Hi guys, i'v got a 2010 1.6 Cruze LS and i was thinking of lowering her by 40Mil on some eibach springs. The issue I have, is that I do alot of long distance driving so comfort is critical. I was wondering if lowering it by this much would recudce the ride quality substantially.

I had coilovers on my previous car and it was much better in corners, but appauling for carrying passengers and keeping my nerves happy on long drives.

On a side note, I'm also planning on getting some 18" VXR 'snowflake' style alloys to go on, to fill the arches and make it look 100x better than the standard 16" ones that are currently rolling on.

Cheers Jordan

The North American ECO model and the RS package are dropped by that amount relative to the other North American Cruzen. It really makes a huge difference in how you perceive the road.

Was it difficult? i'v fitted coilovers to cars myself but I feel that just changing the springs may require a bit more effort
If you've never used a spring compressor before then it could be difficult but ut took me about 30-45 minutes

I'll probably take it to my local garage and get them to fit them, they have all that stuff and give me decent discounts for labour and parts. Chevrolet wanted to charge me £170 for new rear brake pads fitted as they were almost on metal last week. For £170 i got front disks and pads and rear pads fitted at my local place. Shouldn't take much more than an hour to do all 4 with the right tools?
