Bit of fun today, fitted some Eibach springs

Was alot easier than I thought it was going to be, no seized bolts, the front struts came out without any problems.

Then once I'd realised there isnt much movement when you disconnect the rear strut and you only need to remove the lower arm bolt to get the spring out all was good.

started with an arch to wheel center of F-345mm R-360mm and ended up with 330mm front and rear

That's a really nice drop for springs. Looks like a bit more poke with the new rims too?

Are you sticking with standard dampers?

Thanks.

Sticking with standard shocks for now, I've read they are the same eibach springs that VWR use and say can stay on stock shocks. If/when they fail I'll look to upgrade

Looks spot on. Low enough to 'look low' if you know what I mean, but I'd imagine not impractical.

I like the little splitter too.

Wonder if you can get one for an ed30 front..

I'm on H&R Springs and that looks lower than mine.

I'm 335mm centre to arch. (Just checked)

This looks way lower than that to be fair.

When I fitted then 2 weeks ago they measured 330 arch to centre, may have dropped a bit since

Lovely looking car  :happy2:. If you're still thing about getting a down pipe id recommend the Relentless 3.5". They're £245 delivered and are a good quality item.
