With the right tires...your overall height difference (diameter) won't change from a 18 to a 20.

Hows the ride with the H&R's? Looks low and sexy!

Thanks for the input once againJamie, if you can wait till this summer when Woody_MI organizes the CTS/CTS-V plant tour, I'll be up in Lansing and you can ride in mine to see what you think.

Would you advise against getting them?


For those using EIBACHS how is the ride with those?

I was originally planning on the GC's but with all this talk of clunking, thumping and "fixes" with spacers im not sure I wanna go that route.

I noticed that Eibach springs lower the front a lot more than the rear. I like a nice even drop all around. I think H&R springs would offer the best look.

That would be awsome! Even if I do something before then we could still meet up and chit chat cars for a bit..

Is there a kit that offers a very conservative drop all around like .5"? If so does anyone have pics? All of the pics Ive seen so far seem to be too much for me... I favor a more subtle look. Its crazy how upright these cars are. Sometimes I feel like I could be in Cadillac's midsize SUV ... no kidding.
