    hi everybody

    im in the middle of fitting my eibach lowering springs. doing the rears at the minute, noticed that you get a big black rubber plate with the springs. is it nessecary to fit this? and presumably it goes onto the bottom plate of the springs seat. can someone confirm this please?

    many thanks

    Donnie

    I didn't fit mine tbh... couldn't see any reason too. There is already rubber like padding that fits top and bottom. I couldn't see how fitting it would benefit other than to raise the ride another few millimeters.
