i saw an increase of around 3 mpg at a highway speed (75 mph) in my 98 z28. which was around 29 mpg. so i can believe their claims. if i remember right, it was a 1.5 inch eibach drop kit. you wont see any change in city driving. the faster you go the more you would see this benefit.

Think I'll drop mine 5" to make it green and Obama friendly

Is this a different kit? Pro vs Pro-Plus?

It should be the same thing. It appears as though the Pro-Plus is just selling them as a package deal.

Titan is a great company and is now getting in to the Domestic market. They are good people and try hard to make sure we are informed as soon as possible. If you have any questions on this or other items I would suggest you give them a call..

I'm sure they are a great company but their prices are WAYYY out there. $130+ more for Eibach springs and the same for their sways is just outrageous.

I belive the Pro kit is just the springs. The Pro Plus kit is springs and sways.

But what about ride quality? No B.S. from the ones that have them. I want the look, but I don't want a harsh ride. I've been in some dropped cars and the ride wasn't for me (very harsh - feel every little bump in the road).

What's the options for someone like me? I want to do a 1" drop while maintaining close to stock ride quality.

Can someone with the 1" Eibach springs put a pic from the side of the car sitting on flat ground with the wheels straight? A before pic would help too.

Thanks Don O! How do you feel about the ride difference? Same or just a little stiffer? Is it worth it?

It is true with areo dymanics lowering the car practically down to the ground reduces drag. Some on the top I believe, but it is the bottom drag that is reduce more so less air underneath the car dragging it along.

How can 1" equal 13% increase? How much of an increase would one get with 1/2" drop? 6.5%, 3% or 10%? The math does not work. I'm sure it will increase mileage, but 13%?

What math? You are just throwing out numbers. It is not a simple linear relationship between the drop amount and MPG% increase. Drag and air flow are tricky concepts with slightly complex math. I would assume since we are talking about an established company here they did some actual testing along with running calculations to come up with that number. Others here have stated seeing increases in MPG with their lowering of vehicles in the past. It would make since that it has been a seldom talked about benefit cause what performance guy used to care about MPG? Even though a properly tuned performance setup can actually make more power and get better mileage, a lot of mods send the fuel curve the other way and who cared if it made power. Plus we are talking about like 3 MPG here. That isn't a ridiculous number. You could get that by adjusting your driving habits.

Problem is the code is only good for one day then they take it off. I tried the same code the next day and it didnt recognize it. But if simply check the website each day it will come again. I found it on a wendsday only thing that sucked was it wont arrive until monday so the people that want to order ealier in the week to get it by the weekend probably wont see that big of a discount. Just check it everyday it runs 24hrs I am pretty sure before it changes. Its 25 dollars off today
