SVT springs and Eibach dampers- good combo?

ok, I did a search and nothing showed up-

in autox, I *have* to run the stock height springs to run in a stock class-

the SVTF currently has the eibach pro setup on it (springs and dampers), and I'll need to remove the eibach spring and install the SVT springs-

does anyone run this combo? are the eibach dampers better than the SVT dampers? will they work well with the SVT springs?

I know the SVT springs are
F: 129 lb/in
R: 157 lb/in

and the eibach springs
F: 137 lb/in
R: 171 lb/in

so the change in spring ratio isn't that extreme (6%f, 9%r)

or would I be better running the SVTF dampers?

thanks FF!

You should be fine with the Eibach dampers and SVT springs.

I'm running the adjustable KYB-AGX's with stock SVT springs.
Works very well.

Only reason I'm running STS instead of GS, is due to the STS and VF Rear Eng mount.
^^^Well, that, and we're all on equal footing so to speak, as R-Compounds are not allowed in STS.

thanks for the info!
I'm looking forward to kicking some butt in GS this year-
I currently run a comp-prep SVO, but due to chassis problems, I can't get any good alignment out of it.
