    Can't wait till I get a rear bar to match my Cusco front one. Looks like you didn't have too much of a hard time either, which is also good.

    And several batches of them suffered from the same defect that many Eibach springs do.

    Oh like gyno - when you get some boobies after years of bodybuilding and then you suddenly stop and your hormones go on a vacation.

    Was the sagging due to any other things like too much of a drop? We're talking stock struts here, right? I don't know, Ninfourteener wanna chime in? Lifetime warranty you said?

    No problems whatsoever with mine.

    But... I've still got the box and the receipt.... just in case anything ever happens... so truthfully, I'm really not all that worried about it.

    When I bought/installed them, I'd just had a BAAAAD experience with some no-name springs on my Acura RSX.... blew the struts, the dust covers, they made noise, tires rubbed, and the care rode like ass.... bouncy, bouncy, bouncy.

    When I bought the Eibachs..... I didn't do very much research, all I did was pick the brand that I thought had the best reputation, and the longest-standing service in the suspension community..... Eibach (and I didn't know Prodrives were made by them at the time). Even still, I love them.

    .... same reason I went with the top-of-the-line Autometers.... their reputation, and my experience with them.... haven't regretted those either.

    I'm not even going to attempt to try to explain the handling performance increase with words.... whatever the words are.... they would fall short.

    All I'll say..... is WOW.

    It's like a different car....... it's the equivilent of the VF39 upgrade, but in handling terms.... it's THAT dramatic.

    So... pics:

    Gold.... so purdy:

    Awesome pictures man, and yea I figured you would say as much regarding handling response Do you wish you had done them a lot sooner? Hey but either way you sure did them the right way, with the links and mounts and front and rear all at the same time. Makes a world of difference doesn't it? Haha congrats man, and I'm sure you'll rip up the track next time you go now.

    Yup, they'll do that. Now go find some cloverleaf exits

    And turn your pothole-detecting meter way up...

    What settings are you using on the rear bar? I have mine set in the middle, with the adj mounts at a position where the endlinks are straight up and down.

    Yea... Cobb told me that the middle setting is best for the street/track on decent performance tires.

    The HARD setting on anything other than slicks or race tires will cause pretty devastating oversteer.

    I set the adjustable mounts so that the endlinks are straight up and down... just like factory.

    That's what I'm using. Works very well...

    just my 2 cents, but I'm running HPS pads and I'm not impressed...

    Believe it or not, the rear strut brace did make a noticeable improvement on my sedan. Something to consider now that sways are taken care of...

    Actually.... I'm still using the stock brake and pads..... at 38K miles. Whenever they do decide to go bad, I'm just going to go all out and get the Stoptech Stg 2 kit... fluid, lines, pads, and rotors..... but for now, I'm just waiting for them to go out... and they aren't even squealing.

    Next????.... is tires..... I'm torn between a $600 set of Falken Azenis rt-615...... and the $450 Sumitomo HTR Z II. I actually created a thread in the suspension forum to get some opinions.

    As far as strut braces are concerned..... already have them... front/rear/and the H-brace.
