Yeah, Eibachs seem to be a mixed bag. Some love them, others not so much.

Are you looking for performance or low?

Only good Eibach springs are there pro series but they dont really lower your car by much. I here a lot of bad things about those springs so I wouldnt bother with them unless they are really cheap.

I loved my Eibach's.

I had the sportline kit.

Had them for over 30k too, and dropped the car a little more than the 2.5"~ than was stated. I was cool with that.

Check out the post on facebook in Chevy Cobalt Owners about the eibachs... there have been quite a few cases of the springs breaking and there was problem a few years about with fake eibachs being produced. If that what you go with make sure you buy them from a reputable dealer or vendor, and I would stay away from used springs.
