Need Help Deciding on Springs.

Need help deciding on springs.
I'm trying to decide if i should get the SS/TC springs or Prokit.
I know the front drop for both is about the same.

But the pro kit drops the back more then the front and I don't want the back lower then the front.
Also heard that they do tend to sag.

I'm don't want a extreme drop. Just enough to get rid of the 4x4 look.
Also what ones would give the better ride and handling?

All springs for cobalts lower the back more because the backs are higher when stock. aftermarket springs will give an even drop. u will still look like a 4x4 with the pro kit or ss/tc springs. SSCs lower only 1.5 and 2.0, but pretty much any other springs is gonna lower it more than 2 inches.

if you want handling and a little drop get pedders. they have the best handling out of all the available springs

Cant beat Eibach. Very reputable company that has been around for a long time plus the engineering and design that goes into them. I like the fact that they can adjust from normal daily driving to hard / spirited driving haha. Also the million mile warranty is nice too.

I'm kinda leaning torwards the SS TC springs.
I just measured the ride height on a new SS at the dealer and it is about 3/4 to a inch lower then mine.
And I like the stance of the SS.

I ended up going with the Pro Kit since it will lower the back a little more and even it out.
And because of them having the progressive spring rates where as the stock TC ones don't.
