      Any picts of Eibachs on a V70?

      A set of Eibach rear springs arrived today and I hope to get them in this week. A couple picts beside a set of stock T5 springs. Anyone have a profile picture of these on a V70 FWD?

      Just a little shorter than stock:

      more parts!

      Going through VADIS, it looks like I'm going to need some more parts:

      9461524 - Support plate
      3546435 - Spring anchorage

      I did notice the top bolt diameter for the Nivomat shock is larger so the hole coming through the mount on the non-Nivomat mounts must be smaller.

      Thanks Adam, that height looks just right.

      Are you running OEM rear shocks or something else?

      hmm - do you have any full profile shots? I didn't see any on your signature link.

      It looks like your rear is slightly tucked where Adam's looks a tad higher. I'm wondering if the FSDs are dropping it a 1/2" or so.

      This is Nick's former T5 with H&R and Koni Sports:


      My T5 with weak rear OEM springs and worn Nivomats.

      I am hoping the Eibachs are close to the same height as the H&R but the picts of yours with Eibach & FSDs has me thinking I'll end up a little lower than I am shooting for.

      Actually I don't believe that I do, however I'll have the opportunity to take some this week end, and can post it up Sunday night if you can stand the wait.

      Re: Any picts of Eibachs on a V70? (JRL)

      For those wondering why I don't have H&R rear springs - I do but they are specific for the Nivomat shock. I need the stronger, non-Nivomat rear springs.

      Thanks to a fellow SS member, I have set of brand new Eibach rear springs. I also picked up a set of OEM T5 rear springs. Now I need to determine what spring/shock combo will give the ride height without tucking the rear wheel.

      If the H&R front springs are lower than Eibach fronts, adding the Eibach to the rear may equate to a level look or slightly raised rear but depending on the shock used, the actual height could be different. Bilstein appear to raise the cars slightly.

      I should have just bought coilovers.

      Rear looks perfect. The front looks higher than what I've got now so I'm hopeful I'm looking forward to Bob's profile picture.
