Eibach Lowering springs

Postby est1988 » December 2nd, 2013, 7:57 pm

I just picked up a pair of these springs the other day at the junkers off an 88 rs. Anyone know how they ride/feel? Right now I'm on stock springs with 1 and a half coils cut off on 185/65/14. I like the height but if these can make it go lower maybe a quarter inch-half inch would maybe give me more reason to install them.

Theyre black Eibach springs with 62671 - 4004.102 stamped on them. Any help would be appreciated.

Stiffer than stock.

I took it maybe 2 years ago so I couldn't tell you how much gas I had, lol. Full interior, spare tire, jack. It will definitely handle better than your cut springs.

I ran stock for a while but then switched to 27.5mm. Handling is now much better!
