Eibach Pro Kit & Sportlines?

Does anybody know if it is possible to have pro-kit springs installed in the rear and sportlines
on the front. The reason i'm asking is that I've got some weight in the trunk and the gap in
the rear is a little less than the front and I don't like the look. If so, can you buy a pair of springs
from Eibach instead of the set of 4?[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG]

What you can you is get the sportlines and get koni shocks/struts. With the konis you can raise your rear 0.5 and you won't have to worry about the rear being lower than the front.

If you are having a real problem with ride height, get coilovers. Otherwise pick a kit that has the height you desire. Mixing a set of rear coils and a set of front coils is pretty dangerous. The engineers design the spring rates to work together on the car so you have predictable operation. Mixing and matching coils will throw off the balance and could even promote a serious case of understeer/oversteer.

I doubt any major spring company would promote or even allow this mix and match idea. That is the whole idea behind coilovers. Also, Eibach has some pretty good info on thier website.
