You might want to look into drop height and spring rates depending on how low you want of a drop and how soft/firm you want of a ride.

my eibach 1" drop is decent, i can still fit my fat 18s with the 255s in the rear without fender rolling (they stick out like 1.5" past the fender)...

from what i've read, you wouldnt want skunk 2 on stock shocks because they have TOO much of a drop. tein, eibach are great brands, but yeah check out the spring thread it'll give you more info. GL

It all depends on what you want. I use to have Eibach springs and it gave the car a moderate drop and almost like OE feel when driving. Espelir I think is more lower( from what I saw in person) Ride quality I don't know. GL
Eibach, Tein and Espelir are commonly use springs on this board.

Espelir will give you the lowest drop without sacrificing too much ride quality.

I also have espelirs, 13k miles on stock struts, 7k so far on SC. Drops still looks good, other than scraping due to bad roads around my area. I traded my eibach for espelirs an love the new look of espelir. Good luck with purchase

Do espelirs shorten strut life though? How is the ride compared to stock?
