    bilstein shocks and Eibachs are 'standard style' components..

    coilovers are a type of damper with a smaller diameter coil wrapped round on an adjustable platform...allowing for lower ride heights than 'conventional' dampers..

    the spring mod is a nylon sleeve fitted to the lower tail end of your Eibach front springs... Did you get one fitted when they were fitted to the car?

    you can feel if it's there on the bottom of the spring, if you take the wheel off... you're looking for a black or blue or green sleeve stuck on the bottom coil in the springpan..
