Question lowering springs

I am looking into getting some lowering springs- either the Eibach .8 inch front and 1.1 rear or the road magnet kit which is 1.8 front and 2.8 in the rear. I have seen more of you guys have the Eibach system. Does anyone have the road magnet system and could you give me some info on how it drives? Is the Eibach the better one to go with?

Thanks guys

I believe everyone does eibachs but that's not to say that road magnet isn't good. I have had road magnets and I personally hated them IMO. Of it was me I would do the eibachs in a heartbeat!

Ok that's what I like to hear. Because when I did the road magnets I could run over a quarter and tell your whether it was heads up! I'm afraid to lower my new one cause I don't want to sacrafice the awesome ride. So if you say eibachs are much like stock ride. I may have to go that route!

I bought both, Eibachs and RoadMagnets. I am trying the RoadMagnets first. I like the drop in the rear better on the RoadMagnets. If the ride quality really sucks I will go to the Eibachs. Either way I will post pics and review them for you guys when they are on.

Re: lowering springs

I just had the Eibachs installed last Thursday and they are still dropping a bit. So far, very pleased. Will post pix's in a week or so.

Re: lowering springs

I think if you had a spring shop take one ring off the eibachs they would prolly be perfect.
