Eibach Pro-System Kit

Anyone have these on their SVT? If so, do you have any pics? If you do have the Eibach, did you need to worry about the camber or anything due to the lower height? How was the ride compared the stock suspension? Debating if I want to go with the Eibach Pro-System Kit or put a new stock SVT setup on. Thanks.

If you want to go lower, then get the eibach kit. Your svt is lowered .05'' to start w/ so whaever kit you look at minus a 1/2'' of the top.

Pro-Kits are a nice modest drop, but a little too soft for me. If you do decide to go lower, don't forget about upgraded dampers.

I read one review about the Eibach not being as stiff as stock. I do like the solid feel of stock but was hoping for the lower ride.

The Sportline system works great for me, its great for a DD & handles great. I had the frpp's K/W springs w/ svt dampers before & I notice the Eibach's handle the onramp corners better. Yeah, I didn't have a torsen w/ the frpp's kit.

I currently have the pro kit springs now on my car with the stock struts. It does lower it some more from a stock SVT. This time around I will be installing the Sportlines Sport System kit on my 2002 SVT in a month or so.

Thanks guys. My only other concern is that I'm running 225/45/R17, so one size wider than stock. Either of you running wider tires? Wondering if I need to be concerned with rubs due to the extra 1" drop.

You gained a little more outside diameter & a little more section width. If there was a street 225/40's I'd be running them.
