    Default Eibach Springs 30mm lower - $540 good price new?

    Is this a good deal? I got quoted $610 from a supplier in Sydney, this would be posted from QLD..

    $540 fitted would be a good price....
    Otherwise no not really, on the pricy side of a retail price.
    I had my 306 fitted with matched eibach pros on the front struts, revalved the strut, and reset the rear tortion all for $690.00..... -Chris

    That's not fitted, where did you get that done? What were the handling improvements like?

    Had it done a while back at North Shore rally sport, the handling was tighter by about 15%, but this was combined with a 4 point roll cage, sticky tyres, brakes, car stripped out etc.
    I honestly don't recommed it, you are better of spending the money on Koni strut inserts, eibach springs, rear Konis and sportier rear tortion bar (or have a bigger sway bar somehow attached?)-Chris

    Yeah thats about what they cost. Around $550 for the Clio but put delivery on top of that and its a fair bit more obviously. There are two kinds. If I remember correctly there is sportline or pro. I think the pro kit is 25% stiffer, the sportline 35% stiffer. Dont take any notice of how far they say it will lower the car. I think the figures they quote are for a normal clio rather than a sport so it wont be lowered as much on your car. It can also vary a fair bit from car to car and will take a while before it beds in and reachs its lowest point.

    I have the sportline (the harder ones) and my car went down 10mm all around which was all I wanted. Its about handling rather than lowering. Expect to shell out around $250 for fitting. You will need a front alignment. I dont think they can do one on the rear. Make sure u go somewhere reputable.

    Cheers

    allsprings.

    they custom make them. should set you back about 200 a pair... from memory they were either 140 or 240 a pair, but dont remember exactly.. ill chase up the number and prices for you. they custom make them to either stock, lowered or your custom specs, just make sure if u give gustom specs, u give them all the details

    Josh - What's the ride quality like with the sportline Eibach springs? They say that the pro-kit springs retain excellent ride but then the stifness ramps up pretty dramatically when you push them..

    Not too different to normal. A little bumpier as you would expect but not jarring by any means. Thats the reason i wanted them. They improve the handling a fair bit but dont change the ride too much or make an already low car too low. Theyre variable rate or dual rate springs so that would make sense that they ride quite well but are hard when u push them.

    Search for posts about them in cliosport.net there is tonnes of info.

    Says here that Eibach's Australian warehouse is in Sydney so hopefully you wont have to have them sent from Qld. Have a look for a contact on the website.

    how much would it be to fit prokit spings to the front??
    is there need to upgrade the shocks as well?
    and by how much would the car be lowered (for a xsara)?

    Depends how much u're mechanic charges per hour and how slow he works.
    U can keep u're existing shocks. (they do sit lower in the oil well)
    The car comes down between 30-50mm

    I'm getting some Eibach pro-kit springs installed just as soon as I can, should be fun. Then I'll do an advanced driving course.

    I got quoted well under $400 for S16 30mm lowered Eibachs from Wholesale Suspension in Penrith, where I also had the rear torsion bars reset.

    Eibach Spring prices vary from car to car.

    Clio's obviously seem to be more expensive then others.
