I bought mine off a forum - fellow bought front & Rear, wanted MORE rake, so I got the rears - I think they were RedLine - I have no complaints - was either 1.5 or 2" drop. I think if you go 3" drop, ride is more likely to suffer. Had them on about 50,000 miles so far.

Got mine (Eibach Pro Kit) as my first mod almost 3 years ago. They were about the only ones on the market at the time. They were expensive then(compared to the kits out there now)and the Eibach's are still about the most expensive now. Lowered te PT about two inches and took the rake out. The ride is still good.

I have the same question. I noticed a huge difference in prices. I found Dropzone springs on Ebay for around $100 and Eibach kits for like $250. I know there will be a difference in quality, but what are the bad ones? Does anyone know? I'm military... LOL... can't afford the best of everything for my car!
