Hi all!

i broke one of my rear coil spring ( dunno how! ):confused: anyway i will maybe buy a lowering kit..

witch one is the best ? here is what i found

Eibach 1 3/4 inch drop for 391$ +taxes

or Apex 1.7 inch drop for 367$ + taxes.

any tips or hints?

thanks dudes!

I say go for the eibach's. The ride is firm but not too bumping. My opinion is that they give a tighter ride without sacrificing ride comfort*th-up*

Depends on the shocks your using too

Just make sure you get new shocks with a shorter stroke otherwise your shocks will blow after 5-10k...

I have Apex springs and they are very stiff, huge compromise on ride quality.

Hpwever, they do dump the car and u can get a set of springs and shocks for less than $1g before tax brand new.
