Default Pic Request: GR-2s and Eibach Lowering Springs on a BD

I've searched and searched and can't find a pic of this setup.

I'm looking into new suspension, but I don't want to drop my car too low, and the H&Rs look too low for me.

Thanks for any help

I would also love to see such a photo...

Does anyone have a good source for Eibach lowering springs for a BD/BG/BK series Legacy ?
My understanding is that there are so few of these cars that Eibach discontinued them and instead focused on the WRX models.

There are tons of pics...but no point because the springs are discontinued.

You are better off searching for whiteline and h&r springs

Eibach discontinued production.
H&R have changed their part#'s.
Whiteline and King Springs still have tons of inventory, but are harder to get.
RS*R are JDM springs and have a similar drop to H&Rs...low.

check out the threads with Plays_with_toys...he has a BK wagon lowered on BD Eibach springs. It looks good.

I'll be installing a set of Bilstein HD + Whiteline control springs in the next month - I've got a BH, though, so it might not help. For my vehicle, WL says their springs should give a 25 mm (1") drop. We shall see . . .

Pink springs from Japanparts.com are another alternative. I have them on my 97 wagon.

Well that sucks about the eibachs.

How do the whitelines compare to the H&Rs?

SubSpeedGuy, thats exactly how I want my car to sit, got any more pics of that? I can't tell if its the shadow or not, it almost looks like it has a saggy butt.

I had bought some "KYB's" from him only to receive them and find out they're not even KYB's. I was wondering if you had any info that would help me out. I am actually part of the Cadillac forums. I have a CTS...you can check out the ride at: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2602477

I really appreciate any help with this issue. I saw that you had a similar issue witht this same clown. I'd love to kick his @#* for taking advantage of people. If you can, e-mail me at ianalli@hotmail.com and it'll be easier to communicate this way. If any of you other guys are reading this, do not buy from this eBay seller (JDMWERKS). He's a scammer....I'm sure he's scammed multiple people and they don't even know it. That really sucks!
