Default Wanted rear lowering springs

I am looking for some rear lowering springs for my PT.I only want to lower the rear but if you have the full kit at a good price that will work too.
I am probably going to get the Eibach Pro kit soon but I just want to see if I can find some for just the rear first so I dont have to get the hole kit.

Why would you only lower the rear? Any kit you find is going to drop that lower than your front and leave you nose-high. I bought the H&R sport kit:
Approx.Front Lowering: 1.4
Approx.Rear Lowering: 1.3

Now I've had it on for two years the car has settled to just over 2" both front and rear, but I have run the cah cah out of it, both road track and quarter mile, plus running the Tail of the Dragon too often.

If you're trying to get your car to just ride level, look at some of the kits that lower the front 1/2" and the back 3/4". H&R makes a set for '01-'08 PT with that drop. That will lower your center of gravity, give you a bit more control, feel more stable, make cornering better on you and your passengers, level your ride and not increase roughness in any way. Well, that is assuming you have decent shocks. Me, I've got sort of a race/street setup on mine, and would be a bit too stiff for you I think, but I dropped mine and may go lower yet.

My car is about 2" higher in the rear so I figured lowering it around 1.5" would put me where I want to be.I have seen pictures of cars with the rear only drop and they are still a little higher in the back.

Ohhh okay, gotcha, my vert was only around 2/10ths difference front to rear before my drop. My my back end is about 1" above the front, but on the vert I really like that rake. Makes it racier looking.

Of course, everyone says that when I get in, the driver's side is 3" lower than the passenger side, been waiting for H&R to respond to my emails about that....
