If the car is new as a shocks and than you put eibach it will last for about 4-5 years, or about 100000km max. If you already have some km on your car than the shocks will last shorter

so if my car has 21k kilometers itl last about 70k more with the eibach? isnt that a bit too much? i heard that with lowering springs the car would need shocks in about 2 years but again, i could be wrong

Prokits are mild drop springs designed to work w/ stock struts. Shorter bumpstops will give you same suspension travel.
Should the stock 1s go, that would be good reason to switch.....Koni FSD.:)

am 40mm down on Pedders springs with stock shocks and at 43,000km it is fine (springs went in at 3000 km ).

How much of a drop are the eibachs ?
