    I am wondering how you still like these springs after using them for a few months? I am thinking about getting them and am looking for some feedback. Thank you!

    Ditto. Reviews from anyone running Eibach springs would be great.

    Handling is very good on snow, too. No others news . I´m still happy with the springs.

    But if you want a stiff ride, the Eibach springs might be too soft.

    That sounds perfect. I do not want it to be stiff so it sounds good to me. I just want it a tad lower and to get rid of the wallowing on the freeway and certain bumps. Thank you for the info. I will probably order these in the next few weeks.

    Does anyone know the spring rate on these? I am comparing them to the RS-S springs which are 2.7kg/mm front, 2.24kg/mm rear.

    I don't think so. Eibach doesn't publish their rates.

    When we were looking the stiffest ones we got quoted were with Largus coilovers, something like 4/3kg f/r,; will have to dig for the #s.

    Out of things to consider besides the rate is total travel. TEIN basis rears are right rates (118lbs or 2.1kg) but too short and will bottom out on big bumps due to lack of travel.

    Thanks! So does the rate of 2.1kg of the TEIN's seem about right, other than travel? How firm would you describe it? I might take a risk and get the RS-R's since their rate is about where the TEIN's are.
