Eibach fit on sedan however it seems to lower the rear more than the front!?!?!? So the sedan look like having 300lbs in the trunk!!!
Do you mind my asking how much it costed to get installed?I ended up going with the Eibach Springs as I really liked how everyone else's turned out and didn't want to take a chance on another brand that may or may not work as well.
Initially, I had an issue with some knocking noise when I would turn into driveways or turn on uneven pavement. I took it back to the shop where I had it installed and apparently it just needed to be realigned properly.
Now it's great and the ride is really nice. Like others have mentioned, you do feel every bump when on uneven road but it's all worth it. I think it handles much better than before and it looks great. Here's a before & after pic:
It cost me $140.Do you mind my asking how much it costed to get installed?
No it doesn't. The alignment is a tad off but it's not enough for me to want to spend another $50-$60 at this time. I'll wait till my 1st tire rotation and if it looks like I need it then I'll do it at that time.Does that include wheel alignment?
Thanks. I see you're in SoCal as well. Where abouts in SoCal. I'm in Orange/Riverside County. We might see each other on the road.nice color choice (have the same).

Yeah, I got it from Amazon and it fits perfectly and rides very nicely even though it says it's for the Forte Koup. It fits the sedan as well. I checked with Eibach directly before I bought them.did you get the eibachs you posted a link to? im going to get some of those if thats the case
I don't know if the sportline are any better. I think it's just a personal preference but I don't think the sportline is even available for the Forte.Are sportline better? I know that they lower a bit more.
Are the B&G made of the same material?
i'm closer towards the east la/san gabriel valley area, but i travel to the oc and ontario areas for work on occasion. maybe you'll see me cruising by one day.Thanks. I see you're in SoCal as well. Where abouts in SoCal. I'm in Orange/Riverside County. We might see each other on the road.
Funny thing about the color because my wife & I were all set to get the Dark Cherry EX when we saw the Red Metallic SX. We decided to just "test drive" it so we could compare the EX with the SX. As soon as we got inside & saw the upgraded interior combined with the better performing engine we were hooked. Unfortunately it wasn't in the Dark Cherry we were hoping for but it's still a great color.
Interesting because I work in OC & go up to San Gabriel area almost every weekend. I'm sure we'll see each other one of these days.i'm closer towards the east la/san gabriel valley area, but i travel to the oc and ontario areas for work on occasion. maybe you'll see me cruising by one day.
