before i say anything, yes, i did a search, and a lot of the info i found is old and doesnt help me.

i have cut springs on my car, dropped a lil over 2 inches all around, looks great but now i bottom out on potholes and it rides like crap. i want progressive springs that drop it about 1.75 inches all around. the info i found led me to believe that the eibach and H&R springs are both good, but a lot of people seem to have uneven drops with them. which springs would drop it how much i want and what do i need to do to make sure the drop is even?

for the shocks, i wanted to get bilsteins but i think i read that they don't make them anymore...if anyone knows where i can get any please let me know. i want shocks that dont bounce over bumps arent TOO stiff. i dont mind the ride being stiff, anything is probably better than it is now. its gotten to the point where i have to scan the road ahead for potholes and dodge em, im tired of it.

also, i wouldve put this in the suspension area but i know it wont get much attention there. any help is greatly appreciated.

I think that most uneven drops are when the springs are first put on, it takes awhile for them to completely settle. All of the MN12's that I have seen with drops on them look to my untrained eye like they are even

My Eibach's dropped even, 1.5" all around. Eibach actually advertises 1.5" in front and 1.25" in back, but mine dropped even all around. I think Intrax makes the springs with the drop you're looking for, that or Tokico. As for shocks, there is a group purchase going on for the Bilstiens. They are no longer made anymore, but someone convinved them to make a few batches of them and after that's done, you'll be lucky to find them. But actually, the price of front and back bilsteins is about 420. And Koni Adjustables are 460 for front and back, and they are way better.

Koni's are adjustable, and stiffer at the most extreme setting.
