Does anyone know if the Eibach coilovers retain stock height on the highest setting? Sorry for the random question, just didn't want to start a new thread.

Hi Restang1,
Nice looking red chin spoiler. Where did you get it?

From the way I understand it the coil overs drop the car 1'' to 2.4'' so I think just putting them on you drop 1''. I haven't received mine yet so I can't truely answer this. Should be mid January. I'm ready

Hi Redstang.
I think is the CDC painted chin spoiler.
Could you please post a picture from the front of your car but at a lower level, to see the spoilers details, and how it looks in your car at ground level.

Yes it is the CDC preprinted one from American muscle. Paint on mine was perfect especially considering that it is a plastic part.

Looks good, can a chin splitter be added to the bottom? I think it would good on it.

Looks great. I might also get that chin spoiler, but will like to paint black the air intake area.

Wow, just that chin spoiler makes it look totally different. Like a body kit, instead of just a chin spoiler.

Anybody debating between pro kit and sport lines, choose spot lines. Never bottom out or rub on anything. These are great

I like h&r because they look like coilovers making both the rear and front even

People that say that still running on stock shock and struts, my friend has then on his 13 and it is smooth and not bouncy. It rides a little stiffer but more like a stock bmw.

Has anybody used one of the Ford Racing kits? They seem pretty complete and the price looks reasonable too.

The ford racing (non adjustable), eibach(non adjustable, and Roush all seem to be pretty much the same components. Price would dictate... None of them if I recall correctly came with a panhard bar or lower control arms. So keep that in mind as an additional cost.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think I read in the FRPP catalog that Eibach made springs and dampers for them?

No the gt500 strut mounts won't work on stock struts. And what exactly are you trying to do with two different springs?

Yes. If you lower your car. Adjustable just means they adjust in length not that you can make their point of connecting to the axle lower.
