i have a 89 cavalier z and i lowered it with the eibach lowering kit and i still have a ugly wheel gap. i was wondering if there is any way i could lower it another .75 in the front? Does anyone have any ideas? i still have the stock struts. would it go lower if i put different struts on?

Probably wouldn't go much lower, if at all with different struts.

There is really nothing you can safely do with those springs to get it lower. You could cut the springs, but I sure wouldn't want to do that to a brand new set, and it can be dangerous and cause a bad ride. You could also use something called "shock locks", which is a bracket that you bolt on to two of the coils and it compresses them together. These have a tendency to move around and fall off if they aren't on good and tight, though. Dunno what else to tell ya...
