Votgland or Eibach Springs

I find myself with a set of Votgland springs and Eibach springs. The Eibach are currently installed on my 900, and I was planning on using the Votgland ones on the Viggen vert.



I need to do some suspension work on the 900 and have the chance to swap them. I want the best ride on the Viggen, and don't really care how the 900 rides (it will be my son's car).


Should I proceed with the Votglands on the Viggen, or take the opportunity to get the Eibachs out of the 900 and save them for the Viggen?

NG900 springs won't work on OG9-3s. Well, the rears will. The fronts are different.

The Eibachs are 9-3 springs, already installed. Maybe I should have pointed that out, but this car has already been swapped over to the 9-3 strut mounts, and new style control arms. Consider it a 9-3.

In that case, I would say put the eibachs on the viggen.

Got any details on how you made the 9-3 uprights work on the 900? Did you just drill out the strut mount holes?

He uses the 900 strut mount though, doesn't he? Seeing as NG900 Koni's are NLA, would be nice to be able to use 9-3 Koni's and mounts as well as springs.
