I got a '17 Redline. Anyone know if they are lower from the factory than other Cruzes? I know when pricing out the vehicle online you can opt for a factory lowering kit however I do not believe my car has this. Anyone making springs for the '17 yet?

Thanks

Only difference with redline (aside from visual changes) is that it has rear z-link suspension, which doesn't affect the height....the GM lowering springs will lower your car MAYBE .6 inches....so I'd wait until some more aftermarket stuff comes out....Unless, the suspoension isn't different from gen 1, then you have a plethora of ways to lower it.

U mm mm..... 6 inches?

Wait.... Never mind. Formating made it look like 6 inches not .6.

I also talked to Mike at Eibach. He did say there was a sedan coming in that week for a prototype fit. This was 2 weeks ago.

I recommend getting shocks / struts to go with the springs. I have Bilsteins with Eibachs on my 2014. Without them your risk bottoming out much more often and looking like a ricer bouncing back and forth all the time.

these cars have been out almost 2 years i'm surprised that no one has produced any aftermarket suspension components for them.

Believe it or not; there aren't many places that have 2018 parts listed at all...You still have to search their sites for 2017's.
