    I'm looking springs for the 98 GT convertible I just bought. I need some opinions and pictures please. I'm putting Chrome saleens 18x9/10 replica's on it.

    I know a lot of people sware by Eibach prokit but My rears just took a dump and drag my arse like a bad dog.... Roush kit is nice as long as you like a set spring rate. H&R spring from what I hear are made in the same process as Eibach only made in the USA and H&R have a great Customer service and waranty. Ive been trying to get eibach to send me new springs for there lifetime waranty but with no luck...

    I went with the Eibach pro Kit. If it wasn't for the X-pipe hanging so low I would have gone lower (street kit).

    IMO hands down the best springs for looks are H&R Supersports, they give the front a tiny bit lower so it NEVER looks like the ass is sagging. Also they design them slightly better and have a kit specific for the 94-95, 96-98.

    Well Droptop, I ordered the Steeda sport superlites. If I don't like them it's your fault. Ha ha

    hahaha!!! i like the drop on DTP's car but it's too low for me... roads around here are too unpredictable. be sure you dont pull up too close to curbs and watch out when you or your passenger is opening the door!!! i know these are "givens" but you'd be surprised at how fast you forget. i got my front spoiler pulling up to Pizza Hut the day after i lowered it... boy was i embarrassed!

    I know this thread is a little old but I'm going to whore it up anyway...

    I have H&R SuperSports, Bilstein Struts/Shocks, MM C/C plates. My drop was 1-3/4" in the front and 1-1/2" in the rear. Would have been another 1/4" but I put in urethane isolators.
