Eibach Springs Review
One of the first upgrades most people make after buying a car is to change to a set of aftermarket wheels and tires, thereby enhancing the car’s appearance and performance. While the aftermarket wheels and tires provide additional stopping and cornering traction, your car’s stock suspension might be unable to handle the increased traction, thereby limiting any gains from the tire upgrades. In order to get the most out of high performance tires, you might need to make a suspension upgrade as well.
If you decide to upgrade your suspension, one of the best options you will find in the market is the Eibach Pro-Kit. Compatible with most popular street cars, the Eibach Pro-Kit is designed to dramatically improve the appearance and performance of your vehicle. The Eibach Pro-Kit springs lower a vehicle’s center of gravity by up to 1.5 inches. This has the effect of reducing the car’s squat as you accelerate, reducing body roll as you go through corners as well as preventing excessive nose-dive as you brake. On top of that, the Eibach pro-Kit reduces the fender-well clearance, giving the car an aggressive, good looking appearance that you are going to love.
To ensure there’s as little disturbance to the car’s ride quality as possible, the Eibach Pro-Kit utilizes progressive spring rates. Additionally, the spring rates on the Eibach Pro-Kit are generally higher than you will find on stock springs. This improves the vehicle’s handling by controlling body roll. The Eibach springs are also built in such a way that they reduce the risk of bottoming the suspension, while still maintaining the vehicle’s load carrying capacity.
If you are looking to improve your car’s handling, responsiveness and braking, you cannot go wrong with Eibach Pro-Kit springs. However, it is good to note that the Eibach Pro-Kit might achieve less lowering on cars that come with factory lowered suspension, such as the M-sport or the GTI.
