Go ahead and pick up the eibach if you have them locally. The exchange is crap right now so avoid buying in the USA.

Eibach are good springs, i had them before my coilovers!

Well sorry to just jump into your thread like this but im pretty much trying to decide as well.. not sure if Eibach or Ksports. Eibach has a sale right now which is why im going towards this choice (Client Validation)

But i have a question if someone can answer me . Running a 08 cobalt LT which would give me a 2 front and 2.5 back. Would i need to get anything else to make the ride smooth? If so what else would i need. thinking about buying them next week (hopefully they are still on sale)

Thanks in advance. Once again sorry for just jumping in on your thread, didnt want to make a new one with same title lol..

@OP, BG will be lower than eibach. Also ebach offers two sets of springs, pro series (not as low with good handling) and sport ( lower with less handling). Some members have had issues with eibach products durability, on the other hand a lot have used them with no issues.

@ joker, a good compliment to lowering springs is new struts and shocks. Fe5 is what you want. They are the shocks from the 08-10 SS/TC

Pick up some FE5 shocks or similar, unless you'll run the risk of blowing your stock FE1s with lowering springs.

Ksport gives a good drop but they are about the cheapest springs out there. Look at my showoff for reference. There is a thread here somewhere that lists all the available brands and gives drop specs.
