Default Eibach Pro-Kit or Steeda Sport Springs

Which lowering springs should I get?

Here's what I want:

1. lower the car between 1 - 1.5" (both do this)

2. work well without other major mods (i.e., no immediate need to add shocks/struts, panhard bar/brace. LCA's, sway bars, etc.)

3. provide some improvement in handling/reduction in body roll

Most people here (at least among V6 owners) seem to prefer the Eibachs, but...

Stangsuspension.com recommends Steeda Sports highest of all:http://www.stangsuspension.com/store/springarticle.asp

This is what I was told by a Steeda rep:
Use our sport springs 555-8215 lowers approx 1" The rear will be a tad lower so the car is flat. Are you going to buy springs from a company who makes springs for 300 or 400 different cars or from one that makes them for a couple of FORD cars and who uses the Ford engineering department for design work?



Now it's up to you guys! Please post if you have any advice.
Thanks,
Tim

I've never had Steeda springs, this is the first time I've used Eibach. I love 'em though.
