    Eibach Sportline... Not low enough and front 2high

    Installed Eibach sportlines over 10k ago. Front still sits a touch higher than the rear. Is there anything in the front strut assembly at the top that can be removed to drop another 1/4 inch or so? I wish it was lower in the front or if the rear was 1/4 inch higher. Does anyone make 1/4 spacers for the rear springs? I was thinking little pads could easily be added below the rears.

    Eibach springs are known to sag at the rear overtime. What you can do is switch the rear to stock springs or go look for a set of WS6 for better spring rate.

    I dont know for sure but cant you just do a heater hose mod for the fronts and it will lower it a bit. Im sure someone else can give a better answer.

    The Sportlines are well known for sagging over time esp. in the rear. Add to that the spring rates aren't increased enough for the amount of drop they give.

    I know you can get 1/8" polyurethane and 3/4" aluminum rear spacers, but I don't know about anything between those two sizes.

    There's No hose mod for the front, that only works for the rear.
