Just seen these on the rossiters website.

https://shop.ac-schnitzer.co.uk/eiba...rom-8738-p.asp

Looks like these ones are branded Eibach and not ACS like my current springs. I’ll give them a call in the morning

I’d be interested to know how you get on. I’ve got b6’s and I’m always trying to figure out what to do with the oem springs.

I have those eibach springs ready to fit to My Coupe with the B6 Shocks.

15-20mm drop.

If you want to drop more then the B8 with it's shorter rod is recommended or you could use the B8 with the above springs.

What you can't do is use the shorter B8 with standard springs.

That's how I see it anyway.

The Eibach springs are designed for use with standard dampers and the B6 seems a good match for the eibach or standard springs.

I did ask Bilstein and also larkspeed whom I ordered from about this.

That's how I see it.

Everything you say matches what Bilstein have told me directly.
15-20m drop is exactly what I want, but I don’t want a stiffer ride that I’ve already got.
Haven’t researched the ride on those springs - have you any idea why they’re likely to be like?

It would be good to get a measurement from the centre of the wheel to the highest point in the wheel arch for different setups.

This would give good info for those looking to refresh or lower with the various springs.

I’d be interested in what the stock height is so I can work out what drop the ACS springs give.

They are progressive springs so feeling optimistic about the ride, had these on another car ages ago and the ride was quite good.

If I pull my finger out I'll be able to comment but balancing work and a full suspension refresh is a bit staccato at the moment :)
