I WILL MAKE THIS THREAD A STICKY IF WE CAN GET SOME GOOD INFO AND PICTURES ON HERE. THE OTHER LOWERING SPRINGS THREADS ARE VERY OUTDATED AND DON'T HAVE PICTURES WITH THEM. POST UP GUYS!

I have Eibach springs with Tokico Blue struts and about a 2" drop all around.

dont forget to get new strut mounts and other key suspension parts when youre lowering it or it wont be at its best......control arms, strut mounts, bushings etc

I will absolutely make this a sticky if we can get enough good info and pictures on here. I would like to lay it out like my other stickies and have links to websites that sell each spring along with spring rates and pictures of each option installed on a car. Maybe I will work on getting everything together this week.

Keep posting guys. I will need good pictures for the sticky!

2"? I thought eibachs were only a 1" to 1.2" drop?

Chefsp0t 10-30-08 1:17

That is what they advertise (1.3" front 1.2" rear) but they seemed to settle a little more than that. :shrug:

How hard was it to do the ebay coil overs.

guitardude1568 10-30-08 1:27

they were on the car when i bought it

outlaws318 10-30-08 1:34

Have you looked at them.

guitardude1568 10-30-08 1:37

A little, the guy i bought it from said you have to shave the side of the strut or something for them to fit so its a pain in the ass. They are also hard as hell. Any little bump you hit hurts like a bitch. Eventually i am gonna redo the suspension but for now these will work.
