wouldn't doing it right imply coilovers rather than springs?

what's the actual difference in drop between eibach's and the kw sleeve kit. I would think actual ride stiffness would be similar...

Just do Eibach if you're doing springs, or Ground Control if you want something more coil conversion track oriented. KW IMO is pretty expensive for what you get.

The Eibach Pro-Kit is tested and designed with the factory dampers. If you don't plan on getting a full coilover kit do the Eibach springs.

I have the KW V3 and love the handling. I've never driven a lowered vehicle. Read all the forums and decided I wanted to do it right the first time. Springs you are stuck with the drop height. I can adjust the height and stiffness.
