hmmm, doesn't seem like it drops very much...
True, but it looks like enough to close that wheel gap some and level out the front a bit. I'm personally saving up for coilovers, but I figured I would post this to give everyone more options

Wish they offered their sportline series for the Fiesta, little more aggressive drop.
That's such a terrible choice. 95% of the time springs only worsen the ride and handling of a car. Putting springs only neuters a car.

That's most of the reason I'm saving for coils, the stock ride is already rough enough, I can only imagine what putting springs on would do to it haha

First, the graphics package that Eibach photo shopped on that car is ugly.

I think the stock car sits low enough. There is barely any wheel gap now. Also the Eibach springs should ride better. They are progressive and end up with the same front rate and nearly the same rear. Stock springs should actually dive less. Only reason for getting these springs is to slightly lower the car and soften the ride.

I do like the fact that the ad shows factory spring rates and alignment settings. I'll see what H&R comes out with.

LOL I know of the guy who's car that it looks just like D1JL's (aka Dave) car from another forum he had his car at Eibach to let them measure and develop the springs (got to keep them too i think) Not everyone's cup of tea but he likes it :) Glad to have them supporting our car and hope to see more from them in the future. Always nice to have options ..

Ask and you shall receive!



These PRO-STREET-S are still in development and may change. l think we all agree these cars are blast to drive and we are very excited to get these coilovers out to the community. No solid ETA as of yet, but we will keep you posted as soon as production is scheduled.

The drop on the Eibach springs looks pretty clean and would be pretty close to the height I'd set it at if/when I get coils.
How do stock shocks usually react to Eibach Pro-kit?
IIRC in the GTI community H&R Sports will halve the life of OEM shocks.

Hmm, What year is your vehicle?

We engineer our springs to work in conjunction with the OEM dampers. Part of this process is finding the functional range of travel in the original equipment and working within those parameters. This is why we may not always be the "lowest drop" amongst our competitors.
