TME = 1/2" (IPD) <br>Evolve/Heico/Eibach are 1"+<p>Everyone loves their springs regardless of brand, some don't like 1"+ drop, especially if they have a sport package, makes scraping worse.

Re: Spring comparisons (Cicada)

where can i get the eibach springs from in the US at the best price? from whati remember they have the most dramatic drop at both the front and the back. i removed the front splitters on teh bumper on the stock body kit, so im not too worried abotu scraping [may be replacing bumper with the evolve bumper in the future]

Eibach appears to be a bit higher in the rear. Front is OK, not to low although I have seen a few cars, including my former V70R, which appear to have a lower stance in the front than others.<p>Either way we didn't really hear bad things about all of the brands so far so is is mainly like Kelly says about looks and useability.
