    Thanks for that buddy, never noticed that section at the bottom!

    Found out they're 231....wow!

    Never knew springs were that expensive.

    My second question is...


    Is it worth spending 231 for a 50mm drop all round, or pay 150 for a 50/40 drop?

    I know what your thinking, I have the same dilema with mine, I will probably go for the Eibachs over the H&R's

    The Eibach's are very similar to the H&R's but the H&R's are slightly better quality. Are they worth the 80+ extra though?, I'm not so sure.
