Saw this craigslist ad:

I have a set of eibach lowering springs that are brand new paid 260 for them they fit 1999 thru 04 asking 100 for them need them gone
Thanks for looking
Emailed him about it and he replyed:

Yes its all for springs and it is a 1.3 drop all around and no box for them i ordered springs for the grand am i had but they sent me grand prix ones and i lost the slip so they been sitting around so the box got ruinded sorry but they are brand new trust me if i had the box i would ask 200 for them they go for 260.00 brand new so this is a deal thanks for looking
So... is there any way to make sure they are for Grand Prix's and NOT a Grand Am?

Hell no. I run Vogtlands.

IIRC, the Eibach's like to ass sag until they fixed them in a later production run. Might want to double check.

if you pull the combos yourself and just have a shop change the springs it shouldnt be too bad.

I have the eibach pro kit... I had a small set of rubber spring blockers in back to fix the ass-sag and the drop looks good overall... you just have to get a GOOD set of struts to match cause GR-2s or stock will get blown/worn FAST

Most shops like us that are familiar with lowering springs and aftermarket struts charge around 45-60 per strut. $400 is most likely the price they threw at you because they have never done them and need to cover there ass if they take 6 hours to do them.

As mentioned with eibachs you will want to get a set of AGXs for a half way decent ride, not OEM replacements.

I'd say if you get new struts just get new tophats as I'm sure they're ripped anyways. Then you can assemble them all by yourself with no special tools needed.

Never will I ever run Eibachs. I was ALMOST tempted right now to buy them, if you weren't, since one of my springs broke in the front, but its such a rough ride. I wont go back to that. I had them on my old Regal and after a year they were 1 inch LOWER than a roughly a month (had to let them settle, first) after I had first put them on. "he lowering springs that keep lowering."
