You can't really go wrong with any of the major brands, but personally I have run BMR springs on several of my own cars and been very happy.

Chase what do you think about Eibach pro for V6? And how do you best compare the kits... is it how much they lower 1" or 1.5" or they have some sort of quality rating..

I prefer the Hotchkis springs for the V8 and the BMR V6 specific or Hotchkis springs for the V6. We have found these springs to offer the best ride while working well with the factory dampers.

Feel free to call, PM or email me anytime with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler
