EBay. They're the same for the 4 and 6 cylinder. Eibach pro kit. Just search g6 lowering springs.

The springs will fit either the 4cyl or 6cyl and either 2door or 4door. Tirerack.com sells H&R Springs and Eibachs.

H&R - Least Low - Best Ride Quality - 1.5"F and 1.3"R drop
Eibach - Medium Low - Still Good Ride Quality - 1.5"F and 1.75"R Rear
SSC/Canuck - Max Low - Still a decent ride - 1.75" F&R Drop

I have the 4 cyl with SSC Springs and It realistically got me 2" lower than stock.
SSC aren't made anymore but they are pretty much the same thing as Canuck motorsport springs, Which I have seen on ebay for a pretty good price.

Other than that you can go with coil overs but that's at least a grand haha

CruisinG6, did you have to mess with the sway bar linkage or put some aftermarket struts on?

In the front yes. You have to pull the entire strut assembly. That means disconnecting the sway bar end link, Brake line clip, pulling it off the nuckle and out of the strut tower. You'll then need a spring compressor tool to replace the springs.

The rears are incredibly easy. One bolt and you can drop the control arm and swap springs.

I left my stock shocks in. Here's a side view to show how low I got: 4Cyl, 17" Steelies, SSC Springs.

Note: The car is parked half in some uneven grass making the front sit a little higher and the rear a lil lower...


And here's one on pavement...

Did you mistakenly swap the springs? If not... it takes some time for the springs to settle. Wait a couple of days and see how it sits.
If it ends w ur same drop ill b happy ur car looks good but if it stays w the way it looks now like a monster truck ill cut em lol i drove it n felt i was driven a monster truck jajajajaja
