-2 degree's is a decent starting point. However, These cars need closer to 3 for autocross. I'm currently running -3.2, will be at -3.5 by the first event.

Are you running coil-overs Sam?

My '06 is also my daily driver so I have to keep things dialed down, keep it tolerable. The Eibachs are harsh enough.

Eibachs when matched with a good strut ride pretty good. Coilovers however can ride even better when valved properly. The SHOsource coilover was the best riding suspension I have ever owned for a SHO (Better then any Koni, Tokico, Eibach, Intrax, Moog...etc combo). Nice and firm but far from harsh. The bumps were also very nicely rounded off with no pogo effect. The struts in those coilovers are valved incredibly well.

Find some used Koni's that are blown, Koni will revalve them to YOUR specs. The cost is about 170 per strut and the wait time is pretty long but it's well worth it. (I had them revalve mine to handle a 750lb spring up front).

My Ebachs and KYB are ok and they've held up fine for the past 50k miles. I know about the SHO Source coil overs but that is a lot of money to drop, can't really justify that sort of expense at the moment.
