Default Anybody have Eibach Prokit?

I'm planning on ordering the Eibach Prokit for my 2002 Gt which will lower it 1.5 inches in the front and back. I wanted to know from anybody who already has these springs on their car if they had to install caster camber plates as well to bring their alignment back into spec?

I have the prokit, had it aligned, and didn't need c&c plates.

I've got them but don't have the CC plates. I would suggest getting shocks and struts with the springs for a better ride.

You don't need CC plates for the prokit.

I have the pro kit on my 99 gt. I wasnt satisfied with the amount of drop in the front but the back is just right IMO. I would definitely suggest that you buy the spring isolators to avoid some squeaking. Also, my front struts shot craps about 5-6 months after I lowered it. I bought Tokico D-spec shocks and struts and it completely change how the car handles. Definitely worth the money. Good Luck. I can post some pictures if you want.

I've had mine on for 3 years now, with stock shocks, struts, and c & c plates, and haven't had any problems at all.

It's really not that low imo. They say it's a 1.5" drop, but it sure doesn't seem like it to me. Honestly, the car rides the same as it it did 3 years ago when i installed them.

Lol...our roads do suck, but other than the ocassional speed bump or pothole that i've hit, everthing has been fine.
