    Eibachs fitted!

    My Eibach 30/30 kit for my coupe arrived today, fitted them after work, took all of 1.5hrs.


    Lowered the rear end a lot! It looks a lot more than 30mm. The front however hasnt changed much. Still time to settle i guess though.
    Also the rear axle weight of my car is exact to the limit on the springs, meaning they will be compressed right down, the front however is 200KG lighter than the limit.
    Im hoping the front will settle a bit more over time though.

    Its pissing down and dark now, so ill try to take some pics tomorrow.

    I know what you mean, my rear Springs were compressed right down straight away, looked fantastic but when i went over a bad bump in the road there was no more compression left in the Springs, so the shock would traval right through the body of the car, sounded terrible.
    Hope yours are ok.

    I havnt had any such bother as of yet, done about 150miles since they were fitted, seems to be a right bit of travel left.

    Looks much better now.

    I don't know wether to go for a 30/30 or a 40/30 drop. Was your car already lowered 20mm to begin with?
