I have stock shocks and struts, with eibach sportline springs, the car looks very nice with the drop. But it ruins suspension, its like having no suspension, everytime I'm going over train tracks I gotta slow down to like 20mph. And any little pot hole and it will bottom out... It's quite annoying to tell you the truth... You will feel every single bump or imperfection on the road.

I second this. When I had sportlines I would bottom out quite often as well, I even pressed it hard enough to knock my alignment out of whack a few times. They'll also blow struts in no time (about 20k for me).

Hey guys, looking for a small drop maybe 1 to 1.5 inches and higher rates than stock so it won't bottom out as much, I was looking on here and the Tanabe seems to have higher rates and not a lot of a drop? Is that correct? I noticed that the "softer" one has more drop but the harder one is less? how are they on KYB's?
