Anyone got Eibach Sportlines?

well i just purchased a set of eibach sportlines. I used to have skunk2 coilovers, they were so horrible i had to get koni yellows and am having problems with the set up ( the ride sucks and now the set is squeaking like a MOFO) by the way.. install for the front was a bitch...alot of fabricating the old shocks and the konis...anyways so i just bought some Sportlines..i was wondering if anyone have tried these springs and if they give a good ride and comfort? I also got 18s so i was wondering if you know if they will clear in the rear cause i know that the rear drops lower than the front...holla back

I have them, and wish that I didn't. They blow your shocks, regardless of which ones you have. But yeah, they will be fine in the rear. Just stay near stock specs. They give the car a nice and level look, like it should look.

I have mine with 18's and really like them. I Have had them on for about 12xxx miles and no problems, i just wish it was dropped a little more up front. The ride isnt exactly like a caddy, but what do you expect. I recommend them.

These are the same springs that TRD slaps their name on wave

if you are having problems with your springs, you probably did a half-assed job by only replacing the springs and not the shocks. Get the job done correctly the first time around and you wont have problems later rolleyes

Regardless, only one type of shocks will hold up to this low of a drop. Any other strut/shock will wear faster.
