I'm looking at the eibach pro kit, with the sway bars, struts and springs. Does anyone have this kit? How is it ?

I'm also looking at potentially going Koni stR struts, h&r spring springs.mm caster camber plates. urethane iso's.

I'm looking for the car to handle decent in the twisties. Any suggestions?

I just installed the Eibach Pro Plus kit last weekend, I really notice the way my car handles in the cloverleafs exiting the interstate at about 75 mph. The car sticks like a go cart. Feels super stable and invites me to exit harder next time. I don't think you will be disappointed...

I have the Eibach Pro-Kit springs on my car, which are accompanied by 235/55R17 tires. They have been on the car since before I bought it, and I like them a lot.

Those big tires don't seem to rub in any way that I can detect, but I do see traces of it in the front splash guards. I figure the rubbing only happens in extreme maneuvers, or perhaps the previous owner had even bigger tires on at some point.

My tires are pretty wide and I have plenty of clearance without any rubbing in hard curves. The kit I installed came with springs, struts, shocks and sway bars. Really nice kit and all the components seem to work well together...

Im running the Koni yellows (adjustable) with H&R race springs before I went coil overs.
I do recommend going adjustable if you have the coin. If you don't want adjustable, go with the blisteins, you wont be disappointed.
As far as springs, I hear more people liking the Race springs over the pro-kit spring but either will stiffen up the suspension and will handle better.
For castor/camber plates, always go 4 bolt. I really like the qa1 cc plates and maximum motorsports cc plates.

Thanks for the input. My only worry about the race springs is that it may be too low. I"m only after 1.5ish drop.

Do you have a picture of your car with that set up? I'd love to see it

Any chance I get get you to look at the Steeda brand? We have some great packages here ... very good set-ups for spirited driving - depending on your budget, we can make a custom suspension build for you. The nice part about going with one brand is, they are all designed to work together to give you optimal performance!

Depending on your budget ... we can look at some of these packages:

Let me know if you would be interested in having one of our suspension experts put together a package for you ... you can email me at [email protected].

Best Regards,

TJ
