Eibach springs or another brand?

This winter i would like to lower my car but i don't really want it to ride like crap or handle bad. I've been looking at the eibach pro-kit springs but i don't know much about them or any other brand. Also they are the most expensive ones that i have seen so they must be good, but are they worth it. So what is everyone else using and how do you like them?

i prefer suspension techniques. they have a smooth ride and still handle very well. i've had them on my last 2 stangs and i already bought them for my cobra but haven't installed them yet.

I just installed H&R Super Sports and love them. All reviews I read, everyone was happy with them. They don't settle unevenly over time like Eibachs (supposedly) often do. I coupled the springs with KYBs all around, and the car handles great. Drastic improvement over the stock set-up. She even hooks up better. Just my two cents, but I rely heavily on product reviews and am very happy with H&R.

Well I'm using Eibach sport springs in my stang and its a little rough. I would look at the Mac lowering springs, I had them in my old car, the car handled a lot better and very smooth ride.

I have the Eibach Pro on my 88 Vert and they are great. I used MM isolators and that helped keep the drop an evan inch front and rear. New KYBs and it is 100% improvement.

Eibach has two different style springs., one for just lowering a little and the other Sportline for even lower. After experiencing many different springs on friends Mustangs, Eibach, Suspension Techniques, Mac and H&R, I have always gone to Eibach for the best ride out of all of them. Buddy them up with a good to great strut/shock combo and forget about the others. You get what you pay for. If Eibach was too expensive for you, I would look into the H&R's as a second choice. Don't bother with the Mac springs... They should stick to headers. Edelbrock makes a decent strut/shock combo, as well as Bilstein. KYB's suck unless you cannot afford the others. It's worth it to wait and save up for something better. The ride quality is wirth the extra money in my opinion.

Maxxxd is rite Eibach has 2 different types of springs. The Pro spring will give you the smooth ride that I think you looking for. The Sport spring is what I have and the ride is rough. Unlike Maxxxd I've had Mac springs and loved them in my old stang. If you're on a budget, I think Mac is the way to go.

While I agree that H&R springs are good springs, I have to say I have never had Eibach's settle uneven on me. Any spring matched with a substandard strut/shock combo will have to work twice as hard and will wear uneven or settle more than they should

I completely agree. I matched my 94 Cobra’s Eibach Pro springs with Bilstein strut/shock combo. The ride is great and handling has been improved 300% or more! Very different animal now!
