Does anyone have information on the spring rates for Eibach?

Is there any reason to believe that Euro cars weigh more or less than the US spec cars? Are the dampeners the same? I want to order the Euro spec Eibach's but I want to be sure our cars are the same...

I have strong doubts that the suspension components are different for the various regions. Wouldn't be tough to find out as you'd just need to source part numbers for the springs and/or dampers from each region.

I'm wondering why they want it to be lower than the European version?

I'm not sure. Possibly because they found that, based on past sales, the American audience prefers a slightly lower stance? Or perhaps it was based on feedback that Eibach Germany received? Your guess is as good as mine.

I also wanted to share the following update I received from Tony at Eibach North America:

"We are finalizing the designs now in engineering. We also realize a lot of people are anticipating this spring kit we're taking our time in developing something everyone is going to love.

I've requested our engineers send me the specs they've came up with so I can share with everyone else. Hopefully i'll have more details later today or this week.

Thanks a lot for these updates. I wonder if Eibach USA knows that Swift is probably going to beat them to market and snag most of the people who want a more conservative drop than H&R, though.

I may be wrong but my perception is that the Eibachs are better for a daily driver (due to use of progressive rate springs) while the Swifts would be better for track duty (due to use of linear springs). Therefore, they would target different audiences. Could anyone weigh in on this? Am I mistaken?

Hi,
Completely forgot to post the pics, this immediately after they were installed and I will not see them in person for another month. The part number in Europe for the Eibach Pro spring kit is E10-20-031-09-22.

Looks really good Denso , with all the mods you have done you have a fantastic car to come back too. I was caught between the Eibach and the ACS spring . In the end I went for the ACS as it is a slightly bigger drop both front and rear and bottled out on the warranty issue that was raised in a thread that you posted on........ I need to grow a pair lol

Again cracking looking M4 sir.

I really don't know why Eibach USA wants to do something different with their US spec M4 springs. The drop on the Euro version is perfect imo and the ride is great. Thanks to Baan Velgen and Supreme Power for awesome service all around.

yah that is a good looking drop, which i could see it on stock 19s. Would it be difficult to obtain the euro spec springs?

Go here to order. I placed my order and had the springs at my door in a week. I am located in Texas. Shipping was $88 so it was right at $350 shipped. Excellent customer service.

Kind regards,

Chris.
