Anyone know which one I should go with? The intrax specs says it will lower the car atleast 1.8/1.8 or was it 1.8/2.0??

Either way the Intrax spring set was cheaper and lower than the Eibach. I've just never heard on Intrax before.

Anyone know how hard of a job it is? If I take it to a shop how much would i be looking at? If its not too hard maybe me and a friend can tackle the job.

I put some eibach's on mine last december. I LOVE them. Low enough to make a difference, but you dont smack on everything. I highly reccomend them. They handle much better than the stockers I had, with just that and 18's it feels like it's on rails. Call up discount tire direct (tires.com) and talk the guy down. I did that and got it for around 220 new. Don't remember the install cost.

ryan --- I'm from Peoria, IL. Quite a drive from paris but not too bad. Wanna do my springs for some cash? Hehe. I don't think I'll do it myself but wish I could.

Is there anything else I should replace in the meantime? While I'm doing this? Shocks, etc??

thanks for all the suggestions guys. I still don't know which i should go with. hard decision but I think Intrax since its lower than the eibachs.

hey, ive got eibachs, i think their PERECT, never in a million years would i go with anything else. there not too hard to put in if you have any mechanical inclination at all. i did mine myself, took all day but i did it, first time for everything!! i just think it gives you a good stance, nice handling, but not TOO low where your tearing up your underbody driving down the road. your choice tough, remember,....... you get what you pay for!!!!!

I have Eibach springs also. With the right shock they give a very nice ride. Smooth on the straights and tight in the turns.

I have a set of Eibach's for sale if you are still looking for them.

Al_Florida, - I'm still weighing out the options. If I choose Eibach then I'll buy yours for sure.

Right now I'm leaning towards intrax though. They are not cheap ones, about the same prices as the eibachs in fact. I just would like the extra .5in ( 1.8front/2.0 rear )
I've also talked to a few people with Intrax springs and they like'em.

Are you sure you want your car sitting lower in the rear? IMHO, that does not look very good.

its actually 2.0 in the front and around 1.8 in the back ... so the front sits lower
