Lowering Springs

Quick question, whats your take on the eibach pro kit lowering springs? I've got a 2.4 sport. Says they drop 1" up front and 1.5" in the rear, worth getting for my car? I can pick them up new for 120 if that makes a difference. Thanks.

I'm just looking to close up some wheel gap and from what I've been told these are still pretty close to stock for ride feel. That true or have I been misled?

^ For 120 brand new, is that still a good deal for these and how bad of a ride are we talking over stock? Also I heard that the drop on these was rated for the non ss or sport cars, would my sport still get a 1" to 2" drop with these?

They're great...they do make a little noise when turning while backing up but just once...I helped a friend install the same springs and his does the same...nothing anyone else would notice though and it doesn't bother us...

They are alright for daily driving though? I got them just for the road, and I've got coilovers for the track.

Oh you suck!...I wish I could afford a set of COs...

Yes, they're just fine for the road...stiffer than OEM and from my expience, probably not as good as COs...when I switched from lowering spring to COs on my Mini, it handled bumps way better...probably because the damper had better rebound controls...
