hi n welcome to the club
Hi there
It may seem strange, but we bought the car with eibach springs and found the car really Too hard and low!!!?!! so had it put back to standard ford parts but found the car now wonders and seems 'higher' that what it should be. Have checked the springs' colour coding and all seems correct, can geomatry and alignment effect handling? Thanx:cry:

Yes Steve, the car will have been tracked after the eibachs were fitted, so it needs re doing now its been put back to standard.
you do get quite a bit of body roll on the standard set up.

As PHILJB said the car geomatry and alignment would of been set up for the eibachs so would think having it done should solve the problem.Welcome to the club
