Any issues with bottoming out due to the decreased height or scraping the wheel wells?

The 2014 front springs are in the development process. We don't have an ETA yet but we will post one as soon as we have some firm dates.
Thanks

Ken,

So what made you decide to run stiffer up front and less on the rears vs. the Eibach pro-kit? From what I've seen published, here is how the two kits compare:

Eibach kit
Rate
Front: 153-193 lbs/in
Rear: 171-216 lbs/in

Mountune
Rate
Front: 155-196.5 lbs/in
Rear: 170-210 lbs/in

Rear: 170-210 lbs/in

We tested many sets of springs with different rates. We feel this combo works best preserves the overall attitude of the car. I've driven our car with rear springs that had an increased rate and the overall balance was not good. It wanted to under steer and push at high speeds. Not fun.

Just wondering how these compare to the Eibach pro kit. They seem to be a similar drop, with similar spring rates if my memory serves me correct. Just hoping for some more info about what sets these apart.

Thanks
