They just seem to be the best and most available springs
and I haven't heard anything bad about them


Except for the fact they sag at the drop of a hat.


I don't know about the "drop of a hat" so to speak.

The rear superlows (Kings) in my EB Ghia have sagged to ultralow spec, but I'm not overly fussed about that at the moment, They only sagged to that height in the last 10,000kms. I have done over 200,000 on them, with a 65lt LPG tank sitting above them, and often towing big loads on a tandem trailer. They have taken a beating and a half......

The rear pedders red sports ryder also sagged in my Torana, yes it was on gas too. I got 2 years out of them before they sagged, a good 60,000kms.

When people are bagging out springs for sagging, are they talking front or rears? Car's with LPG installs or not? A little more info could be helpful for those who read this thread down the track.

Cheers

ToranaGuy

To fit the Eibach springs, all you need is to do is buy AU front shocks instead of EA-L front shocks. They bolt in the same.
The rear shocks are the same from XE-AU (with live axle)
