    lowering and handling trade offs?

    For those who lowered their CTS, what springs did you use? And when turning aggressively, is there rubbing from the wheels? How has the performance changed in general?

    Eibach pro kit. No rubbing (stock wheels). Performance gain was great! Less body roll, a little stiffer ride, and not harsh at all. Not one bad thing I can say from it.

    Edit: I take that back..you just have to watch speed bumps and make sure not to scrape on certain things like drives pulling in/out. But that's all

    Do either of you have the sport package? Does it have a problem with the factory 18in wheels?

    I did coilovers with 20's. Allows you to go at whatever height you want. I lowered it quite a bit and had to roll the fenders. But, you can just lower it to where you want with no problems. Car handles amazing....like stock but tight on the twisties.

    Re: lowering and handling trade offs?

    Are Eibach pro kits one size fit all? Or one size fit none where you have to cut them?

    Are these right?

    Assuming you put in all your car's information, 2007 CTS V6 Sedan, and came up with Eibach Part # 3878.140, you have the right kit. It is a lowering kit, you do not have to cut it.

    If you really want to cut something, cut your factory springs. Better yet, get a set of factory CTS-V springs, and cut a coil off of them.
