Default Road Magnet springs installed

Installed Saturday, not too much driving since, want to give them a chance to settle / break-in before saying much or providing any detailed feedback..

But here's a pic to get you started..

Low profile tires and a lowered suspension? The R/T isn't known for a carpet smooth ride to begin with; won't these mods just make for a "firmer" ride?
What's the spouse and family say about it?
Still, it looks evil. :-)

It really is the perfect stance and those rims just put it over the top. Probable in the top 5 of the most evil looking vehicles I've ever seen. I can see my old trailblazer SS running to hide from that baby...

OUTSTANDING - I am totally going in this direction providing that you have good things to say about the road test. I'm hoping for no rubbing or too stiff of a ride.

Frank... The only reason I haven't already gone this route is I think you will have to have stiff springs or it will rub with the 285/40/22. I think 275/40/22 would work!

yes in front at approx 50mph + over medium to big dips (at least with wifey up front and 2 kids in row 2)

so far alone i have yet to rub, maybe once at 80+ on a crappy stretch of hiway

rubbing some in front on deceny sized dips at decent speeds..

not stiff enough for my taste actually

if you like the OE ride its barely unchanged so far

I like to wait a few weeks to see how they settle..
ive had eibachs on a few other vehicles and they always
settled in after a few hundred miles
