H&R Sport or Eibach Pro - on 19's?

Which is a better option for quality, performance and 19" wheels ( to avoid rubbing )?

Your thoughts and experiences are appreciated.....


Thanks

Rubbing will depend on wheel offset and tire size. As for the 2 springs, quality and performance are relative to what you want out of the set-up. Both make good springs. H&R's are a tad lower and stiffer than Eibach Pro Kit springs. Depending on which dampers you pair them with, Eibach's will lower your car and keep a zsp-like ride characteristic. H&R's will be slightly siffer requiring a different damper set-up.

The key to any suspension set-up is pairing the right springs with the right dampers.

I've had both. IMO, Prokits don't look significantly different than sport springs.

I pulled the Prokits out and put H&R Sports in. Perfect drop. They are a bit stiffer feeling in the front but overall my ride quality is great. To note, I do *NOT* have runflats... I have 19" Nitto Invos and they ride AWESOME. YMMV with runflats.

A very subjective topic, but Id personally like EPK. I think H&Rs are too low, I was scraping stuff all the time with them. But if you like low, they are low. EPK seems more like the car should have been with ZSP, low, but not crazy low.

That's a complete system. $1k for a complete quality suspension set-up is reasonable esp if you consider it includes roll bars. You could do it for less and leave out the roll bars. Check with a few of the sponsors on here for price, you could probably save some $.

I am looking for roll bars anyway, I've been wanting to go all OEM but all the better deals are aftermarket. I'll probably visit these guys since they're 10min away from work.

Eibachs barely drop on the E92. Depends on what you want. If you don't HAVE to have flush, then go with the pro kit I guess. H&R sport is almost a perfect drop. No matter what, when you drop the car that much, you are going to sacrifice comfort. But like someone said above, get some good dampers (Koni yellow or Bilsteins) to go along with them and you'll be happy.

There is no cup kit for the E92....

This kit is or the Pro System would be the way to go if you want the perfect spring and shock balance.

The Pro System doesn't slam it. It is just a Pro Kit with the Eibach damper set to match the springs. Pro Kit + Pro Damper = Pro System

I've personally have had both also on stock damper and IMO eibachs are perfect on my e90 335 I'm just waiting for my struts to give out to get yellows. Here's my set up frt is 19x8.5 et35 with 235/35 falken 452's rear is 19x9.5 et35 with 275/30 falkens also front has 3/4 finger gap rear has 1 finger gap but I have small hands. Lol with the h&r's I used to hit a frt bolt that attached the bumper to the fender tried shaving it but still hit on big bumps eibachs all good around hope this helps you a bit.
