How much of a drop are you looking for?

Our sport springs offer great ride quality (the best of any on the market) and improved handling, while dropping it approximately 1" in the front and 1 1/4" in the rear.

Our ultralite springs offer good ride quality and improved handling, while dropping it approximately 1 1/4" in the front and 1 1/2" in the rear.

For your purposes, I would recommend the sports, but if you are looking for more of a drop, then ultralites would suit you as well.

I explained it in the other spring thread where you and I were talking, but for the purpose of this thread, I'll mention that our springs are Pro Kit springs painted silver and labeled "UPR by Eibach". That's what I meant by they spec out the same. Same length, height, rate, shape, etc. Just a different color.

Same purpose as my car. I'm running the UPR springs and I enjoy them quite a bit.

This was a deal breaker for me, the 1.5"/1.5" drop looks nice.
Not true!!! they will work with stock struts/shocks... although you will get a better ride with aftermarket dampers.. But again they can be used with the stock equipment !
