lowering question?

Hey guys! Would a Eibach sportline kit make my ride too low for practical driving if I have 18" rims and no body kit? By practical I mean, not turning my wheels at a special angle , just so my car can go up a curb.

you'll be fine. I don't have any problems with my Sportlines and 18's. I don't go up curbs fast but I don't have to take it on weird angles.

Here's a good angle to see the clearance.

True...
Do not worry YOU WILL BE OK!
I have 15" stock rims with VS-1 kit and Eibach Sportline springs... I'm ok... and you with your 18" rims and w/o body kit will be ok too.
