Question Eibach Or Tein?

Looking to buy my first set of springs. Im Standing between Eibach and Tein...Now my question is, wich one has a sexyer drop for a better quality. Tein is looking like the cheaper of the two, but with that, does it offer less quality?

If you have pictures of any of these installed in a 07 civic, please share.

Depends on the spring rates of the springs - what are the rates of the ones you're looking at?

Don't forget - unless you have quality shocks to handle the higher spring rates, you'll need to replace your shocks, too (OEM ones won't work).

meh, I have a 00 civic hatch on teins and every time someone rides in my back seat, the rear wheels rub on the fenders because the spring rates are so soft

If I could do it all over again, I'd get coilovers because they have a higher spring rate and I could adjust my ride height to the perfect level.

mines quite a bit older, but i have the eibach sportline kit. thats sportline springs and pro shocks. lowered it a bit more than i wanted, but the spring rates basically doubled (more than doubled in the front) The ride is firmer, but not uncomfortably so. have put probably close to 10k miles on them without any issues... other than a squeaky rear end... but that may be because me and a friend put them on, not a shop
