    Hi need to change suspension on car. Fitted eibach pro springs on the standard shocks about 12 months ago and the fronts near side shock has had enough and decided to give up.

    Have searched and read through the forum looking for info on the B8 and B12, but still cant decide on which to get.

    What are people using and what are the differences between the B8 and B12 shocks.

    if you've already got sport springs just get the B8 dampers, not point in forking out for kit when you already have half of it

    The B12 kit is basically B8 dampers with Eibach Pro springs.

    Ive just fitted the b12 pro kit. The shocks are b8 as the part numbers on them are for b8's.

    Handles really good. really pleased with them.

    If you have got eibach springs already just get the b8's and then you have the b12 kit anyway.

    Glad I bought the B12 kit, as when I started fitting them one of the rear eibach springs had snapped.

    Just need to dig receipt from first purchase of eibachs to claim under warranty.

    Also fitted the KW rear adjustable arms at the same time. Need th ecar to settle for a couple of days before it goes for 4wd tracking.

    Big thanks to DPM Performance for getting them delivered as quick as possible.
