SPORTLINE KIT (SET OF 4 SPRINGS) FREE SHIPPING

# 4.13435



Front: 1.5 in
Rear: 1.5 in
More Info...
SPORTLINE Kit (Set of 4 Springs)
Extreme Performance Meets Extreme Style
Race-Car Like Handling
Lower Center of Gravity
Stop Quicker, Corner Faster and get Better MPG!*
Million-Mile Warranty
Eibach SPORTLINE is the extreme-performance spring set created for the extreme enthusiast - the one who craves a race-car attitude for maximum street performance - with the lowest possible drop, but with the exceptional ride quality you expect from Eibach.

Engineered with the same care as our PRO-KIT springs, Eibach SPORTLINE springs achieve legendary handling by aggressively lowering your car's center of gravity, using our precision - engineered progressive spring rates.

By radically lowering your car's center of gravity, our SPORTLINE springs dramatically reduce squat during acceleration, body roll in corners and nose-dive under braking. By using our proprietary, progressive spring design, our SPORTLINE springs provide the ultimate balance between high performance, extreme lowering and comfortable ride quality. When combined with today's wild 18", 19" or 20" wheels and tires, the result is a car that handles just as white-hot as it looks.

"With the Eibach suspension, every last movement was damped out of existence...The Eibach suspension was confidence - inspiring in virtually any situation...(It's) one of the most well-sorted aftermarket suspensions we've ever encountered."

* Your results may vary. As we have learned from racing and independent testing has proved - lowering your car or truck's ride height also improves your aerodynamic efficiency by forcing more air over the car and less underneath (where most of the drag is found on any vehicle), resulting in higher top speeds on the track and better MPG on the highway.

Suss is correct. You will be able to go considerably lower with coilovers. That's why I spoke up about the "waste of money" comment.

If your looking to lower for looks cut your springs or buy springs that way you won't feel like its a waste of money. if your looking to lower for race purpose or (stance,slammed) you get coilovers because there is a big difference between a fully adjustable coilovers and the spring rates and valving and ride height and ride quality vs a cheap pair of struts and springs. If you want slammed and you buy ksport you can drop as much as 3" if you remove the lock rings and drop the coilovers to below minimum safe standards which could cause harm to the vehicle and the coilovers.
