I lowered mine 4 days ago. (Eibach Pro-Kit) Extremely happy with it. Height is perfect on both sides. I didn't need a panhard adjustment as both rear wheels are dead on center. Getting some 275 rubber in the back in a few weeks. Anyone using spacers to bring the wheels out a little more?

I ordered a set, and they came in yesterday. Very well packaged (not that they're fragile), and I can't wait to get them on. Can't use the hobby shop this weekend here in Norfolk thanks to Operation Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon... *sigh*

Can the springs be installed then wait two weeks for the springs to settle then install an adjustible panhardbar if needed and finally get the alignment?

I'm wondering also if it's worth it to just put on an adjustable panhard bar while everything is apart or should I wait and see if its even required afterwards?

I've been told to expect to do the alignment after a couple weeks of settle time.

I got mine installed today. Springs only no struts no panhard. I measured (roughly) from the top outer tire wall and passenger side is about 3/4" inside the top of the fender well and the driver side is about 1/4" inside. Is that acceptable? The ride home felt factory just a bit tighter. I love the look to.

Install the panhard and the same time. It's super easy since u already have everything out of the way.

IDK if someone answered your question yet, but:

Stock Spring Rates:
F- 122 lbs
R- 154 lbs

Brembo:
F- 131lbs
R- 167lbs

Pro Kit:
F- 460-570 lbs
R- 200-250 lbs

Sorry about the ambiguous Pro Kit Rates, but you can see they are still considerably firmer.

That can't possibly be right. The Pro-Kits are four times stiffer than the Brembo springs in the front? I'm gonna call BS on that.

Not certain where your numbers come from, but this is incorrect.

Just ordered mine too after seeing pictures of these on everyone's car. I was planning on doing springs, lcas, ucas, panhard, and shocks/struts. Gotta start somewhere, and half off is great! Good looking out everyone

Well mine came in on Thursday and I did the install this morning.
Start to finish just a shade under three hours. Actual working time around two hours and fifteen minutes.
I'm hopeful that this two week settling time I keep reading about actually does something as the initial drop is about 1/2 inch in the rear and about 1/4 in the front. I was looking for a bit more initial drop that that but I guess time will tell.

Barton shifter and bracket. Gt 500 axlebacks. Eibach pro springs. Redline tuning hood shocks.

Give it time, and drive it easy. Mines starting to look really good, and the ride quality did not take near the hit I thought it would. Looking at the specs, the rear is initially softer than stock thanks to the progressive design.

I was skeptical at first when I put the car back on the ground. but they truly do settle a lot. you will be pleased with the end result.
