H&R Race Springs + Pro Dampers

In the next few weeks I will be ordering some suspension for my SVT. I was going to go with the Sportline kit but after reading about them they do not seem to be what I want. I want something stiff and all around something that handles well.

I did some research and figured out that I want the H&R race springs. All I saw though was that people only put them on Koni's or KYB's. I was curious how good they would work on the Eibach Pro Dampers?

If anyone has this setup I would like some feedback on it.

Thanks

Yeah I am aware. I want something stiff, not mushy and soft.

I would highly recommend aftermarket dampers, your stock suspension wont last long, they arent meant for lowered springs. You can find some cheap dampers all over.

Eibach pro kit works well. Very stiff but not to the point were its unbearable to drive on a daily basis. H&R's will break your back or the car eventually. Just my 2 cents.

It's unlikely the Eibach shocks will effectively dampen the H&R race springs. The H&R spring rates are considerably higher than either the pros or sportlines. That's the reason you see Koni's used with the H&R's. I doubt AGX's can dampen them either before premature wearout occurs. Seriously stiff springs require seriously firmer shocks.
