H&R cup kit. Eibach pro kit.

Both are very good, but I think the drop might get you into some clearance issues?

Tirerack has the H&R cup kit. Springs and shocks. I think it's like 600 though.

Not stealing your thread, but have another question to add. I noticed this oast Saturday that my left front is about a half inch taller than my right front. It's not noticable but I measured and can see a difference in the height between the tire and fender. What could be causing this? Thanks.

I checked out your pics. The angle of your pics wasn't too good to judge the tire/wheel well gap. You're 18's look good to me. Maybe the front needs lowering.
You might have clearance problems. Just my 2c.

the bavauto springs are actually quite good IMO. im runnin 17x8.5 with 235/40 rubber with it lowered. i was worried about clearance problems, but everything does fit beautifully.

maybe the top of the spring shifted and isnt sitting quite right. take a look and see if it lines up
