KSport Lowering Springs?

Does anybody have the KSport GT lowering springs on their Cobalt? I've been looking for cheap lowering springs for a while and found them for $156 with free shipping. I know that everyone on here will say you get what you pay for and try to talk me into buying some more expensive ones, but I'm on a budget. Just wanting to get someones opinion on them that has them installed.

If you're on a budget, you really shouldn't be lowering your car. Yea they may only cost you 160, but then when your shocks and struts blow from the added stress they weren't meant to handle, that 160 is turning into a $400 bill because you were on a budget in the first place

My Eibach's were awesome for the money...minus all the haterade sippin' they get here.

I had them for over 30k miles when the car was totaled out...and it had factory FE1 suspension...was just fine.

Lowered the car about 2.5"~...didn't have any issues in winter either.

I have ksport and I like the drop however the handling isn't the greatest. I did blow the rear shocks and replaced them with SS. If I had to do it again I would go with a better brand, or coilovers

Nothing wrong with Ksport springs, but you do want some shocks that can handle the drop to pair with them.

2x. Also, it'd be smart to do your springs and shocks at the same time to save time/money/hassle. FE5s are a no-brainer.

You should get YYZ's. But if that's beyond your budget, you should buy my used Sportlines. I'll make you a sweet deal
