Sickk Christmas Gift

so my brother scored me some Ground Force lowering springs, he told me they were a good brand, plus they have a lifetime warranty. I've searched the threads for ground force but most people recommend Eibach or Pro Kit's.

Does anyone have them? Are they of decent quality and should put them on?
And just for opinion does anyone think lowering it would look nice with stock tires and rims, or i could wait til summer and do the Lowering springs and tires all at once?

Even running stock tires I think lower would look better. They are just too high from the factory.

I have them. they are wonderful. they ride smooth and the drop is very decent. the rear is a little high so I am going to put my progress sport springs on the rear whenever the snow clears up. I am just very picky and obsessed with being low don't listen to me lol

im not sure if there are different lowering kits for the cobalt from ground force, mainly because they're website doesnt show cobalt springs, but anywho are your drops 1" in front and 1.5" in back? i believe thats what the box said

i think it's 1.3 front 1.5 rear I am not 100% sure but they're nothing crazy. i have to say my progress and ssc springs handled better but if you're looking for a comfortable ride with a slight drop and a little handling improvement these are the best ones yet

they also came with eccentric camber bolts which are a must for lowering! make sure you get an alignment after installing them so you don't get camber pull.

apparently my brother knows "something" about installing them, but i know a guy who runs the monroe shop next door to where i work so ill def take the balt over to have an alignment done.

is there any advantage to lowering a car in the winter? id think it might be a bad idea... should i wait til spring?

I have a pretty low front lip and there's no problems. you just can't go plowing into piles of snow. I've never really had any issues.
