    Good god this suspention stuff is complecated!

    Right! a while back i lowered my car 30mm f & R on eibach springs with standard shocks, and tbh i like the ride and the handling has improved but as im going to fit a strutbace in the very near future i was thinking of uprating! Now i have just trawled through many posts and its left me more confused! i have been thinking about the OE bilstein shocks because they are a very reasonable price but if they are not much better than standard its not worth bothering , i have also seen eibach shocks for 280 odd and was wondering how much better than standard and how much better than the bilsteins they are? like i say i do want to upgrade my suspention! and an arb is in the pipeline too cheers

    Ive looked at some of the same stuff you have ny the sounds of it. I reckon if you change your shocks youll be loving it. The eibach pro dampers do look good and can support a variety of different drops.

    The OE bilstein ones however are OE so they should only be used on a standard drop. So your 30mm eibach springs won't be right. Have you thought about selling your springs and buying a kit with matching shocks and springs?

    yeh I get ya. I'd say the pro dampers kit is what you want then. Plus its pretty much made for your springs. So they will be at home with each other.

    Best I found it when looking was europerformance.co.uk

    Id love to buy these, just cant justify spending that much.
