I just ordered myself Eibach springs and would like to see if anybody out there can post some rides with them on. I am thinking whether to cut the rear coils to lower it more. How much of a drop is with the Eibach springs anywaz?

The front is the stock springs. Height drop is 1.2" on the rear which levels the car out.
Yes, that is correct. I call it the "cat in heat" look. The rear height varies a little depending on how much gas is in the tank too but it is insignificant.<p>I got the springs used from another forum member because he felt the springs made the ride too harsh and didn't want them anymore. My intention was to only install the rear springs to level out the ride height. I felt the ride was pretty firm as it is on my 18", 40 profile tires, so I didn't need to go any lower.<br>
yes yes.. very soon.. there is another guy called boomer I spotted on the forums that is from Vancouver as well and drives a silver s40! Still contemplating on painting my rims before the shoot <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
after landing HARD on couple of potholes in the ghetto part of miami my shocks got that funny noise when you go over any hole, specially the ones i used to go over daily and the car would not "ride" the holes with the same sound it does now, when i go over bumps and holes it sounds like my car was dropped from the top of the empire state lol
