Default Will SLP Eibach springs w/ a .75" rear drop hurt 60ft times?

I was wondering, because I'd like to lower the rear end a tad to match the HAL's I'm going to put up front and use to lower the front end a bit as well.

I know the springs that drop your car a lot really hinder 60 ft times, but how about a set of SLP Eibachs that only drop the car .75"?

If I were to get these how much of a reduction in 60ft times would I see?

Most hardcore racers will say "yes". However w/ LG Motorsports Lowering springs (dropped the car .75) with stock rear shocks, I was able to cut a 1.57 and 1.59 60fts (with consistent 1.60-1.62's) in a 6 speed car. I was happy with those. Now could I have potentially cut better 60's with a non-lowered suspension? Maybe...maybe not. Since my car was not a full-on race car (and appearance mattered to me), it was irrelevant. I was just happy to prove all the naysayers wrong.

No, it will most likley lower it. The lower your center of gravity, the better!

My 60's were good with Eibach and reg shocks.When I installed the HALS the ride was horrible.No matter what adjustments I did I could not get the ride right on the road.So I switched back to stock springs.

My 60's were horrible with my eibachs, I could squeek into the 1.7's for 60's, that was with the firehawk rims in the front and et streets in the back, with SLP bilsteins and eibachs all around...

Not good for drag racing...I went to HAL's, and my 60's were consistent 1.6's...
