    I've got the Eibach Sportline kit on my VXR and it's spot on.

    Nice and low (more on the front) however...

    If you are after an even drop front to rear, the Jamex ones might be better (40mm all round by the looks of it) whereas the Eibachs lower 50mm on the front and 30mm on the rear.

    Might be worth getting some pics of cars on each?

    Can anyone help out?

    As far as i know, the 50/30 kit would make the car sit level. As the standard suspension is slightly higher at the front. Or that is what i was led to believe.

    Pretty sure someone will correct me shortly.

    I really wanted to order some springs but now thats made me think twice, kyle_sxi (nw/nw ro) recommended the Eibachs but i realised there are cheaper ones and people have sed that the Jamex ones are perfectly good.

    Anyone got any pics or any advice?

    Yes I will, I bought the 30/30 eibach kit and it looks ace, nice and level and with the irmy splitter fitted it sits nicely. I have seen pics of cars on the 50/30 kit that look like they're gonna fall over

    so your sayin go for the Jamex kit? I think i'll get them anyway tbh, mainly because they're cheaper and people have said that they are just as good as Eibach's so....right! im gonna order them now! i'll hopefully have them by monday but i doubt i'll get them fitted for a bit...when i do ill post some piccies up
