Eibach Springs?

Hey guys I been doin some research through the forum about the Eibach springs and was just wondering if anyone local used them? I always hate seeing the dropped Honda's and Acura's around here driving 5 mph like is a slalom around potholes and I don't want to be that guy! Its a 1" drop so i dont think i would have a problem, but I'd love to hear from someone who uses them. Also if anyone knows where the Eibach brand for springs and sway bars ranks that would be greatly appreciated as they are a lot cheaper than pedders, pfadt, and hotchkis.

Thanks,
Mike

On the older cars I've been pulling out alot of Eibach's because the cars are settling too much and bottoming out. They work good at first then weaken by the looks of it.

Not sure about the Eibach Springs,but I have the Hotchkis TVS system, larger sway bars front and rear and the car sits really nice.

Hmmm thanks for the responses. I decided to get them cause i got them brand new off Amazon for $165! That is almost $100 cheaper than everyone else, and cheaper than most used ones. Its also sold directly by Amazon so free shipping and no hassle returns if somethings wrong.

Yea they don't come up in a regular search. You have to search by the part # which is 38144.140 for the springs and 38144.320 for the sways.

I'd still go with Hotchkis, but that's just me.

Good question I'm not 100% sure, but I do know I've seen them offered for the V-6 and the V-8, but never noticed what the difference was. Check out Eibach's website that's how i found the part # to search for on Amazon.

I have the Eibach springs and sway bars and I'm very happy with them. I remember seeing a video where they tested the springs and sway bars on the track. I'll see if I can find it.

If I recall the V6 part number is a 38143.140 and SS is 38144.140 for their springs.
