coil overs

ok i was getting ready to order to buy the ebiach sport lines because every seemed to have nothing but good things to say. but the cops around where i live are crazy about ride hight and there is alot of construction and some times it snow alot. so now im really thinking about getting ajustable coil overs so i can raise it up in the winter or if a cop gives me problems. so i did alot of research on the sportlines so now i gotta start looking at other stuff any imput? any companys i should stay away from or deffinatly get?

The thing is, cobalts come so high from the factory that dropping them a few inches, still doesn't make it look like a lowered car lol

IMO coilovers are just too much money if you are not racing, and really using them for what they are meant for. Although the height adjust ability would be nice!

TEIN makes great suspension products.
but i agree with OBZ. its a lot of money to spend on dd suspension. you could get the koni yellows, and have adjustability for winter, with spings. and get the stance you want for less money.

Plus the Cobalt has a solid rear axle suspension so this will make the ride more uncomfortable since it will become stiffer with the coilovers

Yeah, Sportlines dont make cobalts look like they are touching the ground.
They make the car look "normal". Reduces wheel gap, sits very nice IMO.

There's no way a cop could say your car looks lowered. He'd have to be on crack or something. lol

I mean look at pics of cobalts with sportlines.

does any one bottom out a lot on speed bumps or anything because of lowering?

I have once. And I have been through some hardcore highway construction.
Speed bumps, go very slow over them.

Definitely worth it.
