Which lowering springs?

Hi,

Im looking for lowering springs that are sporty to drive but still have the best comfort as possible, lowering my ride about 1"

What would be your choice?

Whats your experience?

Thanks a lot!

If you are interested in a brand new set of H&R springs I have a set in box and never used.
I went with the Eibach pro kit instead.

Since u r in Germany I would buy H@R springs. I have them on mine and love the ride. I went with the sport spring that is 1.4 in front and 1.3 in back. Also have 22's, not sure what it would look like on stock wheels setup. my .02

@UF4LIFE102SS: Why do you recommend H&R especially for Germany?

No real big reason they r just made there. All springs will work just a name thing. I just seen a CAMARO on here that i liked the look and he had H@R and that sold me.

Don't over look Pedders,they are a very high quality spring and don't require the bump stops to be cut.They cost a little more but you get what you pay for.

Unless they've changed, they are just reboxed Eibachs.

Contrary to what someone posted above, there can be a HUGE difference between springs. If you want a good spring from a good company, look around before you buy. Plenty of reading on here with the help of the search button. Most of not all the vendors or manufacturers will ship overseas.
