It will look good mate lowered was looking at one few weeks back at Castle Combe looked good.

What drop have you gone for ?
Cheers Jason, it’s coming down 15-20mm at the front and 25mm at the rear. I saw this photo on Eibach’s instagram, sitting pretty nice there (y)

Does look so much nicer. I personally would drop it 20mm at the front if the rear is being dropped 25mm so you don't lose all the rake.
Any plans to put spacers on it ?

I’ve got a set of 8.5 x 19 inch Revo RF019s on the way so they should fill out the arches nicely. I was thinking about getting some 20mm spacers for when the 18 inch wheels go back on for winter.

Looks amazing!
How has it affected the ride quality? And are the adaptive dampers still as effective? Cheers
Eibach have done an excellent job with this kit. The ride quality is unaffected and the adaptive damping still works as it did on standard springs. Normal/Slippery modes are still nice and supple and Sport/Track noticeably firmer but not uncomfortable and no bouncing around like a pogo stick. I would recommend this to anyone 👍🏼

Thanks for the feedback Colin. I am going to get these fitted in the New Year.

Unfortunately I have had severely uneven front tyre wear on my ST diesel so think I will switch to the Eibachs and get the tracking reset while I’m at it!

Have you had any issues with uneven tyre wear either before or after getting the Eibach springs fitted? Cheers

Hi Henrik,

I had more wear on the inner edges of my front tyres on the standard springs. The original front tyres were worn out at around 14,000 miles. According to the Mk4 ST fb group poor alignment and excessive tyre wear is quite common.

I had the Eibach springs fitted and the alignment reset and then checked again after a couple of weeks. so far after 2000 miles the tyres seem to be wearing evenly.

I'll get the alignment checked again when the summer wheels/tyres go back on in April.

Cheers
