    I vote for the D3 comp springs since i havent come across detailed reviews on Eibachs or the KW coil overs.

    Are you running spacers in the rear. I'm running 305/30/19 on my stock and they do not push that far out. Looks great

    How would you rate the ride quality of the Eibachs compared to stock? Also, did you get the pro or sports?

    What's a typical install price including alignment for springs? I'm gathering some quotes and want to make sure I'm in the ballpark.

    My guy charged me 1.7 hrs to install rear springs @ $90 per hour ($153). Fronts about 2.0 - 2.5 hours including the bump stop trim, and $75 for a four wheel alignment is pretty typical.

    No spacers, bone stock set up, just lowered on D3 Comps. No squeeking issues so far. Mag ride works perfect with supplied hardware.

    Re: Lowering Springs????'s

    These cars look sick, like the d*vil himself should drive them. I am having the D3's installed this weekend. Question though, the black chrome grills are available from Cadillac for the '13 as an LPO, but how did you guys do the window trims and fender vents in black? I assume the chrome on the trunk is black too? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!!
