Check front Bump Stops after lowering!!!!!
I developed a loud squeak on my front driver side after a year lowered on Eibachs. Found the shock compressed to the point the vehicle is riding on the front bump stop.

Check your stops if you've already lowered your vehicle. It can be popped out easily with a screw driver when the vehicle is jacked all the way up. Cut it in half.

You are not utilizing your shocks if you're travel is hampered by sitting on top of the stop.

If you haven't installed lowering springs, remove and cut them during the install or purchase a modified set from any suspension parts provider.

Re: Check front Bump Stops after lowering!!!!!
Are you now getting any marks where the wishbone would hit the underside of the inner fender? I have just a touch without cutting the bumpstop after full compression at speed. Worried that cutting the bumpstops and hitting a big pot hole could even dent it?

you must be on the SRT Eibachs...cause the WK Eibachs barely drop any at all
