Eibach Before and After

Hi Guys,

See attached photos for everyone use.
I love the stance but I will have to find a way to adjust the exhaust a bit because I am way to close to cats over speed bumps. Car is definitively firmer.

Photos 4-6: Lowered

Thanks for posting, it looks fantastic! I so badly want to do that. My last car was dropped with Hotchkis springs and the one before that had Eibach. On the other hand I'm liking not scraping things on sharply angled driveway transitions and speedbumps for once. But, it looks so much better with those wheel well gaps diminished and the car hunkered down a bit, particularly with our the Hot Wheels style rims we have on the '16 that make our 19s look more like 20s!

Lowering springs will (basically) turn Touring into Sport, Sport into Competition, and Competition into Buckboard.

The site still shows 1.2 / 1.3" drop but someone did mention a few days ago that the box says 1.3 / 1.4". Did they really change them? I'm curious about that since recent pictures of Eibachs look different to me (slightly lower).

I so want to do this to my '16 but I can't shake the worry over the MRC dampers and one of them busting a leak or wondering how long they'll last before they give out. They aren't exactly cheap to replace.

Question, I was just thinking about this the other day. With normal dampers, putting a higher spring rate coil on them could cause you to get bouncy because the damper isn't strong enough to keep the car from going through multiple bounces on big dips. Initially I was thinking as soft as this car feels in Tour, that bouncing would be a huge problem...but I wasn't accounting for the continual monitoring and adjustment the MRC gets you. Does the system see the car wanting to bounce more and firm up the dampers to stop it or does the car get a little bouncy in Tour with springs?

It doesn't matter how many times the dampers are adjusted. The fluid doesn't "wear out".

Mildly lowering a MRC car is no different from your typical vehicle without adjustable shocks.
