Eibach pro drop kit before and after

Just installed the eibach pro kit on my 2014 limited. Wasn't a ton of pics when I was researching so here's for the next guy

I love it. Nice subtle drop. Was scared the back would sit higher than the front, but not the case at all. I'll update this after I put some more miles on it and get my new wheels on.

One of my concerns with the wider wheel combo was that they would stick out past the fenders... They do not.


Rear

Front

When I was researching, I found more questions than answers so hopefully this helps some people out.

Re: Eibach pro drop kit before and after

How is the handling with the Eibachs? Did you upgrade the struts as well?

Definitely is more responsive with a little less body roll, but that's also with a wider tire. Almost would say going over bumps and train tracks is barely rougher than stock. I was told the front struts were not completely necessary with such a mild drop but I kinda feel I should have just done it while I was down there. I out the bilsteins in the back.

Eibach kit - 28108.540

Rear bilstein shocks = BIL24-225427

Parts needed for rear shocks to replace self leveling shocks.

68029591AC - JOUNCE BUMPER
68029590AE - UPPER MOUNT
68029592AC - SHIELD
5181844AA - UPPER MOUNT PLATE

Measuring from center of the wheel to fender I got just under 1" up front and 1.5" in the rear. I'll measure again in a few weeks and see if it settles down any. I've only got about 35 miles on it so far

Re: Eibach pro drop kit before and after

I have the factory tow package (that I don't use) not sure I'm grasping all this. Besides the kit what else should I do?

Look at post #7. That's everything u need to order to make this work. The new, non self leveling shocks have a different mount than the factory ones, so U need to order those mounts to make it work.

If you need brand new rear oem non load level shocks I have a brand new set of you are looking for them.

Also you don't need the upper mount plate. If you are ordering the parts it's optional. And really serves no purpose.
