I have no ill will towards anyone or any company. Im just posting my opinion and facts as I know them. Imho the roadmagnets on my jeep are far superior to the eibach kit in handling, comfort, road manners and performance.
Im sorry some dont agree with that or have other agendas. I have no agenda. If I did I wouldnt provide this website and all the info contained here to 99% of those here for free.

Don't know, but I think he was saying he appreciated your opinion and input on this fine post!
P.S. I don't do Instagram so I don't know what was said. But in the name of Rodney King " can't we all just get along".. Life's too short boys

Great POST

I can't speak on any of this just yet but my new springs coming will fix a lot of the chatter.

Everyone needs to pay close attention to the details in this ^ post that's all I'm sayin'.

I feel everyone will be pleasently suprised with the attention to detail of the NEW performance orientated springs we have coming.

I've driven on em all and for some time too!!

I got to R&D the RM Extremes and Mids and demo the Eibachs and went with the Mids as our choice and in 3 years almost 800 sets sold to date 3 years later with grat reviews so I let the people talk and the Mids are the go to spring for the Jeep Period.

So people know the RM retains the OEM spring rate in case that is a ? I know it has been falsifyied by the compitition so they can sell their springs. I also want to mention towing since that has also been falsifyied the RM are 110% capibilitie with 0 issues!! Their was a few pic of people towing with them on instagram wish I would have saved those pics.

I've had all of them on a spring Dyno yep RM, OEM and eibachs so lets say I can explain what they are all doing in detail but can't share publically but if someone wants to call me I will explain over the phone just can't type it here LOL


OH This is the first time I have let the Mid level rate out to Scott as he just posted above.

I do want to say it's not exact what he posted but that's exactly how the Mids work this info was give by ME and is indeed a Fact!!

So I just wanted to make that clear so eveyone knows Scotts statement is factual not just Bla Bla Bla LOL

Re: '14 SRT, Front Suspension Collapsed?

i could rebut this all quite well...just go for a ride in a viper or a true Supercar (f40, CGT, etc). They all ride like shit. Bouncy. Stiff. THere's a reason for that... but it's pointless. It's like arguing about football with the fan of another team. Agree to disagree. We all have valid points

Scott, btw I was not being facetious when I asked about aluminum. I'm actively searching for better sources of aluminum, 316 and yellow brass.

Re: '14 SRT, Front Suspension Collapsed?

To anyone still following this thread, here's an update...

In summary, having replaced the original (failed) springs with their new E10-51-019-01-22 kit (although they've yet to reimburse me on all the associated cost (over $1k) I've foregone in order to swap out the original coils), Eibach agreed to pay over $4,000 to return my suspension to stock, purchasing new springs, an alignment, and a replacement wheel (after one of mine was damaged following the spin-out).

I'm back to stock now. That said, I have a brand new set of Eibach springs I'll be listing for sale in the classified section of JeepGarage, for anyone that's interested, along with a scuffed Spider Monkey wheel as well...
