i went with the tokico illumina suspension, springs and adjustables, with steeda caster camber plates . my 98 was sitting on 18x9 saleens with 275/35/18 on all four corners. looked mean and handled like a true sports car

Go with the Eibach Progressive rate springs. I got them and I'm very happy with them. You might want to think about getting the Steeda X2 ball joints to match the springs. If you don't in about a year you'll be replacing your stock ball joint.

Lots of LA'ers in here yay! I got eibach prokits on 16 inchers you can look at my profile in the pics. I wish i had larger rims/bigger tires/or it was lower <IMG src=smileys/smiley8.gif border="0">. Well I also have a bolt on my x-pipe thats only a few inches off the ground, dragging road kill is not thrilling haha.<edited><editID>mabguru</editID><editDate>37980.4646412037</editDate></edited>

Just do it. Worry about that if the problem occurs. You might just have to tighten the bolts on the h-pipe. I had to same problem.

Not to hard at all. But if you don't know what your doing you might what to get soemone who does. Because the springs are under alot of pressure, and if you don't take them off right it will come flying out, and cause you some serious injury.
