i was thinking about getting the eibach 1.5" kit for my car. what would i have to change after i install it? i have the electronic shocks from the factory, would i have to install non electronic shocks for the lower ride height or would they be okay with the 1.5" kit?

Factory ARC shocks will be fine with the Eibach kit. Some say you need shorter sway bar end links. I've never changed mine and they seem to work fine, so I don't know how crucial it is.

Just make sure you get an alignment after installing them.

A 4 wheel alignment will definitely be needed.....

I have them on both of my birds. Havent changed anything on either car. Make sure you get new cups. Alignment is a must, then another one about 3 months after. Be aware that the ride is a bit harsher with these springs.
