Does anyone have any pics with these springs installed.
I have a major concern with eibach.
before i bought my z i had a 95 civic, and a 2001 integra.
on both of these cars the front always sat higher than the back.
eibach said something stupid like the body line of the car was even that way.
personally i think either they thought it performed better(but in my opinion did not look better) or didnt want struts blowing out. on my civic i swiched to sprint springs but these hondas never sat right anyway. i finally want with a set of ground control coil overs to make sure the car sat right.
if you guys park your z in the garage with it in gear and no parking brake ON LEVEL GROUND and use a measuring tape, is the right rear the same hieght as the left rear and the front right the same as the front left?
only because i had bad experiences with these springs on hondas.
i dont want to make the same mistake on a 30,000 dollar vehicle.
any insight on this!!!
ive always liked the tire to be flush with the wheelwells on all four corners. though this might not be the best route what do you're rides look like.'
Only my opinion -
Eibachs are bad for the following reasons:
1.) Drops the car too much to get within spec without front and rear camber kits
2.) They are progressive spring rates - IMO, this is not desirable. I prefer a linear spring vs a progressive spring. Linear is more predictable and provide a better ride, agan, my preference
3.) the drop is 1.0 pro kit, 1.3 sport kit all around. IMO, the rear drop should be more than the front to provide a more balanced drop.
4.) the drop is so much that I would suggest replacing the absorbers at the same time. You can get a few miles out of the absorbers with the eibachs. The eibachs weren't designed to run with the stock absorbers.
I run eibachs on my other car. The ride is incredably harsh compared to stock. I run hotchkis on my Z and in comparison to stock, the ride is improved. Take that as you will, but I won't buy eibachs ever again.
Love my eibach. Just scared pantless that when I slap on my 19" Racing Hart next week and the body kit in the next 3-4 weeks that I won't be able to drive anywhere without destroying my body kit. To me, it's dropped a little too much, but then again, some people think it didn't drop enough.. Here's pic of my.
I had a set of those in my Infiniti I30. Good product, but not a good match for a 3800lb car though (progressive isnt good for that kinda application). I had the pro-kit. Well made, fit well, looked good.
Well I'm finally going to order the springs. Will I need anything else with the eibachs like a camber kit or is the drop slight enough that the alignment can be adjusted without it. I've read some people need the kit and some don't.
