Tein?

I've not looked into this yet, but have POTN.com sold out then, or did you go direct to Eibach?

Actually, i'm guessing that the part number we need is E10-40-011-10-22 (2.2 iDTEC version), but google only shows the US version, not the Euro Civic. Would these be the same?

I found cheaper prices on ebay but they didn't keep 9g springs in stock.
Emailed potn.com and waiting for a answer. Will probably be 50 more expensive but meh. Just want them fast now.
Thanks for the tip!

I feel a bit gutted because my semester will be over by then and we have planned to do a few longer roadtrips this summer.
Feel like canning the idea all together until next year because I havn't found any other brand (like Tein, h&r etc) that makes springs for our 9gs and don't really know if they are of equal quality or not.
I had lowering springs of a US brand called "S.W.I.F.T" on my ralliart and those were great. Firm but comfortable and night and day performance from stock.

Thanks!
I might just go with them as they have the same drop (30cm) in front.

Hey Gloom,

I can sell you my Eibachs for the 9th gen Civic. Never used them because of regulatory issues in Austria (They don't let you lower the car when you have Xenon..)

PM me if you are interested. They are original in the original box!

Gloom has the 1.8 i-Vtec, whereas your signature shows you have a 2.2 diesel. They are not interchangable as far as i am aware.

However, for the right price i might have them from you lol

Diesel and petrol springs are not interchangeable

Hi Slashformayor. PM me please with a suggestion!
Didn't know that they are not the same but makes sense due to different weight and weight distribution.

Thank you Helmigurt real nice of you, but as the others state it will probably not be a good idea.
I have ordered the H&R's instead and will be interesting to see what Slashformayor thinks about the Eibach's and we can compare!
