AP COILOVERS TO EIBACH SPRING'S

CMD

Pointing Forward's!!!!!!!!!
I have been running AP coilover's since August i'm going back to Eibach shock and spring setup (new). I have played with the AP's and still not happy with the stance of the car. Could someone post up some pic's if you are running shock and spring combo. cheers.

It's a shame you're going back to lowered springs. I've had no such issues with my KW V1's. In fact they ride better than the S-Line (quattro GmbH) suspension.

It's important to know you will always be able to lower the front more than the back simply because of the length of the struts vs the platforms on the rear springs. Set the rear first and adjust the fronts to match.

If you go to KW's website you can download their instructions which give the MAX and MIN distances between wheel arch and hub centre. Important if you don't want to destroy the suspension geometry!!

Hmm ,
I will be getting set of coileys soon and was looking at weitec because it's made by KW and because I had springs in focus before. But if AP's are made as well I might have a go with them.

AP & KW Are the same company. the AP's are well made and adjustment is easy.
I have used a nice heavy wax on them for protection, as i have never had coilover's before i was pleased with how easy they are to adjust... Slepy when mine are removed feel free to make me an offer..
