Question h&r or eibach?

I was looking to put some sways on my SVT, and i was wondering if anyone had either just the h&r rear sway, or the eibach kit? Which one do you think is better? Why? i know that the h&r rear is 24mm, and the eibach kit has 22mm front, and 25mm rear............thanks

chris

I have heard the H&R's are much stiffer than others, not that sways aren't supposed to be stiff, but the H&R's are pretty brutal on a daily basis from what I have heard.

I would go with the Eibach if you are putting them on your daily driver.

H&R hands down...just like I say everytime. I have the cup kit and rear sway, and my car handles awesome!!! Who knew a FWD could feel this precise. I dunno if its as good as my Miata, but I havent done my bushings yet and the Miata is an auto-xer right outta the box...

I've always used Eibach. Had it on my Mustang, and Rx-7. Love the way it handles without sacrificing ride quality. The FOCI will be getting Eibach.

Do you guys recommend the Pro-Kit or Sportline's for the SVTF. Mine is a daily driver and roads aren't the best around here. But I also want the lowered look, cause right now it just sits too high.

21/ 21 - I only use the H&R 24 rear for more neutral balance...
