    Yeah, good idea to do all the pads, stops, etc., I should probably look at doing those too even though my car is still pretty new just so I don't have to worry about it in the future.

LOL Anyway, I hear to get the softer ride of the Eibach springs then the shocks should be replaced with slighty softer and was wondering if that's true and/or what good conservative shock/dampers there are?
    I ran that exact setup for maybe two weeks. hated it. Just too soft for the way i drive. I'd be doing 100mph on the highway and dive into an offramp braking hard and the car would just wobble everywhere under braking and bob and weave it's way through corner entry. Scary shit. My MR coilovers under the same conditions are SOLID. The setup your considering is for comfort and looks. It is a downgrade in "because race car" performance. Buuut, if ur looking for comfort and a decent drop without the aggressive driving aspect then go for it. They were def very comfy! Not the MRs are back breaking either. I soften the dampers a bit for the winter and it's comfy enough but still in full control of the car.

    Maybe swift springs, as Typhoon is planning, would be a more buttoned down setup. But the Eibach/Koni setup is kinda floaty. Or perhaps Bilstein B8s with Swift springs? I mean, MRs are only 1,000. Just save up for a lil longer. I've been through 30k trouble free miles and can't recommend them enough.

    How did the MRs stand up to our salt soup winters?
    Do you coat them with anything (i.e.; fluid film, Amsoil Metal Protector, etc.)?

    Great feedback, I was wondering that exactly, so thanks! Also considering ST height adjustable coilovers for like $760 from Whoosh... Not dampening adjustable but drop goes from only 0.2" on up, looking to dial in the best balance of comfort and decent performance, although won't be hitting 100, I'd like to feel pretty stable at 75-80 anyway.... But also, don't want to drop too much since I'm pretty sure I want 215 wide tires and even staying at 40 series there is 0.3" more sidewall there and don't want to rub... B6 are for stock springs so yeah looks like B8 with Eibach or the ST's probably...

    well it's all about maintenance, right? I clean them after every summer and winter. I fully disassemble the fronts for the winter cleaning. I coat the threads with silver anti-sieze at all four corners every time. It has anti-corrosive properties, goes on thick and stays put so it traps all the crud... and it's cheap!

    b4 anyone says anything I do know what anti-sieze is actually for and use it for dissimilar metals and all that. but it made sense and isn't as sloppy as the high temp lithium I used one yr long ago and regretted lol
