Is there anything wrong with this setup? I currently have the GR2's w/ Eibach Sporlines. I really like the way it looks right now. Will this work ok for a while on my street car (I've had em on for about a year so far)?
It will probably work.

But, the sportline springs lower the car too much. The reason it's too much is because B13s and B14s have very little suspension travel. So when you lower them 2.25" you are almost on the bump stops. This usually kills struts pretty quickly.

AGXs are much better, but with Sportlines you'll kill those fairly quick as well.

I thought the Eibach Sportlines were a 1.6" F/1.2" R drop? And, I currently have the sportlines with the GR2's on my car now.
You may be correct about the exact drop. But the Sportlines lower the car too much esp with the spring rates they are. Don't you notice bouncing off your bumpstops over anything but small bumps?

If you had GCs (even with 350/300 rates) you don't want to lower the car much more than 1 inch. But if you really aren't too worried about it for performance and your mostly into the looks then the sportlines work.

The ideal setup (ideal = $$$$) is true coilovers with shotened struts/shocks.
