2-2 or 2-5, I was going to do 2-2 but instead went with 2-5. I have not installed the springs yet but almost every Cobalt I have seen with 2.5 in the rear has reverse rake. I had already ordered my 2-2 springs but was told by the supplier that he no longer had the springs in stock, so he gave me a great deal on a 2-2.5 spring so hopefully it works out. It depends on the money you want to spend, it would be ideal to go with a coilover setup but not everyone has the extra scratch for coilovers.

Yea eventally when I get the cash, either going aftermerket or SS FE5 suspension. Not many companies make a 2-2 drop. I Know D2 does, but noone has them in stock. If you have the money i say go with Eibach sportlines. I went with Ksport some people hate on them but I have talked to more people who have never had a problem with them. The sportlines and Ksport are both 2-2.5 drop. If you search the suspension thread there are hundreds of articles and pics about springs.
