Hi, I assume this has been answered before but hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. I had the eibach kit installed on my 05 cts v last week. The front looks great but there is a gap in the rear. Tech support at Eibach told me that I have to have non-leveling dampers installed in the rears. Does anyone know where I can get these? Thanks

I've got to put my kit on too, worried about that rake look. I would like to just lower the rear enough to get that even look. I have the spacers.

I got my spacers from forum member NELS. The spacers help but i'd like more of a drop in the rear. Front looks perfect.

Thanks a bunch. Does anyone have any pics of an eibach setup with Nels spacers in the rears?

Let me get this straight. We need the spacers to make the springs work. How many is up to the individual. So would more spacers in the front and only 1 in the back give you the best option of a leveled look? Or is there 1 spacer per spring?

Spacers are only used to prevent the rear load-leveling Nivomat shocks from pumping the rear stance back up. It's required in the rear, if you want to lower it.

It's not normally used or required in the front, although, you could fab some up to achieve a higher stance in the front.

The two sets of spacers would just be for different purposes - front spacers (under springs / atop spring perch) to raise height; rear spacers (within upper shock assembly) to prevent shocks from raising height.
