RE: H&R vs. Eibach

I personally think the H&R, Koni setup is the way to go for street driving.  
The Boge's are not good on a lowered car and really loose it with aftermarket 
wheels.  Eibachs are a little stiffer off compression.  The H&R's are just 
about right off compression and stiffen nicely when compressed.  
I have driven cars with Koni's, Spax, and Boge's and the koni's feel the best. 
 The spax might be slightly better for extremes but are still rocks even on 
the lowest setting.

Subject:  H&R vs. Eibach

hey all, i was wondering what the concensus is on the Eibach setup vs. 
H&R  i will be using koni yellows, with a front strut brace, and sport 
8000 tires on the stock wheels.  Lemme know your recommendations.  At the 
most i want the car lowered 1.5 inches, but preferrably less.  

I want excellent handling, and that is my main priority...

please advise...and also, what are the best places to buy them in terms 
of price.  lowest H&R ive found is 240 and the one quote on eibach that i 
have is 230...so lemme know on that too please
