I've had my prokit for just about 2 years and now I'm getting some rubbing. The rubbing only really occurs with people I the backseat and\or when hitting large bumps. Is this normal?

Yup! Gravity is an unrelenting force. Springs will soften and sag a bit over time. What is the offset on your wheels if I may ask?

Same as the EAPs I had on, can't think of the number though.

After only two years though, jeez. Thanks for the info though

The offset for SVT wheels is 49mm. Tire size is just as important as wheel offset when it comes to a setup rubbing or not.

I have also heard from various people that Eibach springs tend to sag more severly than other brands.

Wow I had no clue about that but it would make a lot of sense. My tires are also the same sze as the stock setuo. Sounds like its time for some new springs, or some coilovers[driving]

Rep for the both of you!

If they are starting to sag I would replace them soon. About 2.5 years after I installed mine, I went to replace my struts and 2 of my springs were broken completely in half. I had notice a bit more rubbing the last 4 months or so. Also, if they are broken or I'd imagine even sagging, Eibach has a million mile warranty and if you take them back to where you bought them they will replace them.
