ahhhh my old thread...:p

yeah i have a gen 5 camry sportivo 4cyl. i'm planning to get the springs and shocks. i've checked out eibach. seen their pro kit, pro damper and sport systems. the pro kit only drops the front 1.4 and the rear 1.1. why is the rear dropped less than the front?

i want around a 2" (5cm) drop.

the eibach sport system is a spring and damper set but i don't know how much it lowers the car.

so where could i find the kit i'm looking for? i'm after improved handling...

i'll have around AU$700 (~US$550) to spend on the springs and shocks excluding installation.

thanks dudes...

i don't think i want king springs...but at the moment i think the eibach pro kit springs seem the best...1.4/1.1 f/r

why is the rear only dropped 1.1 inch? does it have to do with helping acceleration by keeping the car balanced through corners and stuff?

:rolleyes:

after some thinking, 2 inch is a little too much and ~1.5 should be fine. if i lower my car 2 inches then i probably couldn't fit 2 fingers through the front fender.

after some browsing through the eibach website i found a link to an australian importer:

Eibach Suspension Technology located in mona vale sydney

also i just thought about the different model camrys available in aust...the altise/ateva and sportivo.

the sportivo (my car) has lower springs than the altise, but when they say eibach springs drop the car 1.4/1.1 are they talking about the altise model? that means if i get eibach then the front of my car lowered would only be the difference between the sportivo's lowered springs and the 1.4/1.1 eibachs?

depends on how much springs lower your car...if you car stock has a 3 inch fender gap and you springs lower it 2 inches then you got 1 inch of clearance...and you should get stiffer shocks or else the car will bounce and you wheels will rub when turning.


yeah anyways i'm after improved handling too so thats why i want eibachs over king springs.well since the pro kit only lowers 1.4 front, what about eibach's other set of springs, the sportlines?

http://www.eibach.com.au/sportline.html

i've read around and here are the details of the sportline springs

* Extreme Performance
* Race-Car Like Handling
* Progressive Spring Design
* Lowers vehicle 1.75" to 2.25"

hmm 1.75 to 2.25"
