I believe owners here mainly have Eibach and H&R. There are some other ones out there on eBay, but I'm not sure who actually owns them. I have H&Rs on mine for almost 3 yrs now. I think its a 1.4" drop up front and 1.2" for the rear. Feels just right. I think it was around $250... but if you're in the FL area, you might want to look into coilovers. Those were my first choice but those tend to seize up in the salt belt.

I just recently installed gabriel ultra shocks (from autoanything.com) and h&r lowering springs and I am very happy with the outcome. H&r's are cheaper and from what I hear lower more. But it's personal preference. Both are very nice and you'll be happy either way.

did u install the adjustable ball joints or anything to correct camber? or is the drop not low enuf to have to get these things?
I went with the eibach as the palce i was looking at didnt have the h&r in stock and im also mainly worried about the drop being too low, so that i would have to correct for camber. Or else tires will get chewed up. Since I knw the h&r say the have a lower drop than the eibachs.
Im kinda guessing after installin eibachs the car will still sit the same or higher than now, since these springs are over 100K. But we'll see

No you won't have to be worried about it being to low at all. I didn't install anything camber wise and I dont think I will have to. I'm just gonna take it and have it aligned that all. Even after the install my tires were pretty straight and even so it would be a small alignment. Yeah my springs and shocks were at 104xxx so decided I wanted a lower sporty look as well as other perks to a lower car.
