Springs are a pain. I don't think Tradition have any S8 springs left, and they are unobtanium used so the best option at the moment is to swap all four for Eibach. The pro-kit range is about the same as the stock S8 spring, or the sportline kit allegedly lowers the S8 about 10mm but I haven't found an actual listing for those yet since Eibach's catalogue is rubbish.

Yes thats it

If you do get the Eibach kit I will buy the three good springs from you rather than throwing them away, then they become slightly less unobtanium next time someone is in this situation

Iíve just ordered the kit from Autodoc. A hell of a lot cheaper than anywhere else.

Iíll drop you a message when Iíve fitted them.

Thanks again.
