A shock designed to handle 6 inches of wheel travel has different specs than one made to handle 3 inches of travel.
I dont mean to start an arguement here, and I agree with what you have said above. But the travel of the stock shocks would only be reduced by about .75" in front and .5" at the back when switching from stock to eibach springs. And the spring rates of stock and eibach are quite close.
I dont think it would make much of a difference in normal or even reasonably fast street driving.
When I intalled Eibach long years ago the guy told the same but months later my shocks started to bottom out. I switch to bilstein sport and what a diference!
