Has anyone tried Eibach springs on their 718? They have their pro kit listed for the 981 so I am assuming it fits the 982 also since several other manufacturers have the suspension components listed as fitting both 981/982. 1.2” front drop and 0.8” rear drop for base suspension which sounds perfect to me.

I want to lower my car but not my much, similar to spasm height. Doesn’t seem to be too many options out there.

I have not tried their springs, but........Check with Eibach on their spring rate, not just height. If close to stock, base rate, it could be a nice change for me also!

Had them fitted last week, driven around 300klm on them now over various terrain, no complaints as yet. Cars flatter on the corners and feels just as comfortable as the normal springs. Dropped 25mm on the front and 30mm at the rear.

That’s the thing , seems all the springs options state a slight less lower on the rear. In reality it seems to always sit much lower than stated. That was my concern when working out my options. I went with TechArt and am extremely satisfied with the stance all around. The ride quality was a bonus

Are you on the base suspension? The drop looks great and not too low.

I read somewhere that TechArt springs are made by Eibach. I have no reference though and not sure if spring rates are the same.

We can offer springs from several manufacturers if anyone would like a discount to try them out and provide a review / photos for the community. I'm waiting on info from Eibach about 718 fitment (any details from them would be good) and we also offer H&R springs.

Hear anything back from Eibach yet?

Surprised there aren’t more options for a slight drop (~1in). Most springs seem to be closer to a 2in drop which is too much imo.

Yes looks real nice now compared to the oem standard height. Was going to go full hog with a kw v3 set up but really just wanted the car to get low rather then making it a more specialised track car. Its already pretty good and believe the lower center of gravity will have quite an effect on those rare occasions I get it there.

I’ve been wondering too since my friend has a spare 981 eibach lowering springs lying around at his shop. My car came with PASM 10mm but I am hesitant to install it as I would prefer if it only lowers another 10mm, similar to the SPASM height on the 718 S and GTS models.

I saw on Thailand Eibach Facebook page where they installed the lowering springs on the 718 ~ 2 years ago:

Thanks for sharing. That drop definitely looks more than SPASM (20mm) maybe even more so than GT4 from factory (30mm).

I think 35 mm drop from base would be perfect, which the eibach may do. Any idea on the spring rates?
