Opinions on Granetelli vs Eibach springs

I am close to lowering my 15 mrc SS. I have seen all the pics of both setups but have yet to read if anyone has tried cars with the springs back to back? I seem to remember reading that the Granetelli springs ride better, but I don't remember where I read that. Any feedback is welcome!

I went with eibach because of the ride height. I didn't want the car to sit too low. To me, in the pictures, the rear looks a lot lower with the granetelli springs. I'm happy with my decision.

Granatelli springs are out of stock for the foreseeable future. As in no more will be made until 25 sets are pre-sold.

Are there any other springs out there? I'm sure there MUST be some other options down under...

I agree. In pics the Granetelli springs look lower in the rear.

I guess that might settle the discussion.....

Other than coil-overs, none I know of.

Not necessarily, as they mag mag ride simulators. You'll lose the mag ride functionality, but there won't be any "Service Suspension" messages on the DIC.

So, you can install coilovers on '15-'17.

Do you think there will ever be a coil over setup that still retains magride?

You can probably add adjustable lower perches and linear springs with little trouble, but you would need to figure out the upper spring perches. You might be able to find a set of camber plates with the correct sized bearings downunda, or have a suspension shop with G8 experience make them for you.

That setup would allow you to make greater alignment changes, ride height changes/corner weighting, custom spring rates, custom spring lengths, and of course keeping the MRC.
