Somebody may have already asked this but im going to ask it anyway... Do i really need camber bolts with Eibach -15mm springs?. I have understood that i dont need them until if i decide to have FRS because the car comes down only 15mm. So...am i correct or not?

I dont mind the original stiff ride of the R, but the 19" lightnings just look better with a little -15m drop

it debends what is your wheel alignment now. Without camber bolts i had slightly positive camber with Eibach springs as it should be 0.5-1 degrees negative on street.

BTW, i have set of camber bolts lying around useles...

are these springs a softer rate than stock? Will they handle abuse on circuit occassionally?
They are softer on light load and harder on heavy load.
They are progresive rather than the stock Linear springs.
So you can still corner hard but dont feel every damn ripple when driving straight. ;)

ONLY REAR springs are progressive on Eibach pro-kit

front springs are linear

see below technical sheet
thanks mate.

So if the fronts are linear, do you know if the spring rate is softer or stiffer than stock? If they are softer than that only helps with comfort, I'm worried if I track the car it might bottom out but then I would argue I should get coilovers and my response to that is it is not viable for me since it only gets driven on the weekend.

I would think that coilovers are only really going to be required if your doing regular tracks days
