The eibach springs are good and improved the car greatly but the dampers are awful and there is nothing better to replace them with.
    Exactly my situation. Excited to hear how the Godspeeds turned out for Marklovski.

    That is if you are ever interested in taking Speck for a spin.

    Edit: because I am interested in seeing how your suspension kit works.
    You are curious about my suspension? I can tell you that it was much better last year. Last year it was nice and firm but now it feels a lot softer especially from the rear.

    So how are they now after using them for a bit?

    They've gotten better after some break it in time. I just drove really sharp and fast on tight bends, really nice and smooth.

    The ride feels weird at first, this is my first full suspension swap, but you get used to it.

    Still yet to have the ride height re measured since i was busy getting damage quotes.

    What do you mean by feels weird? Does it do odd things or is it just vastly different than the factory setup? Is the suspension noisier or does it crash at all over bumps? Sorry I have a million questions!

    Feels like a different car so to speak. Steering is much more responsive. I'm not saying there's nothing wrong or bad going on, I'm just not used to stiffer suspension.

    That is awesome. That is what I am looking for. Did the bounciness stop at all?

    How is the ride height adjustability? They don't really give a range.

    Yeah if you keep it at 10 to 16 adjustment then you should be fine. No unbearable bounciness from my ride. I'm assuming the bounciness problem comes from people who make it super stiff. Probably those STI and WRX guys you wonder why their suspension dies in a few thousand miles.

    I'm assuming you can maintain ride height, but i'd say expect to lower half an inch with these

    I just noticed the front wheels have a little bit more negative camber so I'm going to have to get an alignment.
