neuspeed race springs, spc camber arms, stock struts / shocks



that prokit is pretty low, cause it looks pretty close to my 2" drop.

looking through this thread seems that more ppl go towards getting the eibach pro kit instead of the sportlines....im guessing for daily driving the pro kit comes out a better investment plus still looks pretty low after letting it settle for a couple of weeks

i want to be certain on a couple of things...with the pro kit is both the front and rear camber kit required or just rear, keep in mind these would be installed on a si coupe, and what brand spc, or skunk2?? ill most likely will be sticking with 17' wheels but might switch to 18s down road depending on how the drop looks

what other brand would be u recommend besides eibach that wont sacrifice the comforts of daily driving??

input would be appreciated and pics will def. help...kthnkx

Might be missing a coil or two, or wrong springs, did you check to make sure everything was legit? Seems to be the consensus here is your car is way too low for Pro-Kits. Didn't mean to sound like an arse, usually just respond and ninja outta here.

I agree, don't mean to get on your case about it.. but that is NOT (as in a HELL NO) on a 1" drop...
good lord I was just about to order the pro-kits.... must rethink decision...

I'm having conversations with Eibach now about special kits for the Hybrid suspension system. I'll keep everyone updated on this.

deffinatley dont need camber arms. its not that major of a drop, and especially if u get 18s, you should be more than fine. i have both and i don't have camber arms at all. been about 8-10k miles now with the prokits and nothing notable with tire wear on my tires. just get an alignment and you will be fine.
