Update on mods done to our 2006 Solstice. A few months ago we posted the pics of our new wheels and now we have lowered the car. Thought I would show you the end result. The wheels are 20 x 8.5 in the 40 mm offset and we used the Eibach Sportline Lowering Springs. Car actually rides better than before we lowered it. Only have a slight rub when turning the wheels real sharp.

pics are before we had the car aligned. :)

That's a great combination. I too prefer the sportlines and that 40mm offset looks about perfect.

I slightly rub on that weird rear liner indentation but my shocks might actually be a little worn after all these years.
The front end doesn't seem to rub as bad now that we got it aligned. The rear only rubs if we hit a bad dip in the road. We love the way it rides & looks now.

Thanks!!!

I had this same setup with my Red 2.4 and had the same problems. This time when I got my Black GXP, I went with Sprint Line lowering springs. The Eibach Sportline springs look AMAZING, but caused me many problems with tire rubbing and sometimes bottoming out when going over curbs and speed bumps. The Eibach Prokit is allot more street/daily driver friendly. The Sportlines are a more agressive stance made for track use. The best setup is Sportlines in the rear and the ProKit springs in the front. Less problems with the front tires rubbing and less tire ware in the long run. Ask me how I know? :)

There is actually a service bulletin for the 06' to install an extra retainer on the rear liners to prevent the rubbing.
