Your camber will be slightly off. It was when I dropped my cobalt but still in car specifications.

People say the Eibach stuff has issues with our cars. There are better springs anyways.

Coilovers for real low.

But SSC springs I'd recommend for a nice mix of handling and low but if you really want low H&R or B&G springs are an option.

Do you have any locking rings out? I have ksports with the rears all the way down and I can fit 2 fingers In the wheel well and I hate it.

So far so good. About 700 miles. The camber was readjusted a little bit. Eibach suggests to buy/use a camber adjustment kit. I'm gonna see if I can get by without it.
