Narrowed it down...

So my Koni Yellows are coming this week. Now I haven't decided on what springs to match them with. I'm either sticking with H&R or Eibach. I don't want to slam it bad... just close the wheel gap. I've done some research and narrowed it down to either H&R Sport, Eibach Pro Kit or Eibach Sportlines. Any opinions would be great. What would be the best combo with my Koni's?

Congrats on the Koni Yellows! I have heard great things. I have the FSD/Eibach Pro Kit combo and they are great and comfortable, but the spring rate on the Pro Kit might be a little on the soft side if you like a more aggressive set up. Depends on what you will use them for, but all of them would be a good match for the yellows. I prefere Eibach because I'm not a fan of the H&R rake.

Also, my understanding is that the Pro Kit and the Sportline are the same rate, just different heights.

Thanks for the info! Yeah i'm not a fan of the H&R rake... I'm thinking sportline but i'm worried it might be to low. I found a guy locally selling his Hotchkis springs off his ZHP so they are also an option! Really excited to run the Koni's. My suspention was in dire need of a refresh!
