I'm going to put some pressure on the engineers for the final details we need to release this kit from R&D. I tried loading the one hero shot we had of the kit with no luck. I do have some decent info here in my build thread from my testing with the kit last year.

Handles like a dream at the moment!

Now to get rid of these heavy 19" CSL reps....

There is about 5mm extra travel with the barrel spring over the straight spring. Unless your car is really low you're likely fine. I use a straight 5" spring with the GC weight jacks in the rear of my car and the suspension still sees plenty of travel.

Oh, i doubt that will be an issue for me. To reiterate, 3 days in and the suspension still feels great and haven't gotten close to any harsh bottoming out in the rear, so all is well.

Thanks Treflip!

Hello there,

I got these coilovers installed and first of all I would like to give big thanks and credits to Tony in helping me to decide choosing these sexy coilovers.

I've been knowing Tony for about 6-7 years, and he's one honest, big hearted, and lovable person. He also has a huge knowledge about these cars specially the e36s and the e46s M3s. I absolutely trust this guy with a heartbeat. And I am really sorry for taking this long to share a brief review about the coilovers. I've been very busy lately and working 7 days a week for the last two years and my time is little limited.

As far as the coilovers now, I got them installed last year in August professionally by Nickolas Motor Sport, an independent BMW and Porsche service shop. I kept my OEM control arms and front camber plates but installed Ground Control Street Version rear shock mounts as Tony had recommended. The height is set to 13.5" front and 13" rear.

The quality of the coilovers is super premium and the handling is just as great as the quality. The car handles so good and rides amazing. the comfort is absolutely better than driving with 18" on stock suspension at it's best condition. these coilovers soak the road imperfection in such an unbelievable way. I had DINAN stage II suspension installed on my older M3 and even though they were so tight and car was nimble, the ride quality was very bad and very rough and bumpy specially driving on "metro Detroit" bad roads. On the other hand now with these coilovers, the ride is super sweet and comfortable. and guess what! the wife is happy with the ride comfort as well, which is a big plus bonus. Handling and cornering for a street use is just perfect and thats all i needed since i don't track the car. There isn't any single noise, click, rattle, etc.. that I could ever hear, and I'm super picky when it comes to that, trust me. Everything is beautifully tight and quiet.

Overall, I'm super happy with these coilovers and very appreciated to Eibach for creating such a nice product. Highly recommended! I am very grateful to Tony as well for helping me out choosing these coilovers.

This is the first I've heard of the endlink nuts coming loose. Have you tried using loctite? There's nylock on the nut so it should not come loose.

You'll want to have the suspension preloaded (on the ground or loaded up on an alignment rack) with the endlink jam nuts loosened. Adjust the length of the endlink until you don't feel resistance by shortening or lengthening. Once you find this sweet spot you can tighten the jam nuts and you're done.
