    Question Bilstein B8 F/R What Springs to Go For...?

    As above really, Ive recently bought Front and Rear Bilstein B8 dampers which i believe are 40mm shorter than the standard dampers.

    Has anyone fitted these? what did you think of them,and what springs did you use?

    What i gather from LMF is that the springs that match the B8 dampers are Eibach Sportline sport spring - £125.25 although i am a little flustered that they are cheaper than the Eibach Pro-Kit performance spring - £130.05

    Is this correct?
    What would you recommend Pro or Sport?

    Has anyone that's fitted this set up or similar experienced any problems with chamber? etc

    sorry if this has been covered already

    Cheers

    Thats a good price,the pro springs are not as low as the sportsline,IMO sportsline are too low,I don't know why the pro's are more expensive compared to the sportsline maybe because of popularity, i'll let you know how they pair,i've got front B8's to go on on with the eibach pros

    Do you know how much the pro springs lower by? and are they as compatible with the shorter B8 damper as the sportsline...?

    i want to lower the car to give it sharper lines, but want it to still be practical to use so i was thinking 30/40mm on a SRI-Turbo?
