I thinking about lowering my super coupe with Eibch springs. Would this change the ride at all? I thinks the car rides to firm now.
Thanks,

It could make it ride even firmer......

It will ride rougher than where you now are set. Guess you have to decide if looks or a smoother ride are more important. I went for the look and I beleive the way the tires look in the wheel wells was worth the firmer ride

i agree with ken,it'll be a stiffer ride.for me the difference in looks and handling outweighed the stiffer ride.

Make sure you have adjustable camber bushings on the rear lower control arms.....

They make for easy alignment, which you will need after lowering.....

Loosen the nut, twist the bolt, and see if the control arm moves back and forth.....

If so, you are good to go......

Vogtland springs are progressive, that may be something you can look into. More floaty, less jarring during regular riding. 1".
