Seriously, it looks so good. Springs are same length but the metal is smaller diameter so im assuming the coils compress more and thats where the drop comes in. Ill post some pics tomorrow as I got started late so it was dark when I got done

Re: What do you guys think about Eibach front springs on the rear?

Just realize that the measurement changes from side to side. I think it has something to do with the suspension system. I can be 1/2 up on one side one day and just the opposite another day.

Re: What do you guys think about Eibach front springs on the rear?

pics as promised


rear is actually right at or maybe a hair below 32" from ground to fender, front is down to 31 1/2" so I think it will settle to 31 1/4" which im happy with.

Re: What do you guys think about Eibach front springs on the rear?

I had serious camber issues with the eibach fronts on the rear. I went ahead and did the eibach rears....on the rear for now. Im gonna talk to Lewis Perf. tomorrow about their panhard and lower/upper control arms. I got my bwoody endlinks in today too. Not too sure about the fronts. Ive got a little angle where it connects at the sway bar.

Re: What do you guys think about Eibach front springs on the rear?

what do you guys think the long term effects on the strut will be since this will change all the compression and rebound values.

Re: What do you guys think about Eibach front springs on the rear?

With all this talk about front springs on the rear and rear springs on the front has anyone considered the spring rates vs. the static sag (effective drop). Does anyone even know the spring rates on the factory suspension?

I'm also confused on how a panhard rod has any application on an IRS rear?
