I first lowered mine with the Eibach springs ( 1.6" front and 2" back ) and kept the OEM shocks and the ride was horrible: harsh and bouncy....Then I bought a set of Tokico shocks and that made the ride nice and firm...100% better than before..
Then I went to the extreme and got a set of Goldline Supper Slammers (2.75" front and 3.25" back) and the ride is more stiff than before...but after a while I got used to it..

I too got Eibachs. I got the full kit though, the springs, the front sway bar, the rear sway bar.

It sits lower than my wifes, she has H&R's on hers

I tried to get Tocikos, but could never find anyone online that had them. I got kyb's and have been very happy with them.

Handling is great.

XtrmDC2 told you in your other thread that the Gold Lines are discontinued. Your best bet is to find them used.

If you're looking at Eibach's, I might be selling mine shortly.

X2, don't cut them, your asking for trouble.

I'm with XtrmDC2 on the Eibach's and Tokico's. Don't know the drop but only two fingers of space between tire and body on both the front and rear. Also have the upper strut bar and 17's all around. Handles great.
