Hello everyone.Im a new member. I just got my 645.I put my 22s asantis and the front of the car looks great.but the back needs to get lowerd a little.I was wondering what type of springs should i use.I dont want it to rub.Sometimes when im going into a shoping center the rear would rub.i know if I lower it,I might have to roll my rear fenders.Here are some pics.As you can see.The front is perfectly on the fender, but the rear has about a 2-3 finger gap.

Car already looks lowered... weird.

I would suggest h&r springs if you want the most aggressive drop and ride. If you want a subtle drop and close to stock ride, go with the eibachs!

I want it close to stock. Do you guys think I can just put the rear eibach springs and not the front,necause the front is already low enough.

I agree, the car looks lowered already.

I have the Eibach Pro Kit. No rubbing with my 21" Hartge.

If you wanted to install just the rears, you can. Keep in mind that due to the different spring rates, you car may not handle the best that it can. As far as rolling the fenders, it really depends on the offset of your rear wheels. So yes, worse comes to worse, your going to have to roll the fenders.


Have you tried taking off your rear wheel, and see if the springs in there are still stock or aftermarket?

The aftermarket springs will have either Eibach or H&R along with part numbers labeled on them. The stock springs will have some random colored marks on them, and sometimes even have a piece of tape or something attached to one of the coils.
