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

for sure...you should have a shop look at the camber though. They may be able to get it close

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

Thats what im thinking. I drove it to work today to see if I can get the front to settle and noticed the camber walking up to it on my lunch. Its not terrible but you can see them angle in at the top

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

I would like to know how does the ride feels after installing Eibach Front on the rear?

Is it more comfortable than when it was stock? or it is more harsh?

Cause I bought the springs and I don't know what's the best to do... Lower front and rear or just rear?

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

With the jeeps electronic dampening the ride is the same even if you lower it. It comes down to preference as to what you want as far as stance and height

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

Hey guys, I accidentally put the Eibach fronts on the rear recently. Thought would share the pix to add to this thread. Crazy camber looked kinda comically mean from rear, but dumb side on with stock fronts. Rears rubbed the guards with mates in the back (22x10.5s & 315/35s).

IMG_4823b_DroppedRrCamber.jpg IMG_0174b_SideDroppedRr.jpg

Unlike what some have said, I HATED the ride. Was bouncy and lost front feeling from reverse rake. Currently just Eibach rears, but looking to try the Eiback fronts / stock Fronts-in-rear setup soon

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

One last question for those who have installed Eibach front on the rear.

Is the ride feels bouncy and bumpy more when you are driving?

I wanna install the springs but I really don't want the car to become more stiff than it is or more bouncy.

What your advice to me?

Install both springs or just place the front Eibach to the rear? or do something like move the stock fornt to the rear and install Eibach front to the rear?

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

I have installed Eibach front in the rear and I think the ride height is not right for me!

I have been reading around the posts through this thread and some said the car will go lower in the front by time even if I don't lower it.

So, is this true or i got the thing all wrong?

The thing I don't like now about the car. It's stiff and nice at the back, but bouncy and bumpy a bit in the front :s

If I don't like how it is behaving I'll just install all the springs putting Eibach front at the front and Eibach rear at the rear

Check the attachments the first pic shows the car before and then the other picture shows after installing the springs.

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

yeah...the eibach fronts drop the rear too much. the camber is terrible and not correctable at the moment. I would try the stock fronts on the rear or just put the eibachs front on the front and the eibach rears on the rear. Have a look at my Jeep....it has the full eibach drop on it.
