They are what I am going with, if that influences your decision.

Vogtland Sport Springs + Bilstein sport struts = my future setup.

Below a 1.5" drop the handling gets worse. Do a search, we had a really good discussion on the topic. But look lise, 2.0" drop looks better IMO, but if handling is what you are after, the the 1.5 - 1.8"

Ya, if the axis is like this \______/ then the handling will get worst. a 1.5 drop will make the axis completely straight..

of course there are other reasons to it too!

Racing springs...Neuspeed I know has the 2 inch drop...not sure about H&R...then there's always coilovers, but they're so damn expensive.

Question: If I got the Eibach Sportlines that drop the car ~2" and then got a front swar bar and had a stock rear sway would my car handle really weird? Under/oversteer ? The only reason I ask is because everyone keeps telling me these springs will drop it too much and i will need a new front sway???? I don't know i just want my car slammed to the ground. Thanks in advance.

I think that could cause some understeer - also, if you don't want the car really low go with something with 1.5" or less drop. But if you want 2" go for it man.

edit: read that wrong - slam the car if you want but the handling won't be as good. No rsb + a fsb I don't think is great for handling overall.....
