Eibach Sportlines on Basemodel

I have an Lt Sedan and was wondering if anyone has put eibach sportlines on this particular car, without getting camber alignment bolts afterwords. I want to know how bad the camber would be with out them since i'm quite broke. Thank you, Mitchel

You don't need them but they aren't the best springs anyways. Look great but ride like crap.

Dont get these springs!!!! They are bad news in the cobalt world. I got B&G lowering springs one of the springs that give you the most drop and the camber is just barely out of gm specs but not enough to eat through tires.

Also if you're located in a snow region, skip springs until the spring anyways.

Why? I did mine in the snow. Never had a problem.

I got stuck too many times with the SS bumper, granted wide tires and XXX saybar sticking out too. Got a new swaybar that's never seen winter, I would always seem to clear chunks of ice only to nail them with the swaybar.

True. I never really had a clearance problem with the stock suspension, but got stuck much more often after a conservative 1.5" drop on Pedders and SS/TC shocks. Wait until spring if you have to do it.

I never got stuck in snow after being lowered. The only reason to wait is to keep road salt off the new springs.

Canadian winters are especially rough. I once chucked a solid steel traction aid clear across the street and into a Volvo while trying to free myself from a spot. Wouldn't of happened riding FE1s.
