    Neu-F or Eibach Sportline?

    The goal is lowering without compromising comfort. No racing/tracking, just a daily driver.

    I've always heard the NeuF are the way to go. Best Spring rates and such.

    I've got the Eibachs. My only complaint is the rear feels "springy". But I believe that to be a shock issue more than a spring issue. The Neu-fs look to be lower in the rear. Something I didnt want when I have anyone (rarely) in the back seats. I dont like the rear squatting lower than the front.

    Don't forget that the rear shocks on all the models are a major weak point. Personally I would upgrade the rear shock before the springs.

    I plan on swapping the rear shocks with KYBs and upgrading the rear torsion bar. I just need to decide on springs.

    Good plan IMHO. BTW, as mentioned the comfort between Nue-f's and stock Abarth springs should be close to the same since the spring rates are close. I think that the Eibach spring rates are not as close.

    Right, majority have stated the NeuF are comfy and more similar to stock so not as harsh.

    I've had both Neufs and sportlines.

    neufs were nice but i wanted to go lower.
    sportlines were lower in the front but not as low in the back as the nuefs.
    I removed the rear top spring isolators and added 5/8 heater hose to the coil to keep it from clanking metal to metal. now it sits perfect IMO.

    with that being said since the sportlines are lower than the nuefs your ride will be a bit harder than the nuefs. less shock travel = tighter/harder ride. But thats ok with me. The way I see it is if it doesn't scrape once in a while your not low enough. roads are pretty good around here too and never ever will it snow in Miami.

    front sway bar - some people like it but doesn't really do much. the front end is low and small. all the top heavy weight is toward the back and thats what causes the body roll. so the rear bar is what you want.
