Which spring gets the nod for:

Ease of install
Ride
Ride height

It seems the Eibach require a bunch of BS to get right.

Install is the same....

Ride quality.....Bwoody is softer but the 1.7" rear drop bottoms more and bottoms harder.

Ride height.....here is a pic of my silver Jeep with the Eibachs and Ekaz's Jeep with the RM/Bwoody 1.0"f/1.7"r springs:

Thanks for posting that picture!
Also, did you just cut your factory bumpstops? From what I've read if I get the Eibachs and not do that I'm gonna have a rough ride.

If you get a new Eibach kit, you just don't use the tall spacers that they send you. Just use the smaller cup and the Eibach bumpstop.....you either need a smaller bolt, or I think you may be able to use the factory bolt.


My kit is one of the very first ones before they included spacers, so I just cut my factory tower down and used the full Eibach bumpstop.

Thanks very much for the quick help, sincerely.

There's a hot rod shop near me that I'm gonna have put them on, I'm sure they can get the bolt that I may need.

I read a thread the other day pertaining to bumpstops that honestly had my head spinning....lol

Eibach may be more complicated to install with all BS

but it won't rust lie bwoody spring...

I would go with more reputable brand

Eibach has no BS install issue , like Dan said just DO NOT USE THE BIG SILVER SPACER . All is required is a 2" long bolt to fit the smaller spacer and can be found at any parts store . So basically bring in the long bolt that comes with the kit and ask for the same bolt but in the shorter size , I used a 2" long one found at pepboys .
