making the most of Eibach springs...
After sampling the assembled net wisdom, I realize the Eibach springs I bought
last year for my '87 5000S Q are not the hot tip, however, since my old
springs were quite dilapidated at 150,000 miles, they were better than
(practically) nothing. And they look cool, too :) (just kidding!!!!)
My experience is that they are OK except when a bump is large enough to
activate the stiffer section of the proportional springs, at which time the
noise is unnerving, moreso the tendency for the rear to skid about!
Since I have Koni adjustables all around, is there a particular setting I
should use to make the Eibachs less offensive when hitting bumps in a curve?
They're currently set at minimum, down from a stiffer setting that I thought
exasperated the aforementioned bump-steer. Where is best for them? Should I
unload the Eibachs onto someone else? If so, what should I use? OEM springs
would practically buy an A4!!!
Help! (I mostly cruise the Interstates, but enjoy the many twisty mountain
roads central Pennsylvania has to offer.)
