Anyone have these springs on their Cruze? How do they feel? How do you like them? Please post pics. I am considering getting them for my 2017 Hatchback LT with stock 16" wheels.

I have Eibachs with appropriate struts/shocks on mine. Be prepared to change your driving habits or be ready to do more maintenance...

Dang were the gen 1s lower to begin with? I know you shot that from a works eye and in the grass but it looks like coilovers there, not the eibach which are like a 1-2" drop

To the OP I just got a set of eibach for my 18 hatch w 16" wheels too but probably won't have a chance to put them on for a few weeks. I'll be sure to post pics when I'm finished though

I'm currently waiting for mine to show up. I'll post pictures (hopefully I'll remember) once I install them. I'll also let you know what I think about them.

Can't wait to hear your feedback! Are you using stock struts, or you're upgrading those too?

Stock struts, the springs should work perfectly fine with them. I may upgrade them in the future but for now just throwing the springs on it. I much rather buy a thicker sway bar or something before struts.

GM made them all torque to yield bolts. You can reuse them though. I did when I put the GM kit in and it has been fine.

I will say be careful when using them I had one of them snap on the top of the strut. Also if you go to do it by yourself make sure you get a wiper arm pulley or you'll be SOL

Looks great @Daniskye! Out of curiosity, did you reuse your bolts or replace them? Thanks!

Doesn't the GM kit come w all of the hardware?

That's one thing I was a little annoyed w the Eibach kit. It's just springs and no hardware so I need to price out the nuts and bolts from GM and I'm sure they're overpriced grrr

Just take the nut off and hit the arm a bit at the flex point until it pops off.

Just installed the kit last night. Drives nice so far. Isn't as bad as the previous car I had with lowering springs. I'm running 235/40R-18 for tires to give me a bit more cushion than a 225/40R-18.

I'm going on a far drive this weekend so I'll have a better idea of how it handles and it'll hopefully settle over the weekend then I'll take pictures.
