Hi,

I am very interested in the Eibach Pro springs and fast road setup for my CTR.
It seems every second Civic Type R owner in the UK has this mod, and I hear very good things about it.
I'm in Australia, so just trying to understand exactly what the fast road setup is so I can communicate it to mechanics here in Australia who may not be familiar!
Also, can someone please confirm the part number for the Eibach Pro Springs for 15mm drop. I have larger offset alloys so cannot afford a dramatic ride drop.

Any help with this will be much appreciated.

Hi,

Our Fast Road Setup is setting the front & rear camber and toe to a specification that we know works well with the cars chassis.

To get these settings, you need to fit shims on the rear hubs to adjust the rear toe and camber, fit camber adjusting bolts on the front strut and then you can set the cars geometry to the fast road spec.

The settings make the car feel alot more stable making the steering fell more responsive, adds weight to the steering giving you feel of the road throught the steering wheel, sharper turn in and give you alot more confidence when driving quickly through a bend.

The Eibach Pro-kit part number for the Type R is E10-40-011-01-22 and these are £200.00 including shipping to Australia.

Hope this all helps?

Hi Dave, you know the FN2 has really big problems with understeer, it would soon bring an advantage only if you attach the shims on the rear axle? this is changing but the fall?

and only the shims for the rear will not improve that problem?

Sorry for intervening but I don´t understand what shims are? I just bought Eibach springs and camberbolts and got the FRS camber and toe to get the car aligned after the parts are installed.
My car has only done about 6000km total if it has anything to do with it?

The shims are to adjust the rear camber & toe only. Some cars we see are not out of specification so dont need shims.

Basically the rear hubs are fixed to the rear beam and are set in a jig at the factory. Some are slightly out so the shim goes between the hub and the beam to alter either the toe or camber angle.

hope this helps?

Thank you:D Do you have any news as to how far my package is?

It will depend on how far out of specification the rear is. Most of the understeer will be caused by the way that the front is setup.

Hope this helps?

Jup it helps :)
