Eibach pro kit

Ok so I've searched like crazy and can't find much info. I have an e90 pre lci 335i with sport package. No suspension mods thus far. I recently got my hands on an eibach prokit. What are thoughts of springs alone on otherwise stocks suspension? And how much should I expect for Install? And how do you like the ride quality? Thanks everyone.

get the eibach dampers to match your pro kit, it will ride great! I originally ran the pro kit springs with stock shocks and it was ok, and then later I installed the eibach shocks and it made a huge difference, wish I had done it that a lot sooner.

My stock sport suspension has 42k on it. Is it time to replace them anyways or should I go with just springs until I beat the stock shocks and struts up?

yea I would definitely throw some new shocks on also, you will have everything pulled apart anyway and you can save on the labor time from having to do it again later

i have had the eibach dampers and liked them, i don't know much about the koni fsd, but you do have the pro kit so i would match it with the eibach dampers, they are made for each other

FYI, Koni sells it's FSDs + Eibach as a combo deal. Heard great reviews and awesome pricing....

Eibach Pro Kit System

I bought the the Eibach Pro System kit off Amazon. Payed 650 shipped. Tire Rack sells for 675 but I would have had to pay sales tax and shipping. I will be putting on in the next couple of weeks. I will try to let you know the drop and how it drives once I do.

i had the same thinking but went for BMW perf kit for a few hundred more with the upgraded front sway.
i did read that pro kit is same as ZSP rates, just progressive. so thats where the comfort is.

The struts are probably already toast, and if they're not, they will be very, very soon after new springs are installed.

Do both.

I had the pro kit on stock shocks and struts and it was a little bit more harsh over bumps vs my current stock sport suspension. It was a very nice ride overall though. People who rode in it didn't know it was lowered until I told them. I prefer the stance of the pro lot but the ride of the stock sport suspension a little tiny bit more. Install depends on your area but probably $200ish for labor. So you may want to just get matching shocks/struts while you're in there. That is probably the route I'm going this time.
