Eibach sport lines vs pro kit

Witch is better and i mean how much difference is the drop, and the ride quality?
I have never had lowering springs but have hurd they make the ride ruffer, is it true and if so how much?
Is this a good brand?
Good quality?
Do you have any pics with the sports lines and pics of the pro kit installed?

Thank you very much for your time and help.

The pro kit doesn't really even lower the car. It is mostly for handling.. both are great quality springs, but if you are looking to lower. go with sportlines. Yes the ride quality will suffer on bumpy roads but you will love it going around corners.

I too have Sportlines and don't think they're bad at all. They are bumpier/harsher than stock of course, but they aren't too harsh.

I did them myself and had trouble with the top nut for the struts...I figured it out after I was done how it should have been done (to go quicker), but I didn't care, it was done and I did it. I know next time I do it again (when I buy struts/shocks), I'll make sure I put the stockers all back together along with the aftermarket stuff on my car, that way I can just switch out the whole setup if I ever sell it.

I got mine installed at a shop :embarrest:. I don't have any tools, and I couldn't wait another 6 months to do it myself (was on leave from Iraq). Cost me $200 to get them installed.

That's not bad, if a shop around here would have said $200, I would have done it that way, but I'm glad I did it myself. I have all the tools I need as my dad was a mechanic years ago for Sears(late 70's) and since he passed away, they all became mine.

I think the cheapest I was quoted was $350-400.

I am on sportlines and I love the way it rides. It does not seem rough to me at all and there is a lot of construction in the area I live. I had mine put on at a shop and they charged me $100, $40 for alignment and $10 to rotate my tires.
