They are the same springs as the cup pack(eibach), if you want any different you'd have to go down the coilover route

so if i do go ahead with the springs does it sit lower than the cup? or are thay the same?
if you got one or getting one with a cup pack you cant lower it matey, as the springs from k-tec will only fit a full fat 225 to lower it to a cup ride height.

so in short you can not lower a cup any lower.
you can lower a cup lower. fit coilovers for a start
