I would like to know some different opinions on the two different springs. The Hotchkiss looks nice, but I want my front just a little lower than the hotchkiss sit.
I've seen all different opinions searching, but some posts are from 2005. I know Eibach have made some changes since then. That's why I'm making this post.
What are some good shocks besides Blistein? The shocks are high on price and was hoping I don't have to go that route, but I will if I have to. I do plan on getting Zq8 stops too.
Thanks!

Bilsteins are the way to go. Bilstein Shocks, Sachs Shocks and much more: eShocks.com had the best price w/free shipping that I found.
