Question Anyone running Eibach lowering springs?

What's the lowering rate u got out of them?

What would be a better choice for our cars? Pro-kit or the Sport line?

So far only the Pro-Kit has been released by Eibach. The Sportlines are still in development. The better choice will come with your personal preference in ride height and performance.

Here's the information I have so far on the Pro-Kit:

Part# 82105.140
Lowers 1.0" front and rear
Front spring rate: 148-200 lbs/in
Rear spring rate: 103-274 lbs/in

Tony: I was just about to forward this URL to you

OP: As the post above mentions it's really about what you are trying to accomplish. The Sportlines will have higher rates and they will be lower (and IIRC linear but Tony can correct me if I'm wrong). I would not suggest OEM dampers with the Sportlines but you could get away for the OEM dampers for awhile with the Pro Kit.

IIRC Peking had pics of his car with both in his thread so check that out too.
