And with that said, if you do or dont, which springs you using?

Eibachs, cut 4" off the fronts, removed dust covers and cut the bump stops. No noises at all

Does that leave you level or with a rake?

Eibachs FTW, cut fronts 4 to 5" to get slight rake (appx 3/8" lower in front than rear, if you don't cut fronts the rear sits lower and looks droopy) cut front bumps stops, remove dust caps, leave boots on and make sure boot is FULLY seated in the rubber spring perch during install, also make sure the spring ends (top and bottom) are fully against the spring end stops (top in the rubber perch stop and the lower on the steel shock body stop). Then you will be 100% noise free. No mods to the rear springs just drop control arm and drop the springs in.

So it is the same for the coupe then. Like Jwall09 said most threads have been about the sedan. Thanks Larry! I am finally bending a bit and wanting to lower the thing. Gearheads, go figure, we can't leave anything alone! Car goes in this week to get some more painting done and then the performance mods begin finally!
