I would say Eibach, and other's would say H&R... People bash on Eibach beacuse of there so called "rake" look.. I love em, and been using them for a while now, never experienced (is that how you spell it?) H&R or switched to.. I know for a fact that there are some members here that are running H&R springs (Kidcoastal, I believe) and can chime in and talk about H&R..

i'm getting h&r's installed next tuesday and by all indications from other members here, i shouldn't rub. i'll let you know how it goes. they were supposed to go on tomorrow but i guess the springs were backordered so i have to wait til tuesday.

i have a base 300 so the drop is 1.8 F+R. hopefully it provides an even drop. actually when i measured my ride height right now in terms of fingers in the wheelwell, i can fit 4 fingers easy in the front but only 3 fingers in the rear. i wonder if this is due to my box in the back. i have a 15" JL sub and JL 500/1 in the back, but they don't really weigh all that much. (50 LBS tops, if that) i'll post some pics after the drop, hopefully i'll have my digi-cam by then too.

^^^ do some searches about "eibach springs" and the uneven drop and you'll end up deciding on the H&R's. (at least i think you will)

300CwannaB I actually decided to go with Eibach. Here are my personal reasons.
My friend put the H&R's on and it looks AWESOME! IMO it looks better than eibachs. However, we had to take my C golfing b/c too many of us guys on the golf trip makes his car rub badly on the freeway humps.
I know I wont have that problem with the eibachs. That rake will actually save my tires.
AGAIN.... all my personal opinion as well as thougts on the matter.
it's still my opinion that the H&R looks better.
for what its worth.

I am seriously considering the coil over kit that has been mentioned briefly:

www.kwsuspensions.com

These guys build the systems that are sold through Mopar parts for the Neon and PT Cruiser

they are preparing a set sale for the 300C by the summer I was told when I phoned the company.

I understand it's considerably more money then just going with lowering springs, but I believe the overall ride will be much improved

I like the fact that I can adjust the ride height exactly where I want it as well.

I'll keep you posted when I get them installed.

Check out this link http://www.shorelinemotoring.com/gallery_otherrides.aspx
The first ride is a 300c (magnesum) with H&R and 265/35/22, the sixth 300c (silver)down is my car with the Eibach and 255/30/22. I have absolutely no problems. It's sits a little high in the rear, as been stated. But, I can tell you if you have two rear passengers and the trunk full, you might have an issue. I think with the 255/30/22 and the H&R one might not have any problems, just be sitting real low in the rear.

kidcoastal, quick question about your friend's 300 with the H&R's on. what size tires is he running on his 22's. i don't want to rub, but i love the look and plus i've already ordered the h&r's.

ok, nevermind on the install of the H&R's... i guess they're backordered even further and won't be available for 4-6 weeks. i don't want to wait that long so i think i'm gonna go with eibach's and cut a half coil off of the rear springs.
