I think the suspension is great in stock form on my svt but I autox it and am looking for an advantage. Is the eibach prokit plus an improvement? That's the only kit I am looking at right now with my $$$. What do you guys think? Much stiffer?
I would say no. I havent tried it but the spring rates are barely any better then the svt. I would wait to get something better then that.
Just my 2 cents. (i dont really know what im talking about.)
I had the prokit spring and stock SVT struts...... DO NOT DO IT
The spring rates are nearly the same as stock SVT springs. When you lower it (Prokit = 1") you will bottem out over every bump dip and hard corner.
If you like Eibach go with "Sportlines" and the struts to match
I got a great deal on Intrax springs, and Eibach struts and very happy now
That's because you only got the springs.
I got the kit with shocks and struts which is desighned for lower springs.
I have NEVER bottomed out my car with this kit and I drive hard. Plus I go to NYC AKA combat town from time to time. If you can't bottom out there, you basically won't.
Don't get me wrong, I try to avoid big potholes and such, but you can't avoid everything.
I give the kit a big
. If you get the whole kit, you will be very happy. Getting part, won't do it.
I said it in another tread, get springs and shocks that are for lowered cars. Even if you can't get the shocks now because of money, get them within 2 months or so.
I have had several people ride in my car and they tell me how nice my car rides with the drop.
I feel it's the best you can do for a daily driver.
I would go with coilovers if I decided to autocross seriously, but I don't plan on doing that, so I should have this on my car forever.
