Question Eibach or Bwoody (1in front 1.3in rear) ?????

guys Im about to buy a set of lowering springs, its time. the question is which set. either the pro kit from eibach or the newer bwoody 2.0s wich only lower the rear 1.3 inches instead of the 1.7 so it keeps the stock forward slant, which i still want. I hear the eibachs tend to be a softer spring rate than stock and there for people have suggested bwoody as the better option, which are also a tad more money, there are some eibachs on ebay for around 260. give me your opinions guys, ill appreciate the help!!

Our SRT has the Road Magnet (same as BWoody) 1.7's on it and I don't like the stance. It rides really harsh as well, but we are still running the stock Goodyears. I'm looking into the H&R's even though they aren't specifically for the SRT8 b/c they are supposed to ride like stock and still drop it about 1/2".

If you've got somewhat smooth roads I'd go with Bwoody. If you've got shitty roads with construction going on for a decade like we do in NOVA I'd do eibachs.

get the 1.3" I had them on my 08 and they were perfect. I actually got close to a 1.5" drop out of the rear. never bottomed out and still had about 1/2" difference from front to rear which is what I wanted to keep
