The Eibach Pro-System for the B5 V6 sedan looks great. I had it on my 99 V6 Tip and it looked great. A Neuspeed/Bilstein is a little softer and will drop it a bit lower as well. My Eibachs were about a 1.5-ish inch drop. Neuspeeds will go another .25 inch or so lower.

1BE gives only about a 1/4" drop. Ride and handling are great. I use 17's.

What kind of B5 is this on? I thought the 1BE drop was more like 3/4" and then it settles down closer to an inch.
