Jeep Lowering Questions

I have been reading all the threads I can find with the search in this section of the forum and really can't find any definitive information on which springs to use get the stance I want. The following thread shows a jeep that has been lowered using the Eibach "pro kit" however the owner states he modified the kit but does not specify how. I have seen other post with Jeeps using the same kit but the stance is still higher than I what I am looking for.

Here's the thread - the lowered stance pictures are what I am looking for. Please point me in the right direction. Coilovers are not out of the question but if I can do it with springs I would prefer that option:
finally dropped my rig!

Some guys modify the bumpstops on the eibachs to reduce bottoming out.

I just installed the Eibach Pro Kit. Got some helpful hints on installing. Worked out great. I did have to tie back the inner plastic wheel cover on the passenger side rear due to clearance with the 315's in the back. No big deal. Ride is much better/tighter; nose doesn't seem to dip as much when breaking hard.

Is there a chance I could get you to post up a picture of your Jeep with these springs? Or email it to mike@ostdyno.com

Thanks!
