Eibach Springs

Found these psirngs on parts for saabs, and it says they fit 94-98 900's, but all the eibach springs I have seen are for 9-3, so I was wondering if these would fit properly without modification.

figured that I would have to modifiy it like that. The thing is I dont have the tools to do my shocks on my own. So I dont think any mechanic would modify it like that, but I will go down to the shop and see if he would.

Eibach doesn't list any springs for NG900's only OG9-3's. Possible they offer a different product in Europe? PFS has a different part number for both. Which of course does not match Eibach's part numbering system.

well I went to order the springs, but shipping cost was over $100 and that cost is not worth it to me at the moment. So maybe in the future they will be a possibility.

UMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

http://www.genuinesaab.com/catalog/p...251738ef57d9f2

almost $200 less than the eibachs after shipping. why are you not considering these?

http://www.genuinesaab.com/catalog/p...251738ef57d9f2

or those, ~120 less after shipping

i am confused, do you have an ng900 or 9-3?

He has an NG. 9-3 spings do not fit up front without modification.
The Vogtland springs leave alot to be desired.

Well I just ordered the vogtlands, because I cant float $175 just for shipping plus $260 for the springs right now. If I had a 9-3 I would have gotten the koni package genuinesaab sells, and like srp said the vogtlands are not all that good.

There has got to be a source in the US.
I'm going to call Eibach when I get a few free minutes.

well, if there is someone that sources it I use it for future reference since I already ordered everything from gs, but it would also be a good alternative choice rather than the vogtlands.
