    Hi guys,
    I have a set of eibach springs to go on my s3. Front is 25ml and rear is 20ml. Could I swap these around or are they specific to front and back?

    No you couldn't :keule:

    Why would you want the back lower than the front?

    For clearance, over bumps and high drives. I haven't lowered a car in 8 years. It was a question and no need to berate me mate.

    If you need clearance over bumps and go on high drive ways then remove the lowering springs, but even if you could swap them round (which you can't) then it would ruin the handling of the car.

    Good use of the word berate, I like a nicely placed verb.

    The springs are also completely different overall lengths on front & back and sit differently on the shocks/lower plate.
