Am posting some new pics (the last post was a disaster because of the album host) of the Koni adjustables and Eibach Prokit springs that I got installed last week. The springs drop 1.2" all around. What do you think?

Re: Koni/Eibach installed (pal)

looks great. I like that drop, not too low especially for the roads in nj & pa. I may go with same combo. How much for the install if you dont mind me asking? Thanks. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Koni/Eibach installed (02GTI-VR6)

I have posted a review of the suspension (ride and handling) in the Suspension Tuning forum ... here is a link:

Any more drop and I'd be babying the car around and fearing when I would lose my oilpan ... the roads here are not exactly "carpeted" if you get my drift

Nice, I have the same drop, mine looks lower but it's settled, and I'm on 18s.
My advice: Get H&R 15mm spacers in the rear, 8mm in the front.

lookin good man. You'll be so surprised how flush you'll look with the fenders when you go to a bigger rim even though the dimensions are the same overall. You'll understand what I mean when you hit 17's or 18's.

Looking good,
George

Awesome!
I personally love that drop. Not too high, not too low! Makes the tire fill the wheelwells nicely. And, it looks like you've taken great care of your car--the paint looks excellent. Keep up the good work! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
So, would you recommend the Koni shocks over the Eibach? I was going to do Eibach Pro-Kit all around, but after seeing your drop, I'm thinking about doing the same combo. What do you think?

Re: Koni/Eibach installed (quicksand)

I usually run 15mm spacers in the back ... they are out for the winter. I am planning to get the 8mm spacers for the front especially after H&R came out with the lipped ones similar to the 15mm. May go for a wider rim to get it flush with the fender wall ... am searching

Rich, the drop looks low up front probably because of the weight of the VR6 ... I did not want to risk the 1.5" H&R sports as that may require a new front sway bar and I may be risking oil pan damage. You need to come and drive this setup sometime.
