    Question Suspension Question....

    I want to lower my 2002 WS6 w/ the Eibach Pro Kit. I will be adding LG Subframe Connectors @ the same time. Will I need an adjustable PHB to get my rear end right?

    Rather than waste money on the Eibach pro-kit, I would get rear coil overs. This will still drop your car about 3/4 of an inch in the rear...so I'm told. You can adjust your spring rate from 130-250ft-lbs. This for about $580 plus S&H. I saw them on ws6store.com. They will be able to answer any questions that you may have. These springs will help you with your holeshot, and provide you with better traction while cornering. This combined with your subframe connectors, you will see a world of difference. Hope this helps.

    Depending on how much you want to spend. They have a double coil over too. Here's the link for that

    Stankeric. Do you all ready have the Eibach Pro Line Kit? I just removed
    a set from my WS6 that I had on around two months. I live in the country
    and the roads won't allow me to run that low. It looked great and handled
    the road like glue. The springs are allready mounted on new front struts that I'll let go with the kit. Let me know if you are interested in them.

    The Eibach springs with give you a nice stance and much improved handling. Yes an adjustable panhard bar is a wise choice. Also look into installing a set of lower control arm re-location brackets to compensate in the geometry change of the suspension. With these parts you will be able to better advantage of your new springs. Good Luck!

    An adjustable PHB went in at same time as my pro-kit, shocks, SFC & LCA's but I don't know if really needed it or not. They are sorta cheap so I thought why not.

    Is a single or double adjustable recommended? What is more common, im looking to get one soon, Dont know if I should spend the extra money on a double adjustable or not, only difference I see is that you can adjust it w/o removing it w/ a double adjustable and w/ a single you need to remove it to adjust it.

    Single is fine- And, you can adjust that on the car as well, just not the overall length.
