Eiback Pro Street Coilovers, Pss9, Ground Control... WHAT IS KING OF THE STREET?

Guys I am considering the Eibach Pro Street Coilovers for $1100, on my 04 M3 with 20 inch Senekas. Are these as good as Ground Control or the Pss9 for street and occasional track use?


I am a noob,when it comes to suspension work so please explain points.


What coilovers offer the best ride quality while lowered...for 1500 or less? I don't want to lose fillings

Thanks for the help...

Ride comfort I've heard that Eibach is best.

The best drop is given by pss9s though IMO.

You have to sacrifice one or the other, your choice!

What do you mean the best drop is the Pss9? Aren't both the Eibach and the Pss9 adjustable?

Personally for street and occasional track use, I would go with the PSS9s. They are IMO the easiest to adjust and the most streetable coilover system. We are running specials on all of our suspension components.

Both are great, if I had to pick I would go with the PSS9's for the drop. Have you considered KW Coilovers?

What Nick said ^^^...

Sure they're adjustable, but pss9 still rocks.

Eibach is better ride comfort though as I read in some comparison review.

TEIN SS with a low setting still give good ride quality.
