I've researched them pretty extensively and am not purchasing anything till I see them on more cars as there is so little out there.

I have not found any installs or good data on reasonable coilovers for the Spark, but found at least a couple Spring Companies that say they support the Spark with small drops...

The KSpeed Storm springs for around 340 dollars 30 mm or 40 mm configurations

The B&G Springs around 210 dollars ~1.4 front 1 Rear

TORNADO Springs for 369 Dollars Unknown Drop

I'm not dropping any money until I see more pics of them and reviews of them... and I want to know how far you can actually drop the car as well... 1 inch seems to be too little for the compromised ride and cost.

I thought about the B&G springs. With my 17 inch wheels it should be good. 1 inch in the back would be ok and hope 1.4 in the front won't cause problems. I know right now when my son and wife ride its about 1 inch gap in the back. So I don't know it it would be ok all the way around with the 17's.

I can't find them in the USA... You can order them from Europe though, but shipping will be a monster.

1.4 inches... seems to be about what all the others are running.

that looks just about perfect, as far as cosmetics.

what shock/strut did you pair them with? how is the ride compared to stock?

I don't think they make them for the Spark, but I'm an Eibach fan. I've lowered 4 cars on Eibachs and have never had an issue, and they have always improved handling quite a bit. Does anyone make a STB (strut tower bar) for the spark?

A top of tower brace is going to be difficult because there isn't much room to run it.

Anyone pulled the trigger on B&G yet?

Also the B&G Spark spring set is advertised as fitting the Cruze.. Eibach has Cruze springs. Ergo...

Lastly, anyone have torque settings for the strut cap - mount to body - strut to spindle, etc?

I want a coilover, but not for lowering. If anything I would like it up about 0.5" or 1". I want it for the ride it gives, the stock suspension just sucks on long trips. and dirt roads where I live.

I installed the b&g springs, the front looks great nice and flush 1.4 drop but I did use factory tires on new 15" wheels. The rear was only a 1" drop wish it was 2" to give it a more level drop but it still looks clean.

Now for the ride and handling, it's definitely stiff eliminated a huge amount of body roll great but down side is you can feel all imperfections on the roads
