Default New Eibach Springs ! Great Handling

Had Eibach Springs Installed today. 1.6 " drop in front and 2.0" drop in back. Love the look - lower sleeker better tire fender relationship, still have the rake and handling seems much inproved. Seems to track and find a line much better on freeways.

Could you measure the fender lip height through the wheel center and post your results. Also, do you have the chrome GT wheels?

Thanks.

LT - I installed mine myself, as I was quoted some $300 to have it done at a shop. (Something about 4 hours plus, and a 20% mark up since it was not their equipment, the springs.) In actuality, it's an easy install. I rented a spring compressor from Autozone and was good to go from there.

Oh .. and I bought them from Truckperformance.com At the time they were on sale for $200.

Hey Hammer, did you get an alignment, use a camber kit? I needed an alignment after my Eibach install, but not the camber kit as some do and some don't. $300 to install! I got charged $80.

That is 2-1/2" lower in the front and 2-1/4" lower in the rear than my stock GT.
