Default Eibachs And Factory Tires

So I am looking to drop my 07 maxima SE with eibach springs. I used them on my 300C and liked them so I figured I would stick with them. For now, I am keeping the stock 18's until the tires wear out and then I will go to staggered 19's or 20's. I have seen a few maximas on here with stock wheels and eibachs and they look great. As far as I could see most guys and gals took the pics right when it was done, which is understandable. Are their pics anywhere to show the drop on stock 18's after all is settled? Or can some of you guys that are set up like this post a recent shot of your Maxima? I just don't want the tires to be in the wheel well. I want to lose the gap but not tuck them.
Thanks for helping out a newb.

No fear, Eibachs sit the highest in front. I've had them and got rid of them a month later. They ride rough, don't drop the front enough and gives the impression that the rear is sagging. I always liked Eibach but did not like them on teh Maxima at all. Progress is the way to go and this is my ride with 18s and Progress and KYB GR-2 struts/shocks. Im not trying to discourage you just giving you some facts before hand and hope it helps you decide better.

Default Re: Eibachs And Factory Tires

Thanks for the pics and info. I do like the stance of the Progress springs better than the Eibachs, atleast in the few examples above.. I dont like it when the rear appears to be lower than the front even though I know they are probably level..

With the Progress springs, do I need the front alignment kit?
Thanks

I can get you some pics of Teins here soon. I also decided against the Eibachs after seeing pics of them settled. The rear just looks saggy. Progress have some good pics to show for so also a good option. I don't believe you need the front alignment kit with Progress.

Default Re: Eibachs And Factory Tires

I switched from Progess (my first springs installed) to Teins a couple of years ago. I'm still very happy with them.

My experience was that over time the ride became harsh and they started to sag in the front too much for me. I think Teins are closer to Eibachs than they are to Progress springs. Progress seem to be a bit more sport oriented. If I were going to do Auto-Cross and I had to pick betweens Teins and Progress, then I would go with Progress.

No alignment kit needed for either of them. Stock strut/shocks

I saw them and they are very nice. I had similar wheels on my last car. This time I want to go with more of a flat faced concave style wheel.
