the only problem i have with lowering springs is that they take away suspension travel. if i was going to lower something i would go with lowering spindles and retain full suspension travel

I didn't use those same ones but the Hotckis brother to them. Left the front a little too low for me and with 235's had some rub when turning in and hitting the hump into a praking lot.

I've been looking at these too. My friend (a professional mechanic)has had really good luck with Eibach springs on a number of cars. He really likes the ride and handling. He's been less than happy when customer use other brands.

I always upgrade my springs on A bodies to the Monte Carlo specs.
I always liked the height and ride.

WOW that was fast, springs arrived today. 241.00 all in + a FREE pair of Eibach mechanic gloves (real nice) + a free Summit hat. I'll try and install this week.

Installed the springs today, it is 1" lower all around at this point. Ride is great, not harsh at all, cornering very stable, I made no changes to the alignment at this point and feel no need for adjustment yet. I'll keep a close eye on tire wear. BTW NO rubbing of the 225/55X16 on Repop Iroc wheels. The lowering is subtle but noticeable.

I think those are the springs I am going to get. Just wondering, what shocks are you running? Also, did you notice any improvement in handling?

Run of the mill Monroe gas shocks up front with Monroe air shocks in the rear at 30# pressure. (up 10# from stock springs.)

Can you post a side view picture of your car with the Eibach springs? I am also interested in these springs. Thanks.
