    Re: Lowered with Eibach Sportline kit

    Are they the pro-kit or sportline items?

    Looks similar to mine.

    Mine are the pro-kit springs (not the low low sportslines).

    Cheers Rich.

    ordered my springs 2day [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] where did u get the spacers ... and where / how much for the fitment of the springs?

    tempted to try it myself but, so much on.... wondering whether may be easier all round to get a professional to do it.

    How do you find the ride quality? I've considered getting just springs but was worried it may affect ride quality.

    no probs.. I got the spacers as part of a group buy. The spacers are easy to get its getting the right bolts is the pain in the ar*e!

    As for fitting the springs, if you havn't done it before I would get a mechanic to do it for you. You will need spring compressors and the car will need 4 wheel alligning after.

    I paid 60 for a Audi Master Tech to change them and do the allignment! Good deal if you ask me!

    I didn't want a hard ride so just opted for the springs. I have had eibach springs on many cars before and the ride has always been good!

    It is a little more bouncy but its not too bad to be honest with you. depends what you want to do with the car. If you are interested in track days etc then go for the shocks also, if you do mainly motorway driving then they will be fine.

    No rear seats, spare wheel etc..., but still not good enough.
