of the tire. I was gonna go with the H&Rs but I got a better deal with the Eibachs.
Yeah I've heard the on going debate on which has a higher spring rate but does anyone have actual proof on which is stiffer????

RS*R Downsprings. 1.5 all around. Rides smoother then the H&R's...because my sister has the H&R's on her car..more stiff.
