    bilstein B6 with eibach pro springs

    are these a good combination?

    im looking for a gain in handling performance, lowered for looks, but most definately dont want a harsh or bouncy ride. i know a lot of people, judging by the group buy, want B8's, with a harder damping setting, so i feel b6 might be just right, slightly harder than oem, esp with eibach over H&R's.

    how much would this lower the car by?

    if anyone has any know how or pics of this set up i would appreciate it.

    Karl

    always thought the B6's were for standard ride height and not as effective for lower ride height... could be wrong tho

    And I know why you're asking this question

    Damian at DPM has said they are the same comfort levels, but the B8s are designed for lowering springs and the B6s are designed for standard height.

    I think B6 springs are for OEM springs and so may not effectively damp your lowering springs, you want B8s for that

    hopefuly damien from dpm will see this. i just thought the b8's had shorter pistons for less travel. whereas the b6 wer standard length, but with eibach springs will still lower it 20/25mm i just found. maybe. hopefully. lol.

    i should have just mesaged damien. duhhhh.

    thanks guys

    Go H+R :-)

    on a serious note... every car i've seen with eibach's seems to squat at the back (car looks lower at the back than the front) while the H+R is the other way round! I think the cars look alot better better lower at the front :-) (lets face it looks are important! lol)

    ha i've been watching that very carefully! i just don't want too much discomfort, that is all, someone compared the two different springs and based on that review i chose eibach (thankyou someone) as they are more subtle, combined with b6's i thought it could be a nice combination for a little performance without too much sacrifice for comfort and ride quality.

    i hope someone has a picture.....

    The B8 dampers are for when your using lowering springs, the B6 are for standard length springs.
