How low do Eibach pro springs really go

Hi
Im looking at a set of Eibachs for my lusso as it sits to high for me currently. I was wondering if eibachs hit the advertised 35mm or is it less? I dont want to compromise on the springs but am worries about them rubbing on the 19" bbs rs alloys im getting.

try the search function, but this thread goes into a bit more depth about the option. But generally, yes, I think 35mm is about right, most of the Ti's seem to sit a bit lower than on the OEM Ti springs on their 19"s (Ti is supposedly around 25-30mm)

Advertised 35, mm would never mean exact 35, mm body lowering.
It means advertised spring is 35, mm shorter to conventional one only.
Eibach springs are thicker and tougher and nobody can guarantee exact lowering in mm beforehand.
Best way to check how it looks like is to see similar cars advertised springs equipped with.

It'll also depend on stuff like how much fuel you have in the care etc (70l weighs quite a lot!), or which engine, but there is a wide variation in engine weights lots of examples and measurements in the thread I linked.


There appears to be two spring options for the front (standard and 'heavy' (2.4 and 3.2 engines), and two for the rear (standard and '4wd' option), so there are weight discrepancies between them anyway.
