Just received my Eibach Pro Kit this morning, took some photos while installing, figured some people might want to see, if they were thinking about doing it. It's very easy, only took about an hour to install from start to finish.
Forgive me about the photos, i'm not really knowledgeable about computers, took the photos with my iphone, i'll try to get better photos later.

Did the install myself, really really easy, took less than an hour. The complete rear is only 4 bolts. The front in comprised of 7 bolts each side. All you need is a set of spring compressors. I didn't need the camber bolts, not at all.

very nice! I signed up to volunteer my EX sedan for R&D with Eibach (I drive by their Corona, CA facility everyday on my way to work) and so I'm hoping they pick my car for some "free" upgrades. :)

even if they don't, I think I am going to get a set of springs because I'm really digging that look. Hopefully my mechanic will install them as I don't have any of my tools and I don't feel like renting stuff (read: I am lazy). lol.

I actually got them from the CORONA facility...funny coincidence huh Davini, our race shop here in FL, is a distributor, called them up Monday, received the kit on Friday, and installed that day.
Called in a favor, and ADAM hooked me up with the EMPLOYEE discount @ EIBACH!!:D

Yes,
I strung it here at the shop, changed the camber setting a little bit with the stock bolt.
No problems, so far.

Hi ******.

Don't know if you noticed in another thread but I installed my own springs a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday I had the alignment done by a shop that specializes in race cars. He had the camber bolts (14 mm.) in stock, but was able to do it without using them. He loosened the stock bolts and then used a hand-pumped hydraulic 'spreader' tool to gently nudge the strut in the required direction and the slight tolerance in the mounting was enough to allow it to shift to the required position. Not sure if he had to do it on both sides - I only paid attention while he did one side. The 1.2" drop apparently doesn't cause much camber change. Of more significance is the toe-in change.
