I put my new springs on yesterday and I love them. Rides great and leaves me just enough room for ground fx. Dropped a little more than 1.75.
Side note: got a new stripe(I want to be just like OrangeCrush when I grow up ;) )

Looks great man. Lowered Darts look amazing. How's the ride with the Eibach? I've never been a fan of them, they always seem to ride rough.

I felt the Same way. Only had the pro line before and hated the feel. I had ordered the h&s springs but couldn't wait any longer. Thought I would give the sport line a try. Feels great. Not hard at all.

Looks awesome! You honestly don't notice any "roughness" in your ride? I've always been weary of doing just springs rather than the whole coilover setup for this reason. Also if you don't mind how much did these run you?

thats where I bought mine. Tirerack.com had them cheaper by 10 bucks but didnt have them in stock, plus I already had H&R spring on pre-order from TH so they kept my money and changed the order. I hear ya about the rough ride. I had the proline on my scion (shortly) and hated them. For only $238.00 I took a chance because it had the drop I wanted. My wife didnt even notice any rougher of a ride. I call that a win!
I think this is the first time my impatients really paid off. Any longer with my car that high, I would have had to paint it camo and put a Get-R-Done sticker on the back:)

Looks sweet and down. The stipe looks awesome too. Was there any issue with caster, camber or allignment? When you say you want a swaybar, are you feeling some body roll in the corners that you want to take care of? Again it looks ffff-in great man.

There was a problem with the wheel alignment. Took my car to Les Schwab and they told me they could not do the alignment. They needed some special tool for the front and the back was missing a nut that lets you adjust the rear camber. I have an appointment on Friday (July 5) at the dealer to get it done. As for the sway bars, I just wanted it to corner more like my Mini. It will never happen but its worth a shot. :D

Its been a while since I looked at Eibach springs. Was goint to put them on my 02 Neon. I thought the Proline was less drop than the Sportline? I know that sounds backward but thats the way I remember it. So I was surprized when you said you felt a harsher ride from the Proline. Do you think there is still room to run 18in wheels with the 1.75in drop? I have the same wheels as you, just haven't painted them yet. I was going to wait til the tires wore out and then go with an 18in package.

I don't think the Dart will corner like a gocart but we can look cool trying.

I have been trying to find 19"s that I like but that 5x110 is not leaving me with much to chose from. Tire guys told me they would fit fine. Only thing I don't know about is a body kit. Might be too low. Never thought that would come out of my mouth:)

As long as you don't go for no profile rubberbands the 19s will lift you back up a little. I think I will stick with some nice 18s with a little bit lower profile to offset the bigger wheel diameter. I need to learn where the front of my car is. I keep catching those little flaps infront of the front tires on parking curbs.

I noticed those flaps infront of the rear wheels too. If I had to throw out a guess I would say they were for reducing spay in wet driving conditions. Dodge should have a "What were you thinking?" Page on thier site so we could ask.

From what I have heard they are for better airflow, cuts down the drag around the tires

Don't know how much longer they will hang in there. They scrape everywhere :(. But looks good.

I'm with you. How do the reduce drag if they are dragging on everything:D. I think I might take a hot knife to them.
