I have the Eibach variable rate springs with Koni sport shocks and am
not all that happy with it. I had a set of Suspension Techniques springs
years ago (they finally sagged out) that I liked a lot better. 

In all fairness, I drive rough roads a lot (I live in a pretty rural
place) and I get more suspension travel than most. I wish that I had
either the constant rate springs or stock. I would be willing to sell
me stuff if this fellow wants it. It might work better for someone who
mostly drives smooth roads.

Any other feelings out these? Would someone with the Bekius setup like
to comment?
