    Default Who wants a set of (brand new) Eibach lowering springs?

    Hey everyone,

    I've spoken to Eibach and asked about the lowering springs they used to make for our cars. The springs in question are: 3804.140 (82-91 FWD A-body) Pro Kit Lowering Springs. These are said to work on cars up to '93 and I believe it can be slightly modified to also work on newer cars as well.

    If we can drum up enough support to sell 25 full sets (front & rear) of these springs, Eibach will make a limited production run for us! Once we reach 20 commitments for this group-buy, a funding page will be set-up. The cost will be around $200-$300. Eibach will require a 50% down-payment to begin production, with the rest due upon completion. This is a very rare opportunity and we should take advantage!

    Advertise this to everyone and anyone as this opportunity will not come around again!

    Drive for 25!

    Honestly, I have absolutely no idea. I'm assuming somewhere around 300-400$ (which is typically what eibach springs cost). If we get enough people I can call them back with a serious request and get a quote done.

    Is this for front and rear? or one or the other? I might be down, if my current tentative plan bears fruit.

    EDIT: There is a minor snag. The design of the rear springs and perches/mounts changed for the '94-96 cars, so those years are not compatible with earlier cars. You would have to specify '93 and lower or '94 to '96, which would certainly complicate things.

    This would be for all four of them. Thanks for the info; I'll update the original post.

    I'd be in for a pre '93 set. If Eibach is willing to leave a little meat on the bone I'd be willing to finance a couple extra sets to sell later so we hit the minimum run. You might try asking on the X11 yahoo group, There's probably some interest there too.

    I will give Eibach a call again on Tuesday after my exams and will get definitive details and try to get the process started.

    Chevrolet Citation, which is on the 1980-85 X platform, the predecessor to the A cars. The X and A cars and U vans share a lot of components, notably the rear shocks and springs in this case, for most years

    I guess it will depend on price, also can you get the full specs for the springs? Are they also stiffer than the fe3? Since they are custom would it be possible to make them also a little stiffer?

    A-body cars ride so freaking low as it is, I can't imagine lowering them more. Every other car sold today towers over my Century. Just park in front of a Toyota Crammy bumper to bumper and you'll see what I mean.

    I actually have a ton of wheel gap, as do a large number of cars I've seen on here. Check out my thread and you can see how high my car is.

    A-body's height is lower than most modern cars, however they also have more ground clearance than most modern cars, also a lot more green house area so you can see better.

    Modern cars are kind of weird and built like a tank.

    I'd be down for a set in a heartbeat! Count me in on this and keep us posted as to what you learn. I need some springs to put on the Bilsteins I've got!
