You mean PROGRESS brand springs???

Because the Eibachs are a progressive spring

The Progress ones ride REALLY nice...no joke. Hitting a HUGE pot hole or some nasty rail road tracks of course doesn't feel too great, but that's gonna be expected with a lowered car....but normal bumps & normal rail road tracks are fine.

Screw it, i'm just going to get the progress springs and call it a day. If i don't like them i'll sell them and get the Eibachs.

That's what I get for watching porn and typing at the same time. I re-edited.

You'll be happy with the Progress ones....seriously

And for the price....like I posted before....you're getting an alignment ($50) & the springs ($166 SHIPPED) for the same price you'd pay for the Eibachs alone....if not cheaper

I still have to post pics & finish my spring install write up, but it's pretty simple though

Plus the dark gray springs looks good on a silver RL....even though you really don't see them at all, it's nice knowing that they do

Install them yourself
There's a bunch of guys in FL that could help you too!!

If not, they'll probably charge you like $200-250 or something at a shop


Haven't had my car towed....but do you mean them getting the dolly/thing under the car, or the fear of the back end dragging the ground when it's being towed or what??? I don't get what you're asking
Just get it hauled on a flat bed

Is it gonna be repo'd soon, or you got some parking tickets or something??

hahahaha. actually, when i lower mine, i'd be worried about either the front or the rear dragging....or either hitting when being dragged or driven up onto a flatbed...but i'm not really worried about having to be towed in the first place.

edit: to the o.p. there's a how-to that assumes you're doing it in a driveway or home garage--i.e. no lift. that's what i'll be printing and using--even though i'll probably be using a lift and air tools when neccessary.



Q: What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
A: First, you screw. Then, you bolt.
