I hear good things about eibach, im sure you might be able to find cheaper somewhere else. I personally haven't lowered my vehicle yet but i was looking at these.

yep...read this and then get back to us. Either of the SRT drop springs...IMO...will need a shock/strut replacement. Either Koni's, WK BIlsteins or SRT Bilsteins. If you go with a WK drop spring....eibach or H&R...the stock shocks/struts would be fine...for awhile. Although...IMO...the stock springs/shocks are pretty lame.
