Ive heard they lower a car by about an inch, just curious what it looks like with 215/45r17s (225/45r17s would be great).

Thanks

Sorry no pictures. But yes, spring mount drops a little. About 10 or 15mm. I think.
Is that in addition to the ~1.0 inch from just the pro kit springs? Word on the forums is that Bilstein HD + Eibach prokit drops 1.25-1.5 inches. Can you confirm? Did you have issues with front vs rear drop? There's a couple threads where people are pissed that the rake got worse (consensus is improper loading before tightening that caused it).

Yes it is would be about 1.25 drop. Yes the rake does seem to be worse. But some would use the lowering rear control arm with it. To even it more out.
