    TEINs are progressive, and for initial part they are softer than 2015 OEMs. At progressive part they feel about the same or slightly stiffer than OEMs. Springs definitely too short and even set at highest rear adjustment needed polyurethane spring insulators to level car. They bottom out even on empty car. But they reduced roll, and with camber kit/no ARB handling-wise car is close to neutral. I am thinking about cutting OEMs and getting set of help springs to replace rear TEINs.

    Just realized that Eibach's are progressive in the rear on our car, that's why they don't give a spring rate as its variable. Still deciding between Eibachs and RS-S. Now leaning towards Eibach's due to the OP's positive review.

    I just ordered my Eibach springs from flea bay. Looking forward to having them installed. I also got the Ultra Racing rear sway bar and front strut tower brace on the way.

    Dude, I am so excited. I want it to warm up outside so I can put everything on the car. These wheels are coming too at the same time.

    As soon as it is done there will be pictures to share here. My next big purchase will be the LED tail lights.

    I think that it will. There is a lot more happening to it over the summer too. Going to have windows tinted, projector headlights and the addition of some red accents (mirror caps logo's and a custom vinyl that says Mirage for the door bottoms) here and there. Kind of like a Nissan Juke Nismo.
