You won't bottom out, just go really slow and at an angle if you have a lip. Or if it bothers you that much go around. Just don't drive the suggested 'limit' around them, come to a stop and gently go over, don't truck it and take them at 30mph.

I have a friend with a slammed civic and his exhaust is the only thing that will touch, just gotta drive on the wrong side and position that in the middle so it doesn't scrape.

Back on topic, I love my Eibach's, love the look and stock ride quality still, and not that expensive which is a plus.

Really? for a 1-1.3 drop? I knew we shouldn't hit it at 30, but didn't realize it was that close.

I guess it really depends on the certain roadway as well...

@ SSE...

do you have the standard drop springs or the pro kit (complete coilovers)?

That's what I thought, I know the V8 pro kit is only a 1 inch drop which seems to be the minimum standard.

Can't compare with the standard springs, as the Eibachs were put on during the SLP conversion, and I only drove the car to the technical control and back (about 30 miles in total).

But I do have to admit that the ride is good, and handling, well.. the few corners I took, the car really doesn't feel like it's heavy at all (ok, maybe coming from a Range Rover Sport diesel makes a difference).

All in all, I'm quite happy I went for them right away.

No rub with the 22's, even in reverse with the steering wheel completely turned.

I've had the Eibach's for a year and a half and I've never bottomed out, not even during a rough auto x. I however am scraping on my driveway now with my ACS splitter...looking for a fix.
