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

Scott




Your's looks like mine in the rear but not in the front. I like yours much better. Are you thinking you'll still be as low all around with the new Koni's?"

Hey guys! Good to hear you're getting your struts so soon.

Just thought I would post an update and let you know that I have updated the list with those orders which have been shipped. The most recent 3 orders are being shipped today or Monday, I know it's a couple days later than it should have been, however, we ran into a minor supply problem that has been cleared up and you should receive your struts by Thursday or Friday of next week at the latest.

Again, we apologize for the delay.

Stacey

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

Scott




LOL Scott! I hadn't installed the shoes yet. So there, I wasn't riding around all high and mighty. I'm glad you got in on this deal. Your ride is gonna be even suhweeter!

It's a good possibility. You guys have so far filled EVERY one of the purchased spots so far. The NECO guys, for one reason or another, haven't jumped on this. :shrug:

Maybe because it wasn't for a body kit

They were waiting on my porch Friday (5 Nov)!

Now I just have to wait for my other parts. Wish I could throw them on, now, but in the meantime, I guess I'll just have to cuddle them while I sleep.
