The only offering from Belltech is the V6 noted one (#4260)? I've seen a side-by-side pic on here of the Eibach vs OEM spring height difference. Do you know if this Belltech coil is in the same league? I can't seem to find any other good alternatives. Unless someone on here is selling their Eibachs??

Re: belltech 2" v6 springs

As far as I know, the Belltech springs work fine. The Eibachs were preferred, but AFAIK they aren't produced any more.

The problem is that lowering isn't an exact science. You won't know how much drop you get until you install them and see / measure.

The other issue is that it isn't as simple as cutting the coils shorter to get a certain amount of drop. Cutting the coils affects the spring rate, and cut coils can end up substantially stiffer.
