    Default H&R springs ?

    Is there anybody who has H&R -40mm springs in his car ? I'd like to know how much they lower the car and their hardness in comparison to Eibach.

    Mark1319 has them fitted and they sit lovely, search some of his thread's for picture's mate

    They are very similar to how the Eibach's feel, little harder than normal but not harsh in any way

    Had a quick look and the best I can find are these ones. One other thing to note is before it was lowered the tyres were 215/50/17 and after it was 225/45/17 so the gap between the tyre and arch may not looked to have changed all that much, but actual ride height had decreased a lot. Hope these help mate, I did have one pic with the 215/50/17's, but can't find it now

    H & R springs are here in denmark rated to be "softer" than most other marks. comfy ride not hard at all.. (cant talk about eibachs) but it will lower the car about 35 to 40 mm.

    With 215/50/17's just after they were fitted so they haven't settled at all.
