[s-cars] Eibach vs 92 springs

Those Eibach springs are too stiff for those kiddies to be jolted  
around in their car seats with bilsteins and I don't think there is  
enough spring
travel for the Boge.  The '92 springs are the ticket for those  
shocks.   Then you can send those Eibachs down south where the Prez is  
money for the roads.  : > )  Don't forget to get new bump stops and  
boots for the Boge since Bilstein doesn't use them.
