Eibach Sportline Springs

I'm after some of these.

Will they just be a straight swap from standard springs? Or will I need to get wheel balancing or re-alignment too??

Thanks

Cheers. Can geometry be done anywhere? Does it need to be specialist or will kwik fit suffice say?

What actually is geometry compared to alignment, is it to do with camber?

Think most places like kwik fit can do it. Weather you want them to is another matter! I should have a set of eibach for sale come the weekend. 7months old, PM me:)

I don't have a clue how hard a job it is lol!! Don't know of anywhere else near me yet that would do it.

Why you getting rid of them?

Tbh when I had full interior they lowered the front and rear was left standard in my eyes! Easy to fit but a garage should fit in an hour? Max 2?

Touch wood there coming off at the weekend but can't quote on that.

The drop was noticeable on mine, no problems with rubbing. Can go over reasonable sized speed bumps with 3 adult passengers.

lol. There's nothing to adjust on a Clio (tell a lie, but I wouldn't call setting the toe a "geometry setup").

Just take it to Kwik Fit or whatever your local tyre shop is for an alignment if you remove and refit the suspension. Technically shouldn't need to be done as all you're removing is the top mounts, but it's good practice especially since they're not bolted into the chassis.

OK thanks Jeff. I literally didn't have a clue hense why I'm asking. Kwik Fit it is then, unless my mechanic recommends someone else locally.

If you've got a "Hi-Q" centre near then my local one only charges £20.95 for alignment/tracking. Presume they'd all be the same. Kwikfit, ATS will be about £40. Geometry setup normally includes Camber and Castor setup where possible. Not worth it on standard shocks etc.
