That would be great. I think I read that the Eibachs have linear fronts and progressive rears. Lots of information being thrown out in threads, so I'm not sure what information is correct. If you know that a specific product is linear or progressive, let me know and I'll update the list.

Good idea. I would recommend adding the drop or drop range for each set (and whether that drop is for F80 or F82).

It certainly is. A higher spring rate reduces squatting and diving, while also enhancing cornering ability. Lowering the cars center of gravity is also a big plus.

Only if the springs dont go too low otherwise the shocks are no longer in the proper operating range.

Positive reports coming back from the AC Schnitzer springs....we are curious to see how the Eibach USA springs will perform.
