It's about time you got with the program John...19's and stock ride height

Ordered my Koni's yesterday, just couldn't pass this up...45K on the stock SVT struts. They should go real nice with my Eibach's

Search the suspension thread....i have seen so many of them . I am looking at the same setup. A lot of people talk about the rear end "being too low" than the front. It's the way the fender is made. But i have seen many 'Tours with that setup and i thought it looked fine . Personal preference...hehe




I was about to ask the same thing. I've got Eibach's and Bilstein's. The rear went down fine but the front doesn't look like it did (even tho it did some). I'm just wondering if different struts would matter or if the Eibach's will make the stance stay the same. As I understand it, the springs determine the height, not the struts.

I like the way my car sits with the Eibach's and SVT struts...it's about 1/4" lower then SVTPete's car (Koni's and GC). It dropped between 1 3/4" and 2", NOT the 1 1/4" Eibach advertises...but I like it just fine



I'm looking for the Koni's to firm up the ride a little more and reduce dive under braking and deceleration. I know the ride will be a bit harsher but I'm fine with that

Holy crap! That will look HOT! I'd like to get mine an inch lower with the BAT springs, but GCs are just too low for me (old guy syndrome). You'll need to get a camber adjustment kit from BAT or be prepared to eat tires twice a year.

Sounds like our next meet is gonna be hella fun with all the new stuff we're gettin'! I've still gotta find & fit an SE side skirt kit. I'm told the brackets are the pain to find, and expensive at the dealer.
