Default advice on lowering??

im going to lower my aurora in about 3-4 weeks. ive already picked up the lowering springs (very very hard to find, could only find them used!). there eibachs, should drop it 1.4 in front, 1.2 in back i believe. anyways......i don't know if i plan on keeping my car for very long, so i don't want to drop a whole bunch of $$$ into it, may even sell it this fall for a 97-99 ssei, so i might just re-sell the springs if thats what i decide to do.

is it a bad idea to keep the original struts?

how much should it cost about to have them installed? not sure if id want to attempt this myself to save a few $$

any input?

thanks

For sure keep your old parts if there worth keeping.
Your going to need a camber kit at least if your droping below 1". If your not sure where to start its better to get a shop to do it, lots of saftey concerns, but you can do this in a weekend with hand tools and jack stands. Your going to need an alignment after you drop it too.
