Which lowers less - Eibach/Koni/H&R

Which set of springs would lower my Viggen the least amount? I am interested in the Koni package...but I am worried that it will be too low to get in/out of my driveway with out dragging (if someone lives by Arlignton, MA and would be willing to drive over to test...I could throw you some cash for gas).

How low would the front be after the various springs vs stock?

Thanks in advance,

-Eric

I believe the Koni's would be the best bet on lowering the least.


I know that my SE HOT was not as low as a viggen and I scraped in places stock and once I did the Koni's it did make happen a little more often.

I thought you had the regular Eibach... not the Eibach Pro-kit.

there is the sportlines and the pro kit. the pro kit drops the least and is more the daily driver choice. i had the sportlines on my old car car bottomed out alot but it was 3" or so off the ground. the ride quality was still pretty good though. i would say go for the eibachs.

The Eibach pro springs lower the least, next comes the Koni springs and the lowest drop will be with the H&R.
I went with the Eibach's myself....

H&R lowered my 9000 quite a bit. Sometimes getting out of gas stations will need a little thought. But I dont bottom out on pot holes or speedbumps or anything like that.
