Is anyone running the eibach or nuespeed springs yet. I have a 05 Lancer that runs progress spring but the ride is soooo bouncy. I am trying to decide if I want to order the euro springs or aftermarket. I just can't take bouncing back and forth to school.
40mm looks good to me...but I *LOVE* the ride in my gti at stock. I had a 2004 Jetta with H&R race and even though it looked great the ride was a little harsh. I swear I read that the dampeners on the NA GTI are Eibach, I could be mistaken but I am sure I read that so I wondered if going with an Eibach sports which I think are about 40mm would be better with the stock dampeners?
I just want the car to be as firm, yet forgiving as it is stock....what actually decides that..spring rate? if so, anyone know the spring rate on the stock springs?
Also: my car has less wheel gap in the back so I would presume that slightly lower in the front would balance it out no? Where do the % stiffer figures come from listed above and the ones not listed @ % mean same as stock or not known?
sorry, I am saving to get it lowered and don't want the headaches like the first car I had lowered...
Are we certain that the euro version is only 0.5 inch lower? Because compare these two pictures, one is with H&R sports which is supposed to lower 1.5 inches but it looks like the wheel gap is the same as this other picture of an euro GTI with 17" wheels?
