Just spoke with Jason in tech support at H & R. Apparantly the springs are on the boat from manufacturing in Germany and they have confirmed that arrival will be in a few weeks. He said they still needed to work the Nivomat solution but have developed a work around for other applications on Escalades, BMW's etc.

Should I hold my breath????? :hmm:

I hope that they are able to come up with something ASAP. I really want to lower my V and I am about to pull the trigger and Give Chuck Mallet $4K for the Penske setup. I smell a divorce in my near future.

Must be a paddle boat.

Perhaps H/R has just missed the boat.

I hear you on the "few weeks". At least their tech support can talk intelligently about the springs. I called Eibach and their "solution" is to replace the factory shocks. NICE...:banghead:

They would've sold hundreds of kits by now if they didn't wait so long. I'll be amazed if it's true they will be here in a couple of weeks.

It's too bad Eibach and H&R don't read this forum, or the FAQ. The writeup for WildWhls Nivomat mod with pictures and spacer dimensions is complete an over at Reed's site. It would be just as easy to include some poly spacers, than to put a new bumpstop for the non-load leveling CTS shocks (that Eibach includes in their kit). The genius is in it's simplicity. (Thanks again, WildWhl!)

Wow...that boat must be a luxury yacht with some detours (read - the entire universe)...I've heard this line for over a year (can we say year"S" now?).

WW out...and lowered for months, happily, cheaply, without aftermarket vendors - and to EXACTLY my specs and preference :thumbsup:

Actually the new bumpstops in the Eibach kits go in the front. They behave more like "secondary springs" in addition to being the actual bump stop point. (You'll see that they are longer than the stock bump stops.)

The rears just use the stock bump stop since the spring is separate from the shock.
