Hey I am tossing around the idea of getting some Eibach Springs and wondered if anyone knew the difference's or recommend the "pro-kit" or the "sport lines" ?? I do know the "sport-lines" lower it more than the "pro-kit" but which is better ??? Thanks in advance !!

I used the Steeda 5th Anniversary. I found that the other 2 had softer springs than the Bullit has stock. I could really feel the difference (too much roll).

What effect are you after? Are you looking to decrease body roll, lower for appearance, etc. Are you willing to have a harsher ride? Are upgrading shocks/struts in your future?

If you are looking for increased performance I would suggest something in the 700-850 range for the fronts and around what you have for the rear(250). The Steeda Street/comp springs will put you in this range. It will lower the car a little, but not much. I don't know a lot about the Tokico shocks that Ford has used, but an upgrade might be a good idea for the future. That should take away some of the body roll and offer a fairly stiff ride.

If you are just looking to lower the car, the Pro-kit will be fine, although the FRPP "C" springs may be more cost effective and give about the same drop. On top of that they offer close to stock spring rates and their made by Eibach anyway.

Hope that helps.

Joe Bullitt here's some info for you taken from a previous post by me
"rsom1 here is the spring rate information you wanted on the Sportlines. Front progressive 456 to 507 lbs and rear 149 to 296 lbs. I got this information directly from Eibach who were very reluctant to share it with me. As for the stock rates, I can't find the link but I think Art Hyde stated them in a q&a that was posted on Stangnet several months ago. (600lbs front 200lbs rear linear) Hope the info helps you out, in any case the Sportlines are great for my purposes."
I have auto-crossed my Bullitt with the Eibachs and they were ideal along with my other suspension tweaks. Additionally I have a good balance of street performance and looks.

Thanks for all the posts Fella's, I am wanting to increase handling performance mostly -I don't want it REALLY low to the ground just take up some of the wheelwell gap - Bullitt 5467 is unfortunately my daily driver, :sad: so I am looking to get the best compromise between looks and performance but I certainly don't want it to handle poorly just to look cool! as I don't know a whole lot about springs it is difficult for me to know what is best, I don't do auto-X yet but it may be a possibilty though i doubt i will seriously compete in it - maybe just do it for fun once in a while - now that you know what I want/need any other recommendation's ?
thanks alot "Bullittheads" !!
