    Pfadt had a great looking set of springs on their ATS, but I don't think they are quite ready for release yet.

    Does any one know what D3 used to lower their ATS? I plan to call them this week to get more info on the mods done to the car in these pictures.

    Re: ATS drop kit!!

    They used coilovers. I spoke with them in Dec and they told me they were in development and would be ready by the end of Feb. When Feb passes they then said end of March. Well where are they? They are also working on a spring set which they said on Instagram would be a 1 inch drop all around but keep saying "soon". 1 inch is not enough on these cars anyway. I need 1.5 rear and 1.5 - 1.7 front on the fronts with 19 in wheels I have. Eibach also has had springs " in development" for over 3 months now ???

    I spoke to D3 and they use a full coil over system it's already available but takes 4 weeks to build and for $3200... I was like WOWSERS!!!!

    Also the problem with eibach is that the drop kit they are developing is for their "performance spring" model which only drops the car about 0.7 to 1.2 max. If your looking for more of a drop you have to get their "sport line springs" which gives you about a 1.4 to about 1.7 drop but those usually take waayyyyy longer to develop. also it looks like they are developing the springs for the 3.6 awd model and I have a 2.0. I don't know if there's a difference in the springs. Does anyone know? If there is I'm screwed

    I have 20's sitting in my garage waiting for a drop kit... I want a drop over 1.5 but at this point I'll take anything over 1. I'm tired of seeing those rims all lonely in the garage

    I had eibach springs on my cobalt, it dropped the car alot but it didn't retain the "Travel" of my stock springs. Each bump felt like C4 going off under the car.
