The Eibach ProKit springs & dampers always get good reports.

Yep its Very low at the front, i think the springs have started to sag as the car doesn't sit level anymore + thinking of changing the undertray also.

I just fitted a new set of springs to the rear of the car, its the fronts tomorrow.

Its not to difficult on the sw. On the rears there is no reason to remove the droplinks or other joints. The most difficult bit is removing the trim to get to the top bolts in the car!

All you need to do is jack the car right up, prop it on axle stands, support the hub with a jack, remove the 2 top bolts (the strut isnt bolted into the turret), and lower the jack.

You should then be able to compress the strut far enough to lift the spring over the top and remove it. Then refit the spring, the struct should then extend its self (unless its shot!?)back into the turret, refit the top bolts and thats it, job done.:)

Front spring replacement

This is the easy way to change the fronts, FOLLOW the numbers otherwise you will do your self an injury!!!:mad:

Putting them back is the reverse of removal, bu its easier with shorter springs.

You need to first put a wooden block between the wishbone and bottom of the station then jack up the bottom pivot link until the the top of the stantion pokes through the turret then put the nut back on.

The top of the shock shaft has to be held while you tighten the nut with a box spanner otherwise the mount will spin the spring will come unseated.

The rest is easy!
