Swifts are installed and look perfect! I honestly can't tell a difference in how the car rides compared to stock, which is exactly what I wanted.

I opted for the emmotion springs from ED. So far, I have been very happy with them. Ride quality feels stock, no noises or anything odd. I rode in a friend's car with Swift and the ride was too harsh for my liking, which ultimately made my decision.

Both have positive reviews and photos posted of what the drop would be. Can't go wrong with either one

Im deciding on this as well. I see that this is an older thread. Most of you should have at least a year with the Swift or ED setups. Any follow up feedback? Any issues with shocks wearing out prematurely?

How much does ED springs drop

Why is Eibach pro kit not in the discussion?

Your rear looks a tad higher than front, is it due to pic? Because if u drop the front more than rear the car should look almost equal in height

ED is .3" rear 1.3" front

Swift is .4" rear 1" front

I suppose Eibach is not in the discussion bc OP wanted a comparison be these two

I just ordered ED and I am having them installed this Saturday. I'll take before and after photos and report back on ride quality

FYI. I just realized that F80 and the F82 have different drops in the rear. For the M4 its .9 rear on both Swift and ED

Great point, my bad for not clarifying that those were measurements for the F80

thanks for the info.

1.3 " in the front is a really big drop in my opinion. I know it looks great but it would be lot of scraping as a dd.

Any idea if there's rubbing w/ 15mm spacers?

No rubbing but pretty low in front. With mp front lip I am sitting about 3 1/4 inches from ground. Love the look of ed springs also had ms springs on before and the ride is a tad softer than the ms. I have 18mm front and 15mm rear.
