we were talking about that at our gathering today, we think that as long as you don't go under an inch and a half then you will be fine, i would ask gtpro guys or one of the other tuners to be exact.
I cannot.. or will not... endorse Eibachs because since they have been installed I have had creaking noises that might or might not be related to the product..
maybe from improper install..
maybe just bacause things are more stiff back there now and need some lube.. but that doesn't make sense...
maybe the strut bearings.. who knows,
also a weeeee bit bouncy which I despise...
The drop is to my liking though.. not too much. The sport mode would be great at the track... so would the tour though. I only use sport for a tight corner... or a perfectly paved twisty road, or for a drag straight run to keep the nose down at shifting. I am not against Eibachs.. but I am not for them either... not until that friggin noise is gone. Then I might put the sticker under the hood.. but not before And frankly.. I don't think it handles any better than the original sport mode.. but it took a while to get mine alligned so I may not have a good comparison memory if you know what I mean.. hope this helps
Not sure what your other options would be while keeping the ECS though
my eibach springs didn't feel much different than my factory springs as far as ride quality in both of the suspension modes. my car look sbetter with them 'though, and it creaks a bit, but fo rsome reason, the creakign wasnt' as bad when I installed the rear tie bar. wierd eh?
What spring rates did you two guys use? That should make a big difference. I find my setup (Ground Control kit with Eibach springs) a little bouncy in Tour mode if the road has bumps or "little mounds". On Sport mode it's great! I have 500 lb/in front and 200 lb/in rear. I have no idea if this is what I should have installed or not. I am not very experienced in suspensions.
I don't think you have a choice with the prokit... at least if you do, I wasn't informed of it. I bounce a lot more in sport on the freeway, so I leave it in tour most of the time.... I hate that bounce... reminds me of rice. *cringe*
ps... Jeff, I didn't think there was ANYTHING to do with these cars you are NOT experienced in
