    Default Bilstein B6 + Eibach Pro 30/30 - Sanity Check ...

    Guys,

    As I've mentioned before I am planning to lower my car by 30/30. At the same time I will renew the shocks of my car and fit some 345mm/292mm calipers and discs. I am considering getting Bilstein B6 for both front and rear and combine these with a Eibach Pro lowering spring kit.

    I've noticed that you guys are enthousiastic about lowering, Bilstein's and Eibach, but what exactly can I expect from upgrading to this combination of parts. Before I spend some money on the upgrade, what will I end up having?

    Regards,
    Hans

    H&R's are 40/30 aren't they?

    Pictures of 30/30 and 40/30 lowered cars, especially with 19"'s fitted are welcome guys. Can't wait to see the effect in real life ...

    Excellent looking! Anyone with respect to the lowering distance of H&R's? With 40/40 I am expecting more arc above the front wheel than at the rear ... These arc's are equal ...

    Another question. I am driving a remapped 2.2DTI with 160BHP/360Nm. When quickly accelerating, it feels like these 19"'s of mine are starting to dance (bump up and down on the road) and loose some grip as a result. Would this be better with Bilstein's and proper lowering springs?

    Regards,
    Hans
