I was considering swaping in the Eibach Prokit. Does anybody have a used kit for sale? Does anybody currently have them installed on their V? How is the ride? I know the look is prefered but will it make the ride bouncy, or will it be too low with 4 people in the car? I just want to know what everybody's feedback is on this upgrade? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Probably the most inexpensive way to lower your car. No problems with the ride quality but as with any stiffer springs it does stiffen things up. I hit railroad tracks at 50 MPH everyday and never bottomed out. You should have no problem with a car full. You'll have to modify the rear shock mount, as with any alternative offer for this car, or go with non-level shock like Monroe or KYB. I am running KYB in the rear with Eibach springs and GM racing sway bars and the shock is a nice match.

I have the Ground Control suspension which uses Eibach springs. Personally, IMHO, this is how the car should have come from the factory. A little stiffer, but much more enjoyable to drive.

So you do have to swap the shocks when you lower this car.

No, you just have to modify the rear shocks to prevent the Nivomats from readjusting the height back up.

I have the Eibach ProKit and I LOVE it! The front drops a lot and the back drops about an inch. Be sure that you get the spacers for the rear shocks or it wont drop much at all. I have been lowered for about 6 months and love it...no problems or complaints. Let me know if you have any questions.
