Installed Eibach Pro Kit Springs

This was no two hour install. More like four and a half. Not a significant drop but after reading about the Sportlines being "extreme" I got a bit nervous as I didn't want the car slammed. Much firmer ride and more sporty feel with a subtle drop. All in all, pleased with the results.

Thanks brother. The reason I'm happiest about changing from the Sportlines to the Pro Kit is looking at the rear; dropping that down another half inch would look odd (to me.) Also, with the subtle drop, the option of camber plates became a maybe from the decided several hundred dollar definitely (after the price of the springs.)

Are you going to go with the Ground Control Caster camber plates, if you decide to get them? That is who I plan on going with, when I get my springs.

It looks great. I like my Pro kit. For a DD it's a good drop and doesn't cause many other issues with scraping or other suspension issues. I'm thinking I want to go a little lower though...I'll have to wait and see.

Going to get a local shop to do an alignment in a week or so after they settle. From there I'll know if I need camber plates. I have a feeling I'm not though alucard. Stangman, I'm with you there. If there was something out there where the rear would have ended up this way and the front just a wee bit more, it would have been perfect. Like you said, this is my DD and I do have to content with a few speed bumps each day.

You won't need any camber plates. I took mine in for an alignment after a week or so and I didn't even really need one. They put it on the rack and it was so close they didn't even really mess with it.

Installed Eibach Pro Kit Springs

Looks good man!

I just installed a set of Sportlines, and they actually dropped it perfect for my taste.

We have a pretty similar looking ride lol. I have the fp6 package as well. Agreed on the 4hour install. I changed shocks/struts too. But it was well worth it!

wow, that looks great. I am thinking about the pro also but have been told that the spotline provides better performance. I am not knowing which to go with and if I would have to use camber plates. I would like to hear from both, with pro springs and sportline springs. I don't want a really slammed ride that will scrape everything but want to really hug in and out of corners.

Sportlines= slammed and need other suspension upgrades

Pro Kit= mild drop for a DD. you can use all of your stock stuff with these. No CC plates.

I'm running Sportlines w 20" wheels and no issues. Really hugs the corners Whatever you choose to do, add a set of sway bars and you'll be surprised how much of a difference it'll make

Kanas, I feel your pain. Those were exactly my thought processes. Something told me the Sportlines would be too low on my car. My rear always sat a little lower and looking at the Pro Kit on the back after my install, another inch lower would have been too much. But on the front, I wish I had another half inch drop. Mean14's ride is exactly what I was looking for but his rear and my car's rear looks to be close to same drop (his is a bit lower). Prior to my ordering these springs, in addition to the fear of being slammed was costs for C&C plates etc to get it done. In the end, we each have to make some ballpark guess work.

I'm pretty close to slammed, maybe a half inch of wheel gap on the rears, none on front. This is with SR springs and 19 inch wheels. Said it would drop 1.25-1.5, was more like 2 lol

They look great. One question please. This is from AM's website (I have a 14 v6 vert)

Lowers 2011-2014 V6 Convertible: Front - 0.8”, Rear - 1.2”

Do I need an adjustable Panhard bar for 1.2"?
What about adj upper control arm? Rear LCA relocate brackets.
I don't race/track so for my use stock drive shaft will do.
Thanks & best regards,

There's def gap on the front man. And the rears. I'd say you're probably just short of a 1.5" drop. Keep in mind you have a taller sidewall. What's your tire size?

That's way more than a 1.5, I measured stock to the drop it was 2"

SR springs 1.5" drop with 245/45/19s. Top picture is rear and bottom pic is the front. They have been on the car well over a year now and every 3rd week i car pool with two other people in the car. For me its a perfect drop and doesn't slam, even when loaded.

Thanks guys....these have been very good options, still not sure which way to go, ugh...lol.

Time to weigh out overall look, ride difference; and cost of each setup and overall mods.

I did do an adjustable panhard bar. (Went with BMR and installed before the springs.) Here's the weird thing. I measured before the spring install and the under-carrage was actually about .25" left of center of the body. After install of the kit, the car was centered. Lowering made the car very close to centered. You don't need the UCA for this spring kit. LCA brackets would be good but not really necessary either as the drop is moderate. I'll likely do brackets as the next weekend project however. Your stock drive shaft will be fine. Looks to me like you're another over-thinker like me brother.

Thank you, Just wanted to be sure, I need a few more posts before I can contact AM for code. Wanted to have all thoughts together by then. Only want to do the work once as well. I don't want to go to far, but this mod one looks good.
