Mid level drop lowering question

Re: Mid level drop lowering question

Your installer may struggle with the front left shock but the rest of the corners are easy also do the alignment some 400 miles later. i've had them on for a few months now and even with winters these springs are awesome. Good luck and enjoy.

Re: Mid level drop lowering question

Make sure front is front and back is back. You can't eye ball it. Must check the part numbers.

Springs are marked F and R. Ride quality is still very good and way better than the WK1 srt8.

Re: Mid level drop lowering question

Re: Mid level drop lowering question

i went the eibach 1 front 1.8 rear I think . any ways with 22's they do scrub out.
benn in 2 days and settled a bit lower and notice it hits a bit more so just be mindful of that if you 22 as well.
the front was looking lower so i didnt put them in.

Re: Mid level drop lowering question

What tyre size are you using on your 22's that are rubbing out?

I was talking to Chad from Black Ops and he guarantees that with the Road Magnets mid with 305/35/22 will not scrub.

check the pics, on 305/35/22 and the eibach 1.8 rears i go to 800mm and i didnt put any in the front as its at 815mm ish.

But the rears to scrub out more than i like. do they make coil overs for these things you can adjust ??
