Hello all.
I want to lower my stock fiero to make it look better when i put 17"rims and tires on it. With the 1" drop from eibach does this look good with 17"s and also allows you to put it on a lift if service needs done? I am lucky enough that i have a built in lift at my garage. Please all comments are greatly appreciated!

You should probably use the search function, you will find soooo much info on lowering springs its not even funny. I recently searched this topic and came up with like 64 pages or relevant topics and then ran another search about eibach or something and had another good amount of pages to look through. I don't want to sound like a jerk here or anything but i have noticed that people really don't reply much to lowering and eibach threads anymore because i posted one asking some of questions that i had and didn't get any replies. Good luck.

Coincidentally, my Fiero has Eibach springs and 17" wheels. I have about 4" of ground clearance, for the most part.

zmcdonal - I did use the search function. I figured just asking for pictures pertaining to one topic would be easier than searching through 70 pages to find them...

Thanks guys for the posts. Anyone else got more pics of 1" Eibach springs?

I just thought i would mention it, thought maybe you could find your answer quicker instead of fishing for pics from select people that read the thread. Sorry if i sounded like a jerk when i suggested searching earlier, thats not what i intended. I was just judging from past experience when i posted about lowering questions and Eibach stuff, it doesn't seem like threads like these usually get many replies. I looked through the 70 so pages and then another 50 or so when i reworded my search and most of those threads didn't get too many replies. Unfortunately after my extensive searching i cant remember which ones had the most pics and info to help you out. But you may want to search for yellowstones car cause i think he is running 17's with Eibach's and Koni's, so that may give you a good idea.

zmcdonal its no problem. I appreciate you bringing it to my attention. My other main concern with lowering is am i going to be able to get it on a lift? A lift as in a garage piston in ground lift?

depends on the lift.. at school, my car fits on only our blue lifts, which are a touch lower than our red ones..

the rear is the only part tho.. what i do is pull the car up, position front arms, then use a hand jack under the cradle to lifer her up just about an inch or 2... then position rear arms.. works fine..
