Nothing is too low as long as your bumpers not on the ground haha. There's a lot of pictures on google that will give you an idea, just depends on how low you want to go.

We will see. I just installed them last week. Springs just about touch the stops. Ride is a little stiffer than I expected. Found some wedges in a racing magazine I may try out to see if I can soften it up a little. All in all, not too bad. Car finally sits where it should.

I loved my Eibach's, for all the haters out there.

Sportline kit.

My Ksports are good, and were cheap...but I honestly would buy the Eibach's a second time. They rode great along with lowering the car, evenly.

But, coilovers are better.

If you want a good performance spring, YYZ is for you. Pedders is also good but my lord do they rust. I went from this:
