Default Anyone riding on stock shocks with springs?

Planning to get some Eibachs this weekend, I'm not going to change the shocks. I just want to drop it for right now and upgrade to a full Tein suspension set up in when I have more money. If you guys do not recommend Eibach, what do you guys have on your car? Also what are the specs for a nice drop that flushes out the gaps? I want it to be nice and low, but not make it uncomfortable for daily driving.

I also have 17 inch rims sitting at home, and I am going to put them on soon, will this have a effect on my stock rims? Are the 17 inchers going to make my car higher or lower?

i don't understand about how your 17's are going to affect your stock rims????

going with bigger rims is NOT going to affect the height of the car...lowering does however, and lowering also reduces the wheel gap. I have tein's h-techs..and i like them...won't lower it as low as some others, but the ride is not as stiff as tein's s-tech.

I think what you mean is ride height, not having an effect on the stock rims. Get out a calculator and check. I wouldn't worry about ride height so much on the wheels as I would rolling diameter. If you change that radically, your gear ratio effectively changes along with a couple of other things like rotational inertia (weight) and accuracy of your speedometer.
