    Eibachs query

    hi i was just wondering if i get some new springs, say the eibach pro kit the one on lmf that lowers 30mm. would i have to get some new shocks aswell or would they still be effective on standard shocks?

    thanks

    Mine are fine on Standard shocks, any lower and you would need to change really. They are excellent value IMO
    I'm after another Coupe Turbo

    It would be recommended to upgrade your shocks if it were me, although you can get away with standard shocks with no detremental consequences.

    30mm will be perfecty ok on standard shocks.

    General rule of thumb is any lower than 40mm then new uprated shortened shocks are required too...

    Unless ur current shocks are totally buggered then just whack on the new springs and away u go. Personally I would always get full kit (springs & shocks) but then again I would never buy Eibach as they are overpriced IMO but each to their own

    ive just heard eibachs bigged up on here a lot so if so many people think they're good then they must be worth a look i dont mind the price really if im getting quality.

    thanks for your help guys
