Lowering springs opinions/show pics! **

I'm trying to get springs soon to drop the car, just wanted to hear some opinions as to what i should get. im leaning towards canuck motorsport springs because they offer the best drop but i also dont want any camber issues.

Let me know what you guys have and please provide pics, pros? cons?
lets hear it!

for the CM springs i found the kit for 222$ from their website.

I got a set of SSC Springs from ZZP. They did the trick. got about 1.7-2 inch drop all around. The ride is still really tolerable over bumps. of course it's harsher on the bigger one.
It handles amazingly better, I can take corners quickly now especially with my new tires. It feels solid and planted. I found a lot of reviews saying that these springs have better ride quality then the eibachs. But I cant be sure because i haven't had them. all I know is they lower the from a slight bit more then the eibachs... hardly noticable

Eibach sells a prokit that I found cheaper on tirerack.com
Theres also those CM springs you found.
I got the SSC from ebay from ZZPerformance.


Once installed I got a 4 wheel alignment. The rear wheels have negative camber that can't be corrected. They told me it's only a half a degree out of spec though So wear shouldn't be an issue. I rotate every oil change anyways.

Here are some shots. It's on the stock 17's that are painted









I figured the more pics the better.

I am selling eibach pro-kit springs, but I have Canuck motorsports springs on my GXP with 20" wheels installed on it as well.

If you want a drop with the least amount of camber go with H&R, if you want to meet in the middle go eibach. If you want low you'll have camber go with Canucks.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
It's also my understanding that the SSC springs I have are the same as the Canuck springs.
