i noticed on the sharkracing site that these springs lowered your car 35mm. this doesn't seem that too significant of a drop to me. anyone know what 35mm converts to in inches? thanks <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

35.000 millimetre [mm] equivalent to: 1.3790 inch [in]

The drop on these springs is not one of the biggest. However the stiffness you get out of eibachs are incredible. I have been running them on my car for over a year now, and alls I can say is the ride handling is tight! I recommend these springs to anyone that is considering buying them. They are well worth the money and you will notice a big difference when driving!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Eibachs have the lowest drop on the market for the Tib so if it is looks you are going for and you want the lowest ride possible these are not the right springs for you.

If it it is performance you want and exceptional ride quality then Eibachs will be the best choice around.

Does anyone have a pic of a Tib with Eibach's on it? I'd like to know how it looks not what it "says" it will drop it.

I love my eibachs and wouldn't use anything else. There's others on the market now with lower drops but I didn't wanna scarafice a niec ride. H&R has some out now, they're nice springs, might wanna check those out. Ihave the only lowered tiburon when I'm from and I get people talking about it all the time. Go with the eibachs! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Looks nice.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> Would you say that the outside diameter of your tires are the same as the outer diameter of the stock tires. I want some performance springs but I want the least amount of drop as possible. Something like 3/4 to 1" would be perfect but I don't think that exists.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/disapprove.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

ok the stock tires, and rims with 205/40/17 are almost identical in diameter. So what you see in the pic is the result of the springs on 17's. I have never rubbed, and I am still running on my stock shocks.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

Any problem with alignment? I'm also considering the Eibachs for spring. I have 17's and always worry about rubbing. do you think that It'll have problem when I put in my Zefiro kit.

When ever you take the suspension apart, you have to get the car aligned no matter what. They aligned my car with no problems, and actually I was still with in the -5/+5 limit that you are allowed by the alignment spec. I recommend when going for an alignment, to put you stock wheels back on if you still have them. If not just be carefull, cause the alignment rack could damage the 17's

Hey ^saint, changing the tires would not lead to missalignment? As far as I know when you meassure the specs the tire size and how it seats on the ground (even when the overall diameter is nearly the same) can influence on the results. Or not?

It all depends on the Tire/Wheel size that you choos. I myself run on stocks for winter which are 195/55/15's, and for summer I am on 205/40/17's. The difference between the two is only a few millimeters. Now if you go on a 19" Rim then you might need to look into getting an alignment for your suspension.

When doing any suspension work you have to remember and think how the tire will sit on the ground. If the tire sits in-ward or outward, then your car will pull one way or another, also the wear on your tire might be uneven; this leads to quick use of tires.

I have a 2000 Tiburon and am very intrested in getting some eibach springs for it. My stock suspension seems kinda loud to me when you go over bumps and what not. I am just wondering for all of those who already have eibach springs if this changes at all? Thanks for any info.

Loud???how do you mean? Do you hear the shocks compressing or something?

My car sits nice, handles real nice, and I have no problems with them. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

As in loud i mean like when you go over bumps compared to other cars suspensions that i have ridden in. When you go over bumps the car physically makes more noise than others. The thump thump(as you are going over the bump) seems lounder to me than other cars. I know the tibs have fairly hard suspensions and that could just be it. I was just wondering if when putting on the eibach springs this changes at all.

dude, u don't want a soft suspension! ull hit a bump and ur car will bounce down the rest of the street, such as if u cut ur stock springs <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0> anyways, are those "adjustable springs" on ebay alright? like would it just be better to get say eibach's, and if i want adjustability, to get real coilovers, than to get adjustable springs? ...whats the diff?

Hey Saint, what about camber adjustment? Did you have to have a camber kit after you drop your springs?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
