Default Replaced old Sachs with new Sachs Shocks

And @ 150K, thinking of replacing springs with the Eibach Pro Kit.
Anyone try this combo?
If so, your thoughts please. pc

I have Bilsteins on my T-Type 84' Buick and really enjoy the ride/handling.

The Buick is for sale btw.
You have to be nuts to drive a Single turbo Indy V6 0n the street.. pc

If you are going to stick with standard Sachs shocks (made for standard springs), you may get a bit of a bouncy ride with Eibach springs ... they are lower and stiffer and ideally need stiffer shocks (Bilstein, etc..) for a "balanced" ride.

Cheers

Default Thank You for the info..

I have received a number of private messages, indicating "no issues"
using the Eibach Pro Spring Kit with Sachs Shocks.

Including no abnormal tire wear..
So for half the cost of the Kit, I'll give the used set of Eibach's a try.

Thank You, pc
