H&R or Eibach ? Need You Help

Hey Guys imma drop my car this week and i got to think of which springs to go with today so i can order them tommarow.. i heard the H&R sport springs bounce ? is that true ? but i want the H&R cause they drop more than an eibach.. the reason i dont want eibach is because whats the point of paying that much for a 0.8 drop ?

the h&r's are perfect but you need to pair them with good dampers. go with koni yellows.

the Eibach drop is perfect, handles great n its softer. Not sure how the H&R are with speed bumps, but no problems with Eibach.

OP, if you really want to drop it that bad then make sure you do it the right way the first time. Don't cheap out because it may just end up costing you more in the long run when you realize you've made the wrong decision in the name of up-front cost savings.

It's personal preference based on your need that determines what springs to go with, but equally important are pairing the springs with the correct damper. Pairing any spring with the incorrect damper will result in poor ride quality e.g. bouncy, etc.

Eibach also offers the Sportsline spring, which is lower and stiffer than the Pro Kit. Also check out swift springs.
