There is another thread floating around stating that a limited run was done by eibach, and they might start another run in September. Last I heard road/race might have one or two sets if they haven't been spoken for yet. Might be worth a look.

Tempted to drop my car as well, but a little concerned about the ride getting too stiff.

The ride quality is still pretty good. It's stiffer for sure but not uncomfortable by any means. My girlfriend hated my gti because it was so stiff and she has yet to complain.
Eibach claims a 1" drop all around but realistically it's more like 1.5"

Post a pic with the cam level to the door. In this pic yours looks higher in the back than mine... ?:confused:
You're running 17" wheels, correct? That would fill out the wheel well a little better. This picture was also taken on a gravel road so its probably not level. I'll take a new picture today

I hope to have my set installed in the next week or two. As much crap as we've given Roadrace, they are actually nice guys on the phone. I went from ordering to tracking number in just a few hours.

Seems like a good outfit that got lead on a bit by their suppliers. I would have waited til I had product in hand before I advertised having them in stock a month or so ago...but they are very eager to get stuff out on the market so we can customize our cars. I think they're just car nuts like the rest of us.

Thanks to Brandon and Robert for getting one of the last sets out to me.

yeah, people can't fault rob at road race for the excitment he has for the 500 because we all share that feeling. He did not take anyones money and run, he simply took some orders thinking he was getting springs in earlier than he did( which isnt his fault).
Great service from them and you'll love your springs.

Ditto. They were very responsive and got mine shipped immediately. Thanks to both of them. They truly seem excited about developing a full product line.
