All you guys with Eibachs....

Have you driven around with 4 people in the car yet? I'm just wondering if there were any problems, or if you hit the bumpstops at all.

Drove around with 3 passengers (so that's 4 including me). No problems whatsoever. Ride was smooth as ever. I haven't once hit the bumpstops, and I've pushed it pretty hard (by myself, not with passengers).

I put about 2000 miles on the car since I installed the springs. I don't have any problem myself and i drive this thing to and from work everyday. it rides smooth and I don't have any problem even with a full load of passengers in my car.

how does the body roll feel after the install of the new springs? I definately want to do this, but need to know if the body roll is improved. Also wondering about the ride quality. Is it diminished at all. ie. bumps feel bigger then before. I'm hoping with better tires, sorings,and strut bar that it will be an animal on the turns.

But you can't compare the Eibachs to the stock springs when you talk about ride height with a load. The Eibachs are progressive rate springs in that they are stiffer the more you compress them. Stock springs are constant rate springs (somebody correct me if I'm wrong).

Ok killer13 in this case mine is with stock spring.
But also with the Eibasch you lower the 6 around 1.5" or something like that. With the same weight like mine and with the Eibach I suppouse the car has to lower more or not? Or stay stiffer at the same height?

I'm not too sure about that. Best thing to do would be for someone on here to take measurements with stock and Eibachs given a full load (four people, luggage, etc.) To me it seems that this car has much more wheel clearance in the front than in the rear. I would think the Eibachs would have staggered the drop a little more from front to rear.

I think in the front is 1" and in the rear 1,5"
