I did a search and could't find much on the Eibach Sportline. Can anyone who has them post some pics and some info in them? Like hows the ride and and how stiff it is, and whether is bouncy or not, and how much you payed.


thanks.

I got mine off of Ebay for $260. I installed the Eibach sways at the same time and love the ride now. As far as bumpiness/stiffness, iI believe it actually rides close to stock.

The only problem is that I was hoping to have a little bit stiffer of a ride, so I'll be moving to aftermarket shocks in the near future to get a slightly stiffer ride.

I really like the look now too. I think it will look even better once upgrading to 18's.

Wow that looks sick!

You could try painting the wheels black. Mine look badass.

Some mad camber on that front wheel!

And to think those are stock rims - that car looks so tight!

Thanks for the feedback everyone...

As far as the camber...I haven't gotten it aligned yet since dropping it. I need to real soon though before the tires start wearing un-evenly. I'll post more pics in a seperate thread later.

eibach says 1.4", i would say it's pretty close to that.

i also dropped mine with sportline and i love the looks and the ride. it could've been better if they were just a bit more stiff. anyway, there's one problem though. i can't find any camber kits for is300. i've ordered "so-called-camber-kit-for-is300" from OBX, but they didn't even fit in the hole. i've also ordered "IS300 camber kit" from other company, but they were actually for the ES300. so i recommend you guys to look for the camber kit before even buying Sportline. oh yeah, let me know if you guys find the camber kits for is300, thanks!

Can some of the current Eibach Sportline owners let us know if these springs settle throughout time??

I have eibachs and I like them a lot. They give a decent drop, somewhere between 1-1.5". The ride is very similar to stock as far as bumps, etc, but cornering is much improved. I don't do anything crazy with my car, like autoX or anything, so this is all feedback regarding street driving.

You shouldn't need a camber kit with these springs, the car can be aligned no problem with these springs.
