    I went with eibach sport line springs on my 03 rsx type s 
    as with any lowered or already low vehicle, be careful around potholes.
    but beyond that  ride quality is great, they're very comfortable, and handle way better than stock.

    ordered from  speed factor
    shipping was quick, and with the dollar where it's at  they were cheaper than buying online.

      What vehicle will these be for?
      Why do you want lowering springs only? If you are still on stock shocks you will put extra wear on them and will most likely need to upgrade your shocks sooner than later.

        Skunk2 is the same as Eibach IIRC.

        Eibach is pretty stiff, and a lot of people don't really like them from what I've heard.

        I went with Tein S.Tech's due to the positive things I heard about them (and some coercion).

        I'd recommend looking at Tein's over junk2.

        Just my two cents though.

          I have the skunk2 with stock struts on my 05 dc5 .... The ride is ....jarring.  They will be coming off for full coil overs next season.

            I love my eibach sportlines. Not that stiff at all.

              I don't find my eibach springs to be stiff whatsoever.
              10/10 would buy again- but still want to upgrade to coil overs

                Considering you drive a Mazda, and he has an RSX, its not the greatest comparison.

                    "Eibach is pretty stiff"

                    Eibach has A LOT of different springs for A LOT of different applications. For many vehicles they offer two replacement lines, the Sportline and the Pro-Kit, which have different spring rates. There are differences again between vehicle models. In addition to prepackaged kits, you can order custom Eibach springs for your coilovers in 2 inner diameters, 6 lengths, and any spring rate.


                    People basing opinions of an entire spring manufacturer based on one experience on old stock struts: stop, it's pointless. What will determine your ride quality is the spring rate, and the damping. They need to be well matched, otherwise any spring rate can feel like ****. Spring rate determines how much force is needed to move the suspension in that direction, and how far it can go. It is the dampers that will determine how fast that happens, and how fast the spring will be allowed to push back.
