lowering springs for 02 Bug STI

I want to get rid of the arch gap on my 02 STI. I dont want to go down the coilover route as I dont want the ride to be too harsh and keep hearing that they are just too much for our shoddy roads. Also budget is a factor as im getting the bushes changed to Powerflex ones so I dont think I can stump up for coilovers aswell. Been looking at Eibach springs but been told that they do not lower STI models. Does anybody have any advice on choices?

First I heard of that. If you buy lowering springs for an Sti I'd be very surprised if it didn't end up lowered. H&R is another option

Re: lowering springs for 02 Bug STI

On Scoobyworlds site I was looking at the Eibach Pro-kit and they state: "The legendary Eibach Pro- kit sports springs, for a lower, firmer and more involving drive. Set of 4 springs for all* Impreza models 1993-2005, typically lowers cars* by around 25-30mm. Complete with full manufacturers warranty. TUV approved.
* Will fit STI models up to 2004 (not 2005 on) but not approved for this application. Does not lower STI models".

Has anybody who has the same model as me had any experience using lowering springs, and could give a bit of advice as to how they found them. Did they do a good job of getting rid of most of that cavernous like gap between wheel and arch, especially at the front. I was also considering Tein S tech as well.
