I have seen some using. They are too weak for the all trac and cause an extreme lowering.

I'd suggest B+G which are made in a similar fashion to Eibach but with a better spring rate.

If I remember correctly ground control uses eibach springs, they can custom wind them for you depending on what rates/drop you want. Probably your best option if your looking to have a certain type of ride. I remember someone saying that you can actually call them up and run through want you want in your spring and they can suggest the proper rates and go from there.

hows Ground control really i've been hearing about them, and i would like to just do a mild upgrade like that. Anybody did the same. I thought about that using a new OEM with GControl Coilover springs. Anyone?

As far as struts, if you're looking at GTS ones, KYB makes them for the GTS, and if I remember correctly they were ~ $100 5 yrs ago.
