Thanks! Mine was just barely rubbing. I just pushed the tabs up a little and that solved the problem.. Can't wait to see yours

i ran the sportlines with the stock Si suspension. it rode like **** but it could take a corner with no body roll. I had a bit of trouble getting into my old apartment complex due to the speed bumps. going really slow at an angle

Hay guys,

It's been almost 4 weeks, and I thought I'd post up pix of my ride as it sites now. It definitely settled a bit more than when I first got it (Eibach sportline springs pics and review.).

For the front, I can barely fit 1 finger in the gap, while the rear, i can fit ~1.5 fingers in.

Without further ado, here are the pix:



Front:








Rear:








I love the look! =) Hope this helps anyone who's considering sportlines, with pix right after installation (page 4) and after it settles.

Thanks for looking

That looks like mine, wish it were a little lower in the back to even it out and it would be perfect.

Personally, I like it lower in the front. Gives it that aggressive stance. Eibach was way off in saying it lowers the vehicle 1.4F/1.4R. In reality it's more like 1.75F/1.5R. I took measurements when I installed my Sportlines and sure enough that's what it was (1.75F/1.5R).

I agree with hondamtrco4life, I personally like it the way it is, with the front slightly lower than the rear....but that's just preference

How often do you hit your front bumper?

I measured mine from the middle of the fender to the ground. I took the before and after measurements in my garage which is perfectly straight. See pic below (x09dbpSIx- hope it was okay to use your pic).

I have yet to hit my front bumper. Sportlines are not low at all. Granted I know my car very well and how low it is so I know what I can and cannot go over.

Okay guys... I just ran downstairs and snapped some shots of my car as it sits right now. BTW I have Sportlines as well for those who skipped to the last page of this thread.

Front - Zero finger gap



Rear - 1 finger gap



Now for the measurements. Like I said in the previous thread the measurements are done from the center of the fender well through the center of the wheel and all the way to the floor. Here they are.

Front - 24 1/4 inches


Rear - 25 1/8 inches


For those of you who have Sportlines and look like you're sitting higher than I am park your Si on a leveled surface and take the same measurements I did. This way we can compare.

better to compare by measuring from the center of the hub to the fender as it will remove the sidewall height variable.

I have eibach sportslines, and I have finger gap in front, and a finger and a half in the back, I dont scrape when going over bumps, and the ride is nice, it wasn't degraded.

I liked my sportlines on my old car, but I think on this one I'll get the prokit. There were times when I'd get too much rubbing.

I've never gotten any kind of rubbing whatsoever.
