Eibachs for more than 7 months now. So far no problems to report. I'll let you guys know when it's time to replace the shocks.

No problems with camber and no need for camber plates. An alignment will bring the camber back. So far the tires a wearing well.

If anyone is looking to duplicate Eyemd's setup, I have a brand new in box set of Eibach springs for sale for a w204 C300/C350. This is a great deal for someone looking to lower 1.2" all around. Link to thread below:

i think my eibachs are setting the car just right . plus the roads here aren't always the best ones out there ...

first minus : i can't get my car inside the company yard anymore it's to low to get over the courtyard door edge

Those who have the H&R Super Sport Springs installed, do you still see any gap?

c300 sport
so when the lowering springs state a 1.2" drop, does that mean 1.2" lower than the sport suspension, or 1.2" lower than luxury?

so really, we're only getting about 0.5" lower than sport suspension? Since the sport suspension drops it about 0.75" to begin with.

Correct. With the Pro-Kit, you get a subtle drop of about 1/2" from the sport suspension. IMHO just enough to make a difference without have a slammed look.

Check out the photo below. If you want it lowered more, you'll have to go H&R Sports.
