In Reply to: RD Springs finally installed! Car very low!?! posted by TCD on January 31, 2001 at 22:06:08:

I am currently going through a similar situation with Eibach/Bilstein Sports and was wondering what measurements you have with your set-up?
When this picture was taken the gas tank and trunk were empty and the springs are set on the highest perch. The springs are around a year old and have sagged about an inch in that time(or 'settled' as Eibach says). The car has a reverse rake that gets worse with passengers and/or a full tank of gas. For a short term fix I will be installing the thicker 9mm upper spring pads. For the long term, I am going to get new springs (leaning towards H&R's).
I've spoken with Eibach and their warranty/return policy is pretty much a joke. Anyone with H&R's have any comments?
