I've had the Eibachs for about 5 yrs now. The ride is not harsh... actually these springs are somewhat soft.
The springs did settle lower than I expected. The ride dropped about 2".
I will be taking them out and putting back the stockers in the rear and GW springs in the front.
I have done some light drag racing and have had not problems with the Eibachs at all.

just my $0.02

Sorry for the caps. I suck at typing. It took me two minutes to type this! My hands are to big for this lousy keyboard.

Hotchkis, 1.5" up front and 1" out back...enough, but not too much, and the ride is awesome....
