Eibach lowering springs

Hi all if i fit these springs to a classic v3 sti how much will it lower from standard springs and how will it effect ride quality. Looking on scoobyparts they say about 5-10mm as anybody else got these fitted .

Hi steve


Quote: from a guy with Eibach Lowering Springs

The difference wasn't huge, but it definitely reduced the amount of body roll and settled the rear down. When accelerating out of corners, the rear used to feel like it was about to let go (I guess it was just the suspension compressing), but now it doesn't squat as much and feels a lot more firmer.

Hi mate ruled out eibach because of the minimal amount of drop though this may suit you i dont know,but i fitted spax -35mm lowering springs to a mates classic running 18`s and the ride was probably the best balance with std shocks ive come across handled mint but still comfy and they were loads cheaper than the eibachs not knocking them coz theyre decent springs-mr wid on here owns the car now if you want to see how much lower the car was check out the silver classic on the main site (latest desktop 2)springs were bought from here http://www.motorsportworld.co.uk/ absolutely mint place to deal with.

the Eibacks will only lower an STi by around 5-10mm (if at all) due to the lower std ride height of sti's..........................

on std classics they normally run around 30mm................

best spring combo ob the market by far because they are a true "progressive" spring and it is this quality your paying for................
