Pro-Kit 1-1.25", and the Sportline is about 1.75 - 2.0" give or take.
Take a look at the Goldline Springs, they drop right in between with a 1.5" drop and they are very nice and ride sweet....
I just had some installed a week ago and I love them....250 installed for the Goldlines. (no pics of them yet)

Goldline Springs

i think i might invest in the pro-kit cause it's only a 1-1 1/4 inch drop...so you don't have to mess with camber stuff...

you still should get a camber kit so that you have minimal wear on the tires. though that little of a drop won't effect them too much.

The Pro-Kit in my opinion is one of the most popular spring sets ever !! The reason I got the Goldline is
because they lower a touch more than the Pro-Kit and I got a kick *** deal on them !! And they are identical to the
Eibachs in warranty and material and manufacturing process.....

I just got my sportlines installed with 18's and although they havent settled yet, they are looking sweet. I did get camber kits all the way around though. Check some of the members cars to see what the drop looks like. So far I havent bottomed out and they ride very well. From what I have seen and heard when you throw the pro-kit on it doesn't even look like the car has been lowered. Good luck!

Ya the Pro kit barely lowers the car! Get the Sportline, they lower it more and have better handling characteristics!

VNlilMAN will become famous soon enoughVNlilMAN will become famous soon enough
ya i think its a waste of money to drop it with a prokit(no offense to those who have). i prefer sportlines. price is the same. n goldline.. i heard good things about them but i could get eibachs for the same price a goldines so i'll just stick with eibachs.

I've had both, pro kits ~1.25"
Sportlines ~ 1.5"

I couldn't handle the ride with the sportlines with my daily commute so I changed them.

pro-kit gave me about an 1.25 drop. i love it. it all depends on what you are looking for. i looked at the people who had sportlines and it was to low for me. i'm very happy with my pro-kit.

I dropped my Accord with the Eibach Sportline and it looked sweet. It dropped it about 1.8... I plan on sticking with what I know is good for my 2k1 Civic... Rides nice too, corner's very well!!!!
