***Official Lowering Springs Thread***

Same with the exhaust and intake threads. Since this is such a common mod, lets stop cluttering up the forum with a bunch of similar threads. Post any reviews, pictures, recommendations about aftermarket lowering springs here.

I have Eibach Sportlines on my SS, the ride is alittle more choppy/harsh but I really love 'em, I had the already good FE5 suspension but putting these on really helped out in turning and the look. Had not upgraded the shocks or struts but I well down the road.

I paid $500 for springs, a new pulley and alignment so springs and alignment should be about $400

Eibach Sportlines
About $250 from Turbotechracing.com
Drops 2.5" rear 2.0" front

Before



After





COMPARISON of a Base G5 with stock srpings and my balt on Sportlines





**NOTE:** Ive had problems getting my car re-aligned since installing these springs.
Pulls to the right pretty bad, even after 4 times getting it aligned, and balanced each time.
