Hey all!

I have been kicking around these forums for a while and have made a few changes to my type S. I am looking at fitting some Eibach lowering springs as the stock suspension is shocking, crashy and I want a bit better handling as I have lots of lovely A roads around home :D:D:D:D

Found these from poland, great price, My main question being how much will these actually lower the type S? I have seen forums and saved some on this but I cannot find what I'm after after scouring!

If anyone can point me in the right direction or link to another forum/thread I would be greatfull.

These are the springs in question: Eibach ProKit Lowering Springs, Honda Civic FN2, FN1 Type-R CHEAP-FAST DELIVERY | eBay

looking to get them ordered pretty much straight away.

Thanks guys,
Chris :)

I bought mine from a German eBay shop, forget their name though. Excellent price and service, very quick delivery. Around £110 delivered I think?
Drops my car about 25mm

Did purchase mine from a German dealer and can't fault the service - 4 days and they arrived. I bought Vogtland springs but they have Eibach's for £123 + free standard delivery to UK

I've been running 35mm drop all round with 8x18 et40's with no rubbing.
Springs weren't fully settled when I took these

Make sure you get alignment checked after fitting

lol that happened to me, so got Vogtlands from pbt-racing instead - Thomas is extremely helpful.

Quality springs are a must have mod! The little S handles sooo much better :)

Yeah I'm looking forward to seeing how she handles with them, I have only heard good things. I was starting to fall out of love with the 1.8 a bit so I'm trying to rekindle the fire haha...

That's pretty appalling, especially for an eBay seller. I would be leaving neutral feedback at best.

If the other two links I posted don't work out, I find searching for the Eibach part number (E10-40-011-01-22) with descriptions included gives the best results.

I thought that myself...will wait for the PayPal refund to clear first should be done quite quickly and then I will order a set from another supplier bound to find one that won't let me down haha! Thanks for the help [smilie=coolup.gif]
