Eibach 1" lowering springs

Does anyone have these? Pics? Want to drop an inch, these claim 1.3 want to see how they look. Any help with lowered pics would be great. Hows the ride?

I'm not sure about the Eibach... I just bought Hotchkis 1" front and rear. I was happy with my ride height so the lady at the classic parts store told me I should by 1" drops. She said that should mimic the sag that is in the originals that I had now and give a similar ride height.

She had sold standard height to several people and all came back saying that their cars were like 4X4's.

I am almost done with mine. When I get it back on the ground I will take pics. Hope that helps.

Thanks, I look forward to seeing it. I'm sure they will settle a bit over the first few hundred miles too. I just ordered the eibach 1" drop springs. I'm using isolators and figured worst case I will add a spacer if its too low... will post pics when mines on the ground. Someday lol

I have Hotchkiss 1" drop front springs in mine, and new A/C springs in the rear, I think it's a nice rake.

Burning rubber since 1982!!

AC springs are higher spring rate, but stock height. But my rear end is out of a 66 Chevelle, so narrower and fits the 275 60's great. 15X8s front and rear.

I still can't find any good side pics of a car with these installed... anyone?

Jet, do you have any good side pics of your car with the wheels straight? I'm having a hell of a time deciding whether or not to start out with a spacer or not.
