alright guys, well ive had my eibachs on for about a week and realize i wanna go lower, i dont have many for coilovers, so dont say coilovers lol.

so how do i go about going lower? should i go for adjustable shocks and struts? i heard you can get shorter shocks for the rear so if you drop your car more you still have a good bit of compression in your shock.
how should i go about the front though? just like adjustable struts?
my plan was to gedt kyb gr2 shocks/struts then cut my springs about another half inch all the way around, then i rethought, and thats probably not the cheapest/best way to do it.

so gentlemen, help me out please, Thanks much!

dunno...I'm going with fe5 suspension and B&G springs...to my knowledge that's pretty much almost as low as you can go, unless you go coilovers, from what i've seen. Why don't you sell your eibach's and get some lower springs? if not then SAVE for coilovers and do it right?

those are not an upgrade just a replacement, the best shocks and struts combo is the FE5 kit

I believe there is a suspension sticky with the lowering of all available springs.

There shouldn't be any confusion.

B&G springs are not as lower than sportslines. The reason some of the cars with them look lower on here is cause they have the ss with a lip.
...b&g are lower than sportlines. They're pretty much the lowest. I'll prove it to you once I install mine :D

if you go to low you have more of a chance of bottoming out
If you go low properly, your suspension is firmer, (even if you just get lower springs) so no, not really more chance of bottoming out...as long as you don't drive over speed bumps like a douche...
