Eibach Pro Kit

Thoughts on the Eibach Pro Kit? My goal is to eliminate some of the wheel gap without sacrificing too much of the handling feel. I might go to coilovers in the future but I'd like to see if it's possible to slightly lower the car with just springs while not trashing the ride.

That's the same kit I'm considering, but I'm concerned that it may not lower it enough. I also don't want the ride to be too harsh, since this is my dd.

i don't understand why the desire for any lowering.

the FRS/BRZ already has one of the lowest centers of gravity of any vehicle.

You don't understand? Well for most, it's mainly for aesthetic purposes, as the wheel gap is very large on the stock suspension. Without sacrificing too much ride quality, springs like those offered from RCE should combine the best of both worlds: A little drop for the eyes and a little more performance in the corners.
