Anyone want to trade lowering springs?

I have the kappasphere springs and they dont give the car as much of a "drop" that i would like and i dont have the money for coilovers. The ebiach sportlines give the car a lower drop so thats what im particulary looking for, I also have a set of the stock springs if anyone wants them!

Can you post pictures of your car (side)? also can you measure the distance from center wheel to fender (front and back)? I want to lower it but not too much.

Can you send me the price in my inbox? thx.

I had the sportlines and got rid of them. They were too low and the rear springs were too soft. After the 3rd time I banged the muffler on the ground, I took them off.

Our cars are setup with Stiffer springs in the rear . Eibach does not understand that and reversed it making the front stiffer.

They do this because they incorrectly assume the front of the car weighs more due to the engine.

After speaking with them I also realized how stupid they are when the guy on the phone tried to tell me that the solstice has a completely different suspension.

I'd love to lower mine but as I pulled into Zaxbys today in front of oncoming traffic and had to slow down and cut in at an angle, I reminded myself it may not be a good idea.

And I didn't cut my STOCK Springs, I'm not that dumb....I cut the Kappashpere Springs because once again I wasn't satisfied with the drop in the rear.
