Need to Cut Front Eibach Springs Anyone Done This?

Even with the lower height still too much of a gap when compared to the back. Looking to taking a 1/2 coil off.

With Eibachs would this compromised the sping performance?

Thanks!!

NO.Or not enough to notice. I did it. Half a turn, with Sports.

A spring's a spring. Have at it.

What it will do is stiffen the front relative to the rear (a little bit)

and make the car ever so slightly more prone to understeer.

Which is pretty safe for a street car.

TOBY What rate springs are you running on the front ?Im trying to reduce a bit more understeer on my car and about to play a bit more with the springs.

Sorry to rob the thread!

I find that keeping the front and rear spring rates about the same

seems to be a good, neutral starting place. That means that the

rear WHEEL rate's about half of the spring rate, but it seems to work...

Do I just cut 1/4 of each end to make it 1/2 coil removed, right?

TIA

Justin

depends if they are progressive or not. If linear just cut one end and be done. I have never had eibachs so I dont know what they are

I want a low stance so I will probably do some cutting.
