    I am ready to purchase springs but i am having different ideas on which ones to purchase. Mostly everyone is telling me to purchase the Tein s- springs, but i am still having thoughts about Eibach because of its good reviews. Anyone have any ideas or comments on which is the better choice?

    Both are good, but if you're not worried about price, I would get the Eibachs over the Teins.

    Eibach for sure. I've heard that the Teins are bouncy.

    Yes, get the eibachs for sure. The Tein S techs are called dress up master, they are for show only, they suck.

    all spings are bouncy, that where correct dampers come in


    i have teins and tokico blues on my hatch and they do just fine. not too aggressive, which is nice if you have shitty roads, but a huge improvement over stock

    Well, the S-Techs also have really low spring rates (for aftermarket springs) which is probably why people bitch. If you want more performance, defnatly go with the eibachs.
