I've been driving on my Eibach springs for about a week now, and I'm very happy. It looks great, corners great, seems to have less wheel hop at launch (but I did also replace the upper engine mount).

At first it seemed a little bouncy, but I think it's settling down a bit now. Also, you certainly feel the bumps in the road more, but what do you expect? It definitely feels like a race car now, and I like that.

I paid around $245 for the kit from a local shop, because I didn't want to wait. But I think if you look around on the net you can probably find it for closer to $200.

I'm taking the car to the track tonight. I'll take pictures and post them tomorrow.

The pictures probably don't do it justice, but I think it's a big improvement, and to me its very noticeably different. I think the pictures are so dark, that you can't really see the reduction in wheel gap, but there's only about an inch of gap now, whereas bone stock the car probably has close to 3 inches of gap.

Some day I might put adjustable coilovers on, and then it could be lowered even more, but it's already pretty low and I do have to be careful going up/down driveways and over speedbumps.

But it's up to you. Enjoy your car.

Enough already, that car looks saaweeeet dro, plus it brings out the factory ground effects.

I've lowered all of my Mustangs in the past and I was 100% sure I wouldn't lower my SRT-4, but you just changed my mind. :wink:

Normally eibach sells two kits a Pro kit and the regular kit. The Pro kit normally drops it a little bit more than the other and is a lot stiffer. Springs are by far the best suspension upgrade you can do for the money I did this so my 91crx and before I couldnt take turns faster than 40 without my tires screaming like hell now after just about the same drop I can nail turns doing 90 and not a peep from the tires. It will be a little bit stiffer than stock but thats the point to handle better. Im sure that with this upgrade you will scrape the bottom a little more but from what im told thats a guard under the car (thats what its there for). My car is roughly 2.5" from the ground so I am use to watching bumps so no big deal for me.
