    Eibach springs on a GSI make a difference ?.

    I'm fed up with the GSI handling like a blomange and want to make it sit flatter in the corners and give me a bit mroe confidence when I am pressing on..

    I dont want to make it into a race car or be rock solid and need to retain a degree of comfort as its the main family car.

    Also I dont want to spend a fortune and don't need the car to sit on its arse. So was thinking about some Eibach springs 15mm lower. Anyone tried Eibach's on standard shocks and has it made a notable difference, and helped to stop the wallowing in the corners.

    Also I wonder if someone could confirm to me whether as I suspect the standard OEM springs are progressive springs. ?.

    Many thanks

    I've lowered mine with just springs but find it rebounding to quick which of sets the car when cornering . Will be ordering some shorter stiffer shocks soon . Any suggestions anyone........?

    I have eibach springs with Bilstein B8 dampers. The ride is a lttle firmer but actually more comfortbale as the bounce and rebound is better controlled.

    Again i have the eibach 50/30 split drop. sits like this....





    Looks wise, definitely. But it does still handle like it's on jelly. If you hit a bump it is a fair few bounces before it levels out. I am currently contemplating coilovers.

    Daily driving it will give you no issues, but if you push your car regularly then these are not for you
