Which would be better to have in a ZX3 that has only 1.5 drop, The Eibach Pro-Dampers or the SVT struts and shocks? Thanks for the help !!
wrong. i don't know where you got your info, but seriously, it won't. i had the cup kit (again, advertised 2.7" drop) on my zx3, with 18's (wrapped in 215/35 rubber) and never rubbed once. [thumb]RPIJG said:a 2 inch drop with 17" wheels will rub, no doubt.
whats the offset of those 18's?...scironzts said:wrong. i don't know where you got your info, but seriously, it won't. i had the cup kit (again, advertised 2.7" drop) on my zx3, with 18's (wrapped in 215/35 rubber) and never rubbed once. [thumb]
This wasn't that hard, I called my dealership and said, I'd like a new set of SVT shocks and struts, and I don't want to get bent over. (helps if you know the parts people when you say this.) Shocks and struts for all four corners is gonna run me a hell of a lot less than the eibachs. 280 for the eibachs, and I went all the way around for 150.Thom said:good luck getting SVT shocks/struts if you decide to go that way. think about it, pretty much the only way to get them as of now is from someone who upgrade the suspension on their SVT, and there aren't that many svts on the road, and how many of them do you think are gonna have the already almost perfect suspension upgraded? but anyway.....
i'd say go with the eibachs. I finally got mine last month and the handling is unbelievable. yeah you can feel every little bump in the road, but it's so responsive and tight that it doesn't matter, and they still give a comfortable ride.
on a side note.... i let my mechanic who road races a mustang drive my car, and he was shocked at how good it handled. and he hates 4cyl/FWD cars. before i got the shocks i would've been embarassed to drive past him cause he'd have seen the bouncing.
