Eibach pro vs sport springs

Currently have the pro springs but I was wondering if the sport lines would have any benefit over them on the track paired with some koni yellows? Or should I just stick with pros and yellows?

I have eibach sportlines on my car with factory shocks and struts and they drive perfectly. I would say that the lower ride height would help slightly at the track but I'm no expert. It just depends if you think it's worth the money to change them out for the small differences.

Had the sportlines with stock shocks and struts for a while. Then got the koni adjustable put on. There's a huge difference in feel with the performance shocks.

I can take a corner and it's stable versus before where it would bounce around on imperfections.

But to answer your question, sportlines are extreme. Unless you track your car or really want that slammed look, you don't really see a benefit by going with a sportline.

Do you think they would rub with 286/35/19 in the rear?

Probably a +35mm will hit the inside fender. 2011-2014 Mustangs typically run a +45-50mm offset.

I believe the stock GT Premium 19" rims are +48mm. I'm running a 20x10 CS40 wheel with +45mm offset and that actually hits the outside fender a bit when I was running 305/35/20 MT Street Comps. I rolled the fenders and it still rubbed on the passenger side.

I now run 305/30/20 Nitto NT555 G2 and there is absolutely no rubbing.

You will likely rub the inside fender because of the +35mm offset but that also depends on your drop. Mine are the sportlines which brings the tires that much closer to the fenders. If you have 1.5" springs then you may be ok but I still think a +42mm would be better for you.

I have the pro kit and I'm currently on 275/35 with +33mm and no issues
About to put some 285/35 sport comp2s on the rear
Just not sure how much of a difference the extra .5 inch drop would make if I pull the trigger

Yeah but then again a 275 is a narrow tire. If you go wide on a 10.5 you might not have any issues. But my question is why people want to stretch the tires out like that.
