    lowering springs 2017

    I'm staying on a budget, so sticking with stock shocks for now until I order some KW V3. However I hate the "nose up" look of the stock suspension.

    Whifbitz has some Eibachs in stock now. I would like to compare the Tanabe GF210, Eibach pro and Tein S-tech.

    What are you running and how do you like them? Are you using stock shocks or aftermarket?
    Pics would be welcome (most pics on SF are down do the Photobuckets BS).

    Have the eibachs with the stock bilstien shocks and forget the rest! That setup will be the best you can get without spending thousands
    People ask why buy a Supra, Some people say it's because they have liked the car since it first came out, some say it's because of the fast and furious film. But for me it's simply because I have a pathetically small penis

    I had Eibachs and OE dampers on my UK spec and was very happy with them

    Bignum ad Dunk, thank you guys for the pics. Both cars look awesome!
    I've read the eibachs tend to settle down more over time. Have you experienced this?

    Can't say i noticed any settling going on, not once the car had been driven in a spirited fashion for a few miles

    No decent spring should "settle", if it does, it's junk. What usually happens is people loosen wishbone bolts then tighten them up again without the car's weight on the springs, so the bushes are under tension. They usually tear out of their sleeves and the car appears to settle lower over time, sometimes unevenly as one bush fails before another.

    Looks like the Eibachs are pretty popular. Anyone using Tein or Tanabe springs?
    All of them are around the same price as well.
