    Re: Eibach springs

    Does anyone know how replacing the load leveling shocks with regular CTS shocks affects the car's computer (if at all)?

    Re: Eibach springs

    I got a question, I have a 2005 CTS with the regular suspension. Do I need to replace my shocks, I don't know if they have the load leveling or not. Also, can someone provide a link to buy the Eibach springs for the CTS. Thanks

    Well, I finally got it done over the week-end. I have the CTS with sport suspension which includes load leveling. I installed Eibach lowering springs. The front was perfect, but the rear was sitting up high. So I replaced the load leveling shocks with regular CTS shocks, (GM part number 25770612). The rear is level and man, does the car look sweeeet!... I will post pics later. Basically, the switch to normal shocks solve the problem. I also have 20" wheels. I get some rubbing every now and then but I can live with it!!!

    This is the final product..Eibach Lowering Springs, with 20" wheels. I replaced the load leveling shocks with regular CTS shocks and the car now sits flat. Here are some pics.

    Re: Eibach springs

    Where did you guys get some of your eibach springs. I can buy them off ebay for $230 including shipping or online for $20 more. Was wondering if that would be a good deal. Thanks
