Kinda makes you appreciate what GM had in mind with the look of the stock production vehicle. Those wheels actually suite the vehicle.

But without the lowering springs, the wheels stand out as too small.

I got 18's and might want to lower as well? Are the Hotchkis as good as Eibachs? Which is cheaper?

How much of a drop did you get with the Hotchkis? Looks like the wheel fits nicely in the well as compared to stock.

The Hotchkis springs are more expensive. The website says 1.5" front and 1.1" rear. Eibachs say 1.2" front and rear. Keep in mind that is for the ones that don't have the sport package.

I got a pretty good deal on the Hotchkis springs, $180 shipped which was better than I could find on the Eibach. The ride quality is surprisingly just about the same, you can tell it's lower and a little bit more firm, but not bouncy or uncomfortable by any means. Advertised drop is 1.5" front and 1.125" rear. I really like how it sits now. Gotta start saving for some nice wheels now.

Looks about the same drop as my Eibach kit. (I think I paid $200 shipped?) I had my 16" wheels on during the winter and they are identical to yours as far as gap goes.

Tint looks nice, too. Can't wait to see what rims you get...


And please don't use your Blackberry 8330m for pics next time!

HA! Yeah, my actual camera needed to be charged so I just used the phone. The rims are going to be a couple months out. Racing season is about to start and I need new slicks for the race car along with a few other things...
