    Question Eibach sportline?

    Who has run them and knows about them? Are they good springs? Is the 1.6/1.4 drop to much? Just looking for input how they ride and hold up and drive. Thanks.

    I had them on my last Z and they were pretty bad, i always wished i wouldve gotten atleast the Pro Kits and not the sportlines. I would scrape it everywere, if i even tried to push it a bit in the corners if there was a dip or bump i would hit it bad. Plus it puts alot of strain on your shocks. Get the Stano's heard many good things about them and if you dont have good shocks down the road get some Bilsteins or even better Koni's depending on how much you want to spend and how you drive your car, GL.

    had them... and got rid of them.
    not only they lower a lot, the spring rates are soft... which doesn't go well together with very limited suspension travel.
    On top of that, they are progressive.

    So you either try to dampen the spring properly and you bottom out.
    or you overdamp making it a harsh ride, while not letting the spring do its work.
    either way... it's a bad choice.
    There are much better springs around.
