Default Eibach Springs for S80

Anyone have the Eibach Pro Series springs for an S80? Site says that it drops 1.2in but after talking to a friend who has them, his Eibachs dropped his car 5in when it was allegedly supposed to drop it 2.5in. (However, this was for a VW VR6).

Eibach makes great springs, I liked mine I had on my old car. I dunno' af any car that could be dropped 5' with out the car sitting on top of its tires in the hub. So I doubt it.

Yeah I hate to break it to ya but what he is telling you is kind of hard to swallow. Sounds full of mis information to me.

You will be happy with your springs.

So, I should expect no more than 1.2"?

Maybe 1.5 to be safe. If your shocks are really worn, that may cause it to sit a little lower than expected. But not that much.

I agree with Lab_Rodent 1.5" max but nothing more.

You can yes.

Bilstein HD's are good and so are KONI's. KONI FSD's are even better then regular KONI's.

If you want to stick OEM style but go aftermarket Bilstein TC's are the way to go. They are just like your OEM ones but made by Bilstein.

IPD USA sway bars would be a great suspension upgrade as well as a QBM strut bar conversion kit. As well as some IPD USA HD endlinks and or QBM Extreme endlinks.
