View Full Version : Eibach Pro kit Spring Question

Thu, Feb-03-2011, 01:04:28 AM
I was thinking about using Eibach Pro kit springs to drop my car up front is .6 and rear is .9, the drop seems pretty minimal I was wondering if camber kit is needed and if this drop will blow stock shocks

Your shocks will not blow, however they will wear faster (if I had to guess, I would say maybe 20% quicker).

No camber kit needed.

You'll need basic metric hand tools, power if you're pimping and a set of spring compressors are a good idea to have before you take you car apart just in case.

Work one wheel well at a time. Start with the back, they're easier. Open your hatch and remove the strut tower coverings on both sides and loosen but don't remove the two bolts. Remove the bolt on the bottom of the shock near the control arm. Take the top nuts off now and remove the bolt holding the spring to the assembly.

If you have an impact gun, just lay the assembly flat on the grass, protect your body and face by putting your foot over the assembly and loosen the bolt until it comes off and the spring slides away on the grass.
