    wanted to buy eibach prokit (8212.140) but they are discontinued

    was wondering if anyone can find these on the net or any and all other spring options there are that i can run, was looking to run a 1 inch drop over a lower b+g drop if i can help it and perferably if the springs were shipping from somewhere in the US

    seems like there are limited choices around to choose from and all around $200-240...any help on other springs and prices would be awesome

    i bought all the shocks and extras to put it all together, one question how does the spring seat up against the strut mount on the rears, didnt actually take it apart yet to see, just wondered me cuz i got a junkyard spring isolators and hats off 5th gen celicas and on those the spring seats right against the bottom of the rear strut mount but i got my new rear strut mounts and there is no place for the spring to sit

    I just avoided the springs and went coil covers...much easier....rickstarr22 fitted the b&g springs....they fit like factory......dropped it a nice bit too.

    I decided to use the B&G's with stock Gr-2's...5mm spacers in the rear.

    With 16's and 205-50 tires...


    Now with stock 14's and 205-60's...


    I would have gone coilovers if I didn't like it, but it turned out good enough for me. :)

    Hi -

    not to threadjack, but I just wanted to know if you have any rubbing issues with the 16's and 205/50... i will be buying some set of rubbers for my 7th gen rims and lower the car using B&G and was wondering if i should get a 205/50 or 195/50 rubber... thanks!

    amazon is the only thing i found

    was trying to find other sites becuz they are listed for around $198 on 3 sites i found wit free shipping but none of them have them

    if i dont find them for cheaper than amazon in a couple days then i guess amazon it is for $240

    My '88 came with Suspension Technics lowering springs, but several companies still lists a few different brands. With stock strut housings, I wouldn't go much lower than about 1.2-1.4 inches, causes too much bottoming!

    On eBay of course...lol

    Haven't looked lately because, well, I already have them. :)
    They had a bunch listed, I wouldn't think they had sold them all.

    in dire need of a set of drop springs, dozens of sites advertise b&g and eibach but no one has them when you call or try to buy them, even found b&g on ebay and called seller who doesnt have them wtf...

    now i got all the shocks and bits but no springs to put it all together....

    please someone find me a set of any springs i can buy or if someone got a used set let me know

    Don't know if these sites have them or you would trust buying form them... have no experience whatsoever with them before but scouring google, this is the first few sites that popped out...




    oh and I thought Amazon had it in stock?
