Eibach Pro Kit Plus installed! Love it!

I'm very pleased with the results of the Eibach Pro kit plus. The ride height is perfect! The add-ons didn't compromise the ride quality from what I can tell. This was a very good decision in my opinion. If you have any questions about the kit let me know.
Here's a few pics of the results (sorry, just iPhone quality):

Here's a shot so you can see the factory ride height....notice how you can see the tire tread on the top of the tire.

Next will be powdercoated widened factory wheels in the rear and existing rears to the front! 315s really set off the back end!
Also my vararam intake whenever they're ready.

After putting about 500mi on the car now since the install, I've got to say that you can notice the bumps more. The car sure feels super stable though.

No, me and my buddy couldn't find ANY bump stops. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing.

Looks great. I have the kit and will be installing soon. I will post pics of mine when done.



Any other pointers or tips that you could share?

Thanks.
Well for the front sway bar, it was way easy to just loosen the 2 motormounts underneath and then jack the engine up a few inches. After that just twist and push the factory swaybar out the passenger side.

Don't impact the nut tight on the top of your struts! They don't like that very much.

Just a bit stiffer, but the handling is noticeably better.
