I have a Radiant Silver CTS with an upgraded grill. I love the car, however, it sits way to high for me. I used to have a G37 coupe and I'm used to having a lower center of gravity when I drive.
I'm looking at getting a set of eibach springs to lower it about 1 inch on the stock rims. Is there anything else I need to think about besides the springs and installation? The dealer told me that as long as its not too low, it will not void the warranty (but define too low lol).
Any pics with eibachs and stock/aftermarket rims would be great.
You might want to check out D3's coilovers. They look pretty nice and you can adjust the height to your liking. I would be careful, however, the front end on the car is really low at the stock height. You'll have to be extra careful when parking, etc, if you lower it very much at all...
JCruzMovement I think the eibachs spring are great. I've had them on my car for about 5 months now. The height isn't too low. I don't have any problems with my car getting on the car lift or floor jacks. But I do wish the the front is a bit lower. Eibachs spring lower the front at 0.8 inch and the rear at 1 inch.
If you are going to get lowering spring, You have to make sure you have either the FE1 or FE2 shock. If you have the FE3 shock, you will have to replace the rear with the FE2 shock because FE3 shock are self leveling so it won't lower. Oh and if you lower your CTS watch out for those parking spaces with those tire stoppers, I don't know what they are called, because the lower lip will touch those cement blocks.

Re: Cts lowering question
i had the Eibach's on my 08. I was very pleased with them and the way they felt and looked on the vehicle. I too just wish the front was a tad lower than it was. The front sat just a little higher with the Eibach's (at least when I had the stock 17's on my 08). I have been debating getting the Eibach's and putting them on my 09 with the stock 18's, but don't know if I feel like spending the money again to buy them and install them (the 08 was a lemon and GM bought it back, stupid me left the Eibach's still on when traded in for 09). Anyway, I think i purchased my Eibach's about a year ago for $250 and install was just over $500 i believe. Hope that helps and best of luck!
