Eiibach Pro kit spring review

very much a improvement for my Brembo car the car rides much better now. I am very impressed with the way it rides and handles.

installed springs and J&M adjustable panhard bar and nothing else. you do not not need any after market camber bolts or anything.

Had the car aligned this morning with no issues was not even off that much. guess I got lucky putting it back together

very very pleased with these springs as I wanted it lower without messing up the comfort as well.

Would have been curious as to how the rear would have set without the adj panhard. The ride is very close to stock for BBP cars IMO, without the body roll and brake dive. How long did you drive before the alignment?

Had mine lowered yesterday with EIBACH pro springs.
I just had the lowering springs, BMR Panhard adjustable rod and Eibach adjustable camber bolts. Everything worked out great! The car rides better then ever before. I actually really liked the Brembo settings but now the car looks even better, the break squat is dramaticaly reduced and ride quality is amazing with these progressive springs.

Check out the before and after pics..

Congrats to both of you. I know mine made a huge difference (even though I went with Steeda and Koni) and I'm so glad I finally lowered this thing.

It really changes the whole dynamic of these cars. I've always loved leaving work and getting in my car. Now, I've fallen in love all over again, and can't wait to drive.

I have had them on for jus about a week. I cant imagine them settling enough now to mess with the aligment.

with the addition of my recent mods, saleen grille, cs fascia, amr wheels. Roush axleback, Eibach springs its like I got another new car.

cant stop smiling.....

Agreed, plus now I can see the road behind me instead of the trunk!!!

Thought it was close to that, I think mine has settled down over the past few days. Leaving for vacation, so it's just going to sit around and collect dust for the next 10 days or so, should be ready when I get back, but like yours, I don't think mine is off very much, but it does seem to drift a little, probably the left fighting the right and the right fighting back, we will see. Looks like you got bit by the mod bug, watch your wallet, it has been known to eat whatever is inside of it.

After I lowered mine, the only alignment adjusment need was the toe settings. Camber angle remained within specs with just a minor increase on the negative side to about -1 from 0.75. I am definitely sure I didnt need those adjustable camber bolts but they mounted them anyway.

As for the BMR panhard bar, Im not sure if it was absolutely necessary either. Lowering 1-1.5" shifts the body so little that it is almost impossible to notice it unless you measure it. Now its aligned very precisely with the adjustable bar but still, would it really matter to adjust to 1/10 of an inch precision?

I think eibach pros offer the perfect lowering for our cars. Anything below 1.5" causes problems with fitting wider tires and needs further adjustments to suspension etc. and imho, it doest look better either.

Just ordered these. Don't know why, but my gap with the 19's never looks as bad as some I've seen. I am sure the Eibachs will be a good improvement however.

You know I've when wondering something along these lines. I saw two pictures two different '12 california editions (both stock), and one of them had a wheel gap that looked 4", and the other one looked fine...I don't understand why it looks noticeably awful on some stocks but fine on others....
