    Stilts removed (56k Friendly Thumbs)

    Got my Eibachs (30mm) fitted today, very pleased - doesn't seem to have effected the ride quality to any great degree, looks much better and has tightened up the handling nicely. Only fitted a few hours ago so will no doubt settle in a bit more.

    looks much better and the handling will improve dramastically
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Looks very nice and i want to lower mine but im unsure of the camber and also the rattles.

    So it doesnt seem much firmer than standard?

    Does the car still roll like a big if you do the left to right thing at 30mph say or around fast bends eg motorway netrances/exits
