top speed- you gotta ask one of the other guys on here where to get em as to im on the west coast in bc vancouver and i dont know whats around there in your area

and MARIO09 how would you rate your stiffness? iv never dealt with eibach either..my setups are usually so stiff though if i put my 180 pounds of weight on one fender to push down the strut it would move about 2 to 3 millimeters? how would you rate yours

Buy H&R Sport springs and Bilstein shocks. Best bang for the buck. Eibach Prokit springs are junk. They are soft, and they sag in the long term. Not a good lowering spring IMO.

FYI I have IE StgIII springs. Somewhat a direct copy of H&R Races with a different ride height. Paired with Bilstein Sport Shocks (which are not capable to handle the beefier springs but I don't care/don't have money to revalve them for now)

I think H&R Races are about the same in ride height as the setup I have now. Look here to verify as my sig pic was taken on some off level ground ie. Not accurate http://www.maxbimmer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=97713

Eibachs and Bilstiens. If I had to do it again I probably would go something different, but they never really did me wrong for a daily.

nice nice..well all sounds pretty good.from what im seing so far most people like riding a shock and spring combo on the street then...my ride is pretty stiff and is alota fun since i never go long distances but would probably not want to since im running koni single adjustables and the ground control coilover conversion kit with 450 front and 600 rear spring rates.its pretty damn rigid

You have coilovers and you're complaining about not going low enough? Wow. I feel sorry for your ball joints.
