    Stock struts don't handle a drop very well. You'll need to consider replacements if you want to lower the car.

    You need to consider matching your spring rates with strut damping. I believe Eibach Pro-kit is considered "OEM Fitment" so it will "work" with stock struts, but IMO it's not ideal. A lowering spring will have a stiffer spring rate to keep you from riding the bump stop, and as such you'll be closing in on an under-damped suspension. Consider a decent set of springs matched with a good set of struts... don't lower just for looks.
