seems the Eibach is the better option for me since im not trying to lower it so much to begin with.

Im wondering if the fronts get lowered more than the rear or the rear, any idea why? I mean lowering both front and rear the same amount would maintain the rake if im not mistaken.

I need to find out how much will all the crap going on the front end of my car lower it and how much would it lift on the back from the slight weight reduction which is mostly happening in the rear, hope I dont upset the vehicles balance too much.
