Is Eibach Pro Lowering Springs Worth It

How much of a drop will it give me on an 07 lt coupe? I wanna drop at least 2+ front and back? And suggestions?

B&g springs. Most aggressive drop. Besides coilovers.

They'll do that but they are absolute crap, got rid of them that I had on my IRL after the first 1000 miles of my ownership. Constantly bottomed out, bouncy and don't handle good at all.

Road magnet spring or maybe SSC are both good. If you do autocross then YYZ's are a must that's what I'm running.

Would have done the same but it's just my daily IRL, cobalt is on Koni's. Got a stock suspension for free so that won.

Kinda new with all the stance and what not learning as i go. Any prefered struts to go along with the springs? Want something thats affordable and worthwhile :D im liking the way andrews sits. Also im gonna be going with 17's as well so theres gotta be clearance as well

08-10 FE5 is what you'll want a great part to compliment most springs.
