i have the eibachs on my 99 9-3 and i love them. Nice comfortable drive.
The only thing i would change is to make the fronts lower, because its a 1.2" all around. And on some angles now, it looks like the rear sits lower then the front, but it really doesn't.

i saw someone with a pair of them and they were sagging in the back a bit.. It was a viggen convertible and the rear wheel wells were covering the top of the tire and the fronts looked much higher....i would go for something else if i were u, but, it could just be the convertable equipment weighing it down

Hey all,

Just trying to pick out the best springs for my NG900. Wanted to get a list of all the springs setups and how low they ride on the car. We all know its going to be stiffer but some springs are stiffer then others when they lower the car the same distance. So feel free to give your thought. So far we have----

Eibach Springs - MP Performance (www.mpperformance.com)
Lowering 1.2 inches - Price $249.00 USD

H&R Springs - Genuine Saab (www.genuinesaab.com)
Lowering 1.3 inches - Price $255.00 USD

B&R Springs - Shox online store - (www.shox.com)
Lowering 1.4 inches - Price - $219.00 USD

Intrax Springs - Discount Auto Parts - Drive wire (www.drivewire.com)
Lowering 1.5 inches - Price - $254.61 USD

Spax Springs - Motor Sport World - (www.motorsportworld.co.uk)
Lowering 1.5 inches - Price £125.99 comes out to about $250.00 USD

PI Springs - Motor Sport World - (www.motorsportworld.co.uk)
Lowering 1.5 inches - Price £116.23

AVO Springs - - Motor Sport World - (www.motorsportworld.co.uk)
Lowering 1.5 inches - Price £95.18

Well This is as far as i got. If there is a mistake any ware please post it. Also if anybody found any other springs, post it also. I'm looking to go lower then 1.5 inches. I know at Yankton Tuned (http://www.kyankton.net/index.htm) he is going to make a Custom Coil Over Suspension. If anybody knows how he is doing this post it here, I would love to do this. I would wait but he has not posted anything on his site for a little while.

So let me know if anybody finds springs that lower you can then the ones are already posted, and also the Custom Coil Over Suspension.

Here you go

The only two of those companies I have not heard numerous horror stories about is H&R and EIbach.

I have heard tons of great things about Eibach. BUT I also have heard of the rear sagging thing from them, and also one side sitting lower than the other (lopsided left to right!). I am going with H&R, just an opinion though... :wink:

All performance springs are subject to sagging at times. I have not seen a car yet that was lowered that you could go around and measure the exact same ride height at every corner and that did not give the appearance of a sagged rear. The only way to avoid the sagged rear look is to have an offset set of springs that gives a slight difference in the drop heights from front to back.

Eibach makes springs that are direct stock springs for Mercedes, BMW and a few other car makers as well just as a side note. The H&R's are good springs too so either way you went wether it was Eibachs or H&R's you not going to be sorry. The only springs that you will hear alot of mixed reviews on are usually the INtrax and they are known for sagging in the rear on alot of cars.

Eibach- In the US.... unfortunantly NG900 eibach springs are not available, only for the 9-3!

I went with Intrax on by brothers 98 900 SET & it's a bouncy firm ride compared to my stock viggen

Koni is coming out with a spinrg/shock combo & I plan on using that once it's finally available. I actually need to call koni to see if they are available yet :)

Hopefully this is true and not just a rebranding. although it still would be good, hopefully not outrageously expensive
