    If your dampers are in good condition AND you're not trying to alter the handling, then retain your present dampers and just fit lowering springs.

    If your dampers are well worn you'll get too much bottoming-out so you'd be fitting a full kit.

    hmmm, i'm not too sure that's good advise...
    on the standard dampers the ride would be quite jaring and it would kill the handling. the new springs will almost certainly be harder then the old ones so you'll need dampers that are designed to be that little bit rougher.

    Yep wrigth but the handling will be altered,as the springs will be harder to compress

    Yes it is good advice it all depends on the springs that the person buys and the drop they intend doing Eibach springs have been designed to work with the standard dampers
