Eibach Sportlines an input requested

Ordered some Eibach Sportlines for my V6. I didn't do enough research beforehand. (Wine does that on occassion.) It appears that in addition to needing an adjustable panhard bar and LCA relocation brackets, I need some adjustable camber plates. While I don't want to cheap out, my pockets aren't but so deep either. Any suggestions on what I need here in the context of what i can get away with on cc plates? Also, anyone have any bad experiences with Sportlines. I want a lowered look but don't want to look like "one of those kids."

You can get away with camber bolts which are a lot less expensive. You may not even need them as it only drops the front just over an inch. Eventually you will need new shocks/struts because the stock ones will wear out a lot sooner. Also, an adj upper control arm would be a good idea to reset your pinion angle. If you're still running the stock driveshaft, you may be okay because the two piece design is a lot more forgiving for offset angles. Sure, you can just throw springs on and a panhard bar like many have done, but you will get premature wear on certain components and will need to replace parts eventually. So, why not do it right the first time? Lowering a car is a lot more pricy than some people think if you're going to do it correctly.

That's the logic I'm operating from. Cheaper in the end to do it right.

Camber bolts you'll need. If you're doing Koni struts and shocks you'll get 1/2" more low while on stock it'll be as advertised. I just did my install this weekend and I have -1.75 camber and need the bolts. Click image for larger version

I'm a bit thick at times. Installing the cc plates looks like a piece of cake. After installing them, it's off to an alignment shop for them to adjust them/my tire alignment right?

My 2013 GT has the Eidbach Sportlines and J&M adjustable panhard bar. Had to install the Eidbach camber bolts as the negative camber on the front was going to cause wear on the tires and the stock bolts don't have enough adjustment to them. Nothing else was done.


Mine is not for racing/track just for cruising and car shows. Pics in my album.

Thanks WiM. I ended up changing the order to the Eibach Pro Kit. My rear now is about 2" over the rear tires. The more I thought about the significant drop of the sportlines, camber plates and potential pinion angles I changed the order to the Pro Kit. Still may need the camber plates but it seems I don't hear as many folk talking about its critically necessary for that. Did the BMR adj panhard bar earlier today to prep.

The cc plates will be unnecessary for the prokit. You will be able to get away with camber bolts if even needed

I just ordered the "eibach sport system plus"
which is
-eibach sportline springs
-front and rear sway bars
-eibach pro damper shocks and struts

Before I get that installed I am going to get
-adj panhard bar
-adj rear upper control arm (with bracket)
-lower control arms (with brackets)

*** For a little I considered getting BC Racing coilovers or SR Performance Coilovers
but ended up going with my original plan.

The sportlines should give me a good enough drop to get rid of most of that wheel gap. And I feel like the handling will be better with this kit than coilovers because of the sway bars that come with it.

Did NOT order Caster Camber Plater or Camber bolts, many people say you dont need them since its only 1.1" drop in the front

Pinion angle is messed up with any amount of drop you do.

My caster is at 7.9* and the spec max range is 7.9. I need CC plates but my camber is good because of the longer bolts.
