Go with the Eibach's...lowered 'Bird's look nice. I replaced my Sport's with a set of ST's which have about the same drop as the Eibach's and it made a world of difference. I know a few people that have used the Eibach's on their 'Birds and dozens of people who have used them on various other cars, and everybody seems to like them.

I got the ST springs with KYB Shocks, and Struts, and It was way better than my stock suspension wich was just the regular LX stuff.

lx is night and day in comparison with sport stuff, how do you like the ST and kybs? that seems to be the budget lowered bird setup, i was thinkin about doing it, or going with aftermarket shocks and the sport springs, but with peoples reaction im gonna lower my car

I really like my KYB/ST combo, I've had them for about 9 months. They make a HUGE difference in handling espicially since right before i put those on I went form 205/70 to 235/60. The ride is still pretty good, better than other lowered cars i've been in, body roll, and nose dive is probably on 1/4 of what it was. Hope this helps.
