    Lots of folks have done the install. Really helps with looks by the pictures they took. Look around.

    Re: Lowering Kit

    Well, I would like to see them as well. However, I am more interested in the changes made to the handling, control, and body roll. Compared to the OEM springs, what difference in the general ride aspects. And, since we now know that the CTS-V sway bars will fit, are you planning on changing these as well? I can understand that the appearance is improved, but what are the functional improvements? Thanks...

    Would the V sway bar fit on an awd coupe?

    I have read on random sites that it decreases body roll, rear squat, and helps with cornering. But I don't know how it affects comfort, and just daily driving.

    Re: Lowering Kit

    You would think stiffer springs=harder ride. Is my math wrong?

    Since you don't ride in the back seat then there's no problem!

    Re: Lowering Kit

    Eibach Kit installed on my 14 Coupe I love the stance and Handling… I did Notice even on 40 series tires that you definitely feel the harsher Bumps…. I just stay of certain areas of I-95
    all in all I Love the setup.. Lower C O G, less roll, better response.. and Im sure that will only improve with V- Sway bars… Just my .02
