    I have a 2.0t AWD that I want to lower. Does it make a difference?

    Thanks
    Had them over 2 years on the RWD Sedan then moved them to my AWD Coupe last year
    Works perfect on both cars
    And I did use the bump stop on both

    OEM shock are plenty good unless your tracking
    You have to remove rear shocks to install the rear stops

    Wow canít beleive itís been so long

    Iím trading in my ATS for and XT4 this week so thought iíd do an update

    Investors had my same set of Eibach springs on 2 cars a 2014 RWD sedan for about 18months and then move them to my Premium AWD coupe for 3 years . I have about a total of 60 000 miles on them

    Iím happy to report they survived these 5 years and 4 winters and the shittiest roads youíll see in North America without any issues.

    The only caveat I would say is that this last winter was the worst with snow, freezing temperatures and potholes and I could start feeling the car getting way stiffer and some strange noises from the right rear springs/shocks which tells me theyíre about to go which is not surprising if you count the total miles and environment.

    So in conclusion would I recommend these absolutely without hesitation especially if you live south of the winter bel. Just remember though that the car is fairly low with them

    Specs on your wheels? See lots of wheel options for sedans, few for coupe

    Interesting. You list your wheels as 5x114.3 No issues with using those instead of 5x115?

    ^Pair them with a set of hubcentric rings. The vast majority of ATS owners I have seen who have aftermarket wheels went with 5x114.3. The PCD is literally a hair off. So many more choices and easier to sell later.
