Which Eibach Pro kit springs for a 1.9 Jtd?
I have been chatting with Tim from alfisti.net about a set of Eibach Pro springs to mate with my Rhoddy Harvey Bailey revalved Bilstein B8 GTA dampers. Apparently there is a dilemma insofar that the JTS springs are too soft so they end up in constant compression causing progressive hardness which ruins the ride. Apparently the 2.4JTD springs are harder at the front so the back end tends to sit lower than the front which looks odd but gives better clearance and ride. If its worthy of note, I'm also fitting 15mm spacers behind the 17inch multispokes all around and an aluminium undertray
My car is a daily driver and needs to be comfortable on long journeys and supple on country road potholes. I want a fast road car, not a compromising racer. I'm guessing that the dampers would pair nicely with GTA or V6 Eibach springs if they fit the 1.9 Jtd. What do you think chaps? Experiences with this little scenario or pictures would be greatly appreciated.
