Lowering springs are in

I have been talking about putting 300M special struts and Eibach spring on my car. Well after staging all the parts I finally did it today. I have taken a couple of pics which show the differnce between stock and the Eibach's. I have also included a side by shot comparing mine to my stock ES w/17's. Since both cars have the same size tires it should be a fairly accurate comparision. The change in handing is dramatic but the job was a pain!






Drove the car over the weekend and what a differnce, can't wait to get it aligned so I can push it more.
Added pics of the car lowered:

The ride is firmer but not harsh, wish I had done this a long time ago.

I find my ride is a BIT annoying at times with the H&R's.

I love your ride BTW ;)

Personally, my camber DOES look slightly off..........but the wheels WERE aligned after the car sat for the winter. I can see your camber looks similar to mine.

You want harsh try air bags lowered all the way. (running over a dime, would be jarring). or Intrax is a lot worse, but the car corners like a dream. I have H&R's for daily driving. shows the air bags go on.

The H&R Springs can be a little rough, but I like it rough.

My alignment seems to be off. I did get it aligned previously, but now my steering wheel is slightly cocked to the left. I swear I can see the passenger side wheel a little slanted.

I need to find a good place that does alignments on lowered cars. I don't completely trust the chain stores such as Belle Tire. Although they did a decent job the first time.

I have not checked the camber yet since I finished the project Saturday at 5:30 an climbed on a plane at 8:00 a.m. this Morning to Dallas. Should have done when I get back this weekend. I looked at H&R but after reading the posts on the ride quality, I opted for the Eibachs..time will tell if that was the right decision.
