I finally narrowed down the springs that I want for my 08 CSM: Eibach Sportlines. They give you a really nice drop. 1.2"F, 2.2" Back. It's about a 2-finger wheel gap in the front and the back. So that's what I'd recommend for you.

I've heard the quality is really good with the Eibachs.

Here's a better price for you on springs and sway kits:
http://www.tirerack.com/suspension/S...lar=&brand=all

I thought about ordering the sways and springs for Eibach sportlines, but I didn't want to spend the dough, considering I'm putting some extra dough into wheels. I'll ride with springs for now, then I'll get a sway bar in the future.

Nice looking wheels on the RS 6.0, but stay away from curbs with those protruding spokes.

Yeah, I'm way paranoid with these. I always end up parking at least 3ft from the curb.
