    I can't find the Spring rate for the Eibach's... wanna go for whatever is stiffer. I assume the RS*R is stiffer due to reduced ride height...

    Dunno, I just know most vehicles need programming after pulling the seats. Are ours cheap enough that the SRS system actually doesn't know where the seat is to time the bags? Pretty sure its a...

    It just is what it is, I find. Still grips, still slips, just a bit wonky.
