Re: Spring Comparisons - Photos

Based on what i remember, as I have read about this before, the eibach alignment kit does not work. The JBA UCA's do work though. Do a search on JBA and alignment on this site and you will see other's experiences.

I see you got another 1/2", that's a drop!

So overall from original stock, you've dropped 1.5" in front and 2" in the rear, right?

Re: Spring Comparisons - Photos

Great thread on JBA control arms! Thanks for the link. Yes. I am very surprised I dropped another 1/2" in only a week's time. I have read nothing but negative feedback regarding the Eibach Camber Kit so I am now going to look into these JBA control arms. It sounds like the perfect solution. I can justify the expense by not having to prematurely replace front tires. I'll keep you informed as I go.

Re: Spring Comparisons - Photos

Road Magnets are much shorter than OEM so I'm not surprised you didn't have to compress them. By the time the nut is tightened down all the way on the strut you will have sufficient non-load compression on the spring.

Let us know how the front-end alignment turns out.
