  • what best to go for lowering

    What is the best to go for in springs, i heard eibach are prob best. is it ok to just uprate the springs with standard dampners, will this not affect the geometry in any way

    I have Eibach Pro-Kit on mine purely because its been TUV tested in Germany to work properly with the IDS+ system and isn't a bigger drop as some other spring sets.

    If you don't have IDS+ KW and KONI are also both quality brands.

                  Yes it can - they also rebadge their springs for IRMSCHER
                  Ring Eibach up for a chat if you have any concerns - they are very helpful and well informed
