Coil spring assistors

I just wondered if anyone had ever used these to help their lowered suspension not bottom out on the rear when loaded.


This is something I need to think about. With the summer coming up, I'm bound to be loading the sport wagon up with kids, bikes and bags. With the Eibach pro kit springs on, it looks great on the drive, but bottoms out way too much with 2 young ens in the back and a couple of bikes on top. Obviously it also makes the car feel a bit like it's doing a wheelie.

It's not really an option to put standard springs on because the car looks way to good and takes corners really well although I have wondered whether to special order a pair of rear sportpack springs to raise the rear end a bit.

Or these are a cheap option that might be worth a try first

One thing that puzzles me is when people talk about the importance of matching front and rear springs. What happens when if you've got Nivomat self levellers on the rear and you order the pro kit springs from Eibach, they only give you front springs cos you can't change the springs on the Nivomats- doesn't the theory on matching front and rear springs kinda go to poo? If so would it be really bad for the car's handling to use Eibach on the front and sportpack on the rear, creating a wedge shape whilst unladen?
