Hi Mike LU
Can you suggest which spring I should use for veilside kit?
I am currently having Eibach sport but I think it is too low for the kit. I want to change one.
any suggestion?
Will the progress one be ok?

Thanks

You would scrape even if you go with stock height. Can not be prevented because Veilside bumper stick out so far. What I would suggest is (if you go with cosmetic mods) get 19" rims and use stock springs. If you want lowered look get Hotchikis springs (this drop car alittle) and add anti sway bars (this will bring car up) and if you have 18" rims you will be same height as me, you can take low driveways, steep driveways you still have to take it at an angle. (also drive slow at dips)

Thanks for your information
So if I just keep my Eibach sportline, I will scrape a lot for sure right?
Will I crash my bumper by any chance?

Thanks

My hotchikis drop is around 1.5" and alittle more in the rear. What that will do is angle my front up alittle. With Sportline its even drop front and back and it means your front will be angled down more than me, and Sportline is 2" drop all around so you definately will scrape or should I say snow plow rofl
Neways try not to drop your car just go with bigger rims, it will be safer for you if you have to drop do not drop too much either Hotchikis or Proline springs and go with bigger rims to fill up wheel well area.

Too bad!!
I use 215/35/18 tires which I think even drop a little more than stock height with stock tires.
I am thinking to switch to Progress spring.

wow... Sportline big drop plus low profile tires scraping combo if you ask me... if you go with 215/40/18 it will bring your car up alittle and fill up alittle of the wheel well but will not bring it high enough to not scrape.
