    Eibach Pro Kit - Front springs only - Opinions Please

    Hi,

    As many of yous will already know the springs Eibach supply for the S3 are the Pro Kit, these are front springs only which are a 20mm drop.

    I would like to know your personal opinion having two different types of springs on the car?

    Would this affect the handling of the car in anyway?

    Thanks, Gary

    Eibach know what they're doing, so if they only bothered making front springs, there has to be a reason.

    Eibach are knowing for making kits that hardly drop at the rear, but this is a first for them I think, to not even bother lowering the rear a few mm...

    Having said that, I would rather fit a full set!

    Before I had my KV V3 fitted I had the Eibach kit with the front springs only, and the car was much better, when was ordering the springs I too had the same dilemma between H&R and Eibach, and had a talk with one of tzhe engeneers from Eibach and he said that after testing various setups and everything they concluded that lowering the front for 25mm was the best setup so I decided to go with Eibach even dough the price of the Eibach and H&R was the same. P.S. I have them for sale if you want...very good price...
