I'd go with the H&R's. They'll offer a lower drop than the Eibachs, (1.3 claimed/1.5 actual compared to Eibachs claimed 1") and they're better engineered. I say this because Eibach has a habit of taking cars with similar dimension, weights, etc. and making one spring set for all, where H&R actually engineers every spring set for each specific vehicle.

heh, good, i ordered mine 2 weeks ago (h & r sports), that guy said he have the spring tonite, will post some more info after i put it on, and i heard that h&r springs have that solid feel when going through very little bumps, whereas eibach is so soft that the feeling is not quite good, and eibach claims that its 0.8", after it settle its around 1"-1.2", thats isnt even noticable, so i got h&r, hope its good

Eibach Pro-Kit for sure. 1.5" drop and excellent ride quality.

macrossranma,

I was wondering what model and body style you have. I was checking out tirerack.com and they said the sport springs excludes 4 door EX models. I was wondering why and if you got them anyways.
