Eibach Sportlines installed

I finally decided on the Eibach Sportlines for my Mach 1. I really wanted something that was pretty close to the stock spring rate for the Mach 1's. I also wanted to keep the my stock shocks and struts longer since I only have 57k miles. I plan to get Bilsein HD's when the time comes.

I'm waiting on a new gas tank to arrive Monday. My old one had a leak. And just in time for 4" to 9" of snow tomorrow.

I'm not sure how long it takes for the springs to settle, but I'm diggin' the drop. Anybody know about how much lower the settle will bring?

Not sure about how much lower it will drop after settling. But if you shake the car back n forth it well help it settle in. This is what we did with trucks we lifted at our local truck accessory shop. Lol.

Thanks! Good, I was hoping it wasn't a lot lol. It started snowing about a half hour ago. I finally got a beater to drive on the poopy days, but it will be worth it to get her out and see how the springs feel.

Looking good! They will probably drop about 1/8" to a 1/4" after they settle. Mine took about a month or so cause I didn't drive it a ton after.

Gorgeous car man. For what it's worth I never noticed any settling on my car car after installing a pro kit.

Good choice! I've also heard no more than an inch drop with those so you'll be happy if you want a mild drop.

As always the car looks great! Oh and if you ever want to give those Heritage wheels a new home, hit me up

Hey Azure,

She looks great! I love the way Eibach Sportline Spring Kit looks, especially on a clean New Edge!

In regards to settling, in most cases I have seen them drop an extra 1/4" after settling for a couple hundred miles.

Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!

-Will

Was the install done at a Ford dealer? If so, what was the damage?

Yup, it will be $400 including the alignment. I'm getting some other stuff done, so she's not home yet.
