I have the Eibachs and Koni yellow set up.  Its good but not perfect.
I think the rear of the car needs higher rate springs than what Eibach
used as I cannot carry the cargo I use to w/o sagging the rear.  Also,
if I am rowing through the gears quickly I can get too much squat IMO
and I am only chipped!

I think the 92 springs and Boge would be a perfect set up honestly for
what your looking for.

I love the stance of the Eibachs but have even myself been
contemplating lately about getting S6+ springs w/ my Koni's which I
think would be perfect for me.


Those Boge should be just what your looking for though with Eibachs.
