Eibach springs on 4kq?

I'm running Eibachs built for a 90Q 20V on an 80Q.  They're too low (I've
been banned from carwashes, the occasional speed bump removes som
undercoating), but I have them on with Konis.  They required a non-standard
alignment (-2 deg camber to start, and wear the hell out of the inside
tread.  With rotation, though, the burden is not too bad (and, when all is
said and done, once the edge has been scrubbed off, you get extra contact
patch -- at the expense of a shorter tire life.  OTOH, when the tires were
replaced, the outer edge (they were directional tires) was just as worn as
the inner edge.

I love them.  they are supple not too lively.  With the Konis on "street"
(softest), it is a great compromise between soft edges on taking up a bump,
and great turn in and accuracy.

I had the Konis on with the original springs, and it was not much
improvement.  They really mesh well with these.

I've had this setup on the track, and it is super.
