What springs

I am going to be installing some 18x9 Front and 18x10 Rear LTW5's soon with 245/40/18 front tires and 285/35/18 rear tires. I am currently considering a few options. I want to eliminate fendergap as much as possible, but not be dumped on the ground. I do not want the rear to be lower than the front (so lower in the front is okay). I also dont want the rear to still be up in the air with the front slammed.

1.) H&R sport springs/Bilstein sport shocks.
2.) Eibach pro system (pro kit springs and pro dampners) w/ supreme power front suspension perches.

I already have coilovers and am tired of them. Looking for a change, something simple, that i dont have to do any adjustment to.

Please post, share pics, or vote in the poll, Thank you.

You did not mention desired ride quality. Reason I went with Eibach Pro Kit springs was because I was looking for not only a lower stance (not slammed) but I wanted to keep the ride OEM "like" so that I could use the car for every day driving.

H&R sports are slightly lower and stiffer than Eibach Pros. Eibach Pros tend to have more of a raked look than H&R's, front lowering perches will make your car looked more raked. It all depends what you want most out of the set-up. Based on your description I would say the H&R set up would probably give you the look your after, but consider pairing with Koni Yellows.

I've been slammed on coilovers and rft's. Either of those options would ride better than that due to the non-rft's i am switching over to with the new wheels!

Bilstein coilovers are awesome, do ett..

otherwise HR with Koni Yellows for handling > comfort

Eibachs with Koni FSDS if comfort > handling
