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.
