    About how many inches should I lower my car? I was thinking 1" in the front and 1.5" in the back. I don't want to put it in the dirt. Lemme know what yall think and if you have any pictures of your lowered cars post them. I'm trying to get some ideas here. Thanks!

    I may be wrong, but i believe the eibach prokits lower it about 1.5 all around. I have those springs on my car and i think it sits perfect. Im not so low that i have to steer around large pebbles, but it doesnt have the baha look anymore.

    I think it looks way better slightly lower in the front than the rear.
    1.5 - 2"
    You can remove one or both of the isolators, to get a little more drop if desired.

    I like my Eibach Prokit springs. I measured before and after. They dropped it the stated 1.5" all around. Just right in my opinion. And the ride is better than stock too.

    I'm definately going with H&R's later after I get long tubes so I can see how far I can go down.

    my bbk h pipe hands pretty low to the ground. probably around 4 or 5 inches. Even if i lowered my car and inch and a half every bumped i would hit would scrape the pipe.. im still contemplating on lowering it or not.

    I run 255's in the fronts on all of my rims since the cut and there's no rub. I'm not sure about the 275's.
