Tested these for 1k miles and removed. Ford Racing Eibach coilovers with adjustable rebound and compression, rears are also adjustable. Billet pillowball uppper mounts. Stainless steel shock bodies. Went back to B8's. You can see where my tire wheel combo barely rubbed the sticker off on the front shock bodies. I am running 245/40's on a 9.5" rim with a 38 offset, just needed a couple more mm's of offset to use these. The rear shocks have about 500 more miles on them. Rear springs were never used with the included adjusters, I ran Eibach Sportline rear springs with the shocks. The rear springs and adjusters are included. These drop the fenders down to the tires. Everything for $1000 shipped.

So what's the story with these? Are they prototypes that never got released? I'm interested but I'd like to know more about these coil-overs.

Seems like a good price for a set of coilovers. I think they might be a bit too extreme for my DD use. I wish I knew of some others running these.

Replied to PM.

Not sure of the story about these, one-offs/prototypes or limited runs. All I know is they are made by Eibach for Ford Racing and Eibach stands behind products with their name on them. Adjustable compression and rebound, stainless steel bodies, quality Eibach springs. What's not to like? There is no paperwork with these and less than 1k miles on them. Lowered the car onto the wheels and rode smooth. My wheels are just a tad too wide otherwise they'd still be on my car.

dang. wish i was in the market. looks like the same linear springs that came with my Ground Control coilovers on my E36 BMW. in fact, they kind of look like ground controls. i think the Eibach decoder ring for those springs are 7" length (0700), 2.5" diameter (250), and 250lb/front (250) or 300lb/rears (300). i am running 0600.250.0600 fronts and 0600.250.0650 rears on my BMW. if they are anything like my BMW's coilovers they are awesome on the track but extremely aggressive for street use (granted i have 300+ lb rates over yours). i would snag these up in a heart beat if i was in the market and i could get the FoST to the autox. GLWS!
