Question Roush front fascia with Eibach pro springs

Has anyone tried combining Roush front fascia with Eibach pro springs? I want to lower my car and I like the look the pro springs give. I also love the Roush front fascia look. But I was wondering if the combination would make the front end too close to the ground?

Also, would lt headers be too low with springs?

wow that looks great! it doesn't look as low as I thought it would either. My main concern was the bumber being so low it would scrape the ground. but yours looks like its got some pretty good room there. thanks for responding

No problem, although it does scrape a lot, its always under the bumper so the damage is never noticable.

ya, dips are hard on roush front ends. but after a bit you will learn how to drive differentley and take dips differentley, unfortunatley sometimes you dont have a choice and gotta bite your lip and hope its not to bad.

Does the Eibach sit lower than the Roush stage 3 kit?

the pro kit slams the car...the roush lowering springs found on the stage 3 is a great stance and doesnt go as low as the prokit...if it were me, just go with the roush lowering springs and ull be fine if u have a chin installed on your roush front....its nice and low and u can still salvage most of the front chin collisions with the road, speed bumps, curbs, and parking blocks...
