Thanks for measuring!! Hmmm...That is a strange ID size. However, the length could be used for the 200 ft/lbs. spring rate.


The Accord springs are a heavier gauge than the stockers.... the stock Subaru springs are 2.5" i/d.

The stock springs have a slightly larger o/d. I'm sure the Eibach springs would work fine.

P.S., What type of VWs are you into.... I'm an A1 chassis freak. I got the Subaru, because I needed a reliable car! Ironically enough, the Subaru left me stranded today.... I have no clue how to work on this thing.

If the stockers are 2.5" then the Eibach stuff would work. The taller springs could be good for those who want to raise the car slightly with the same spring rate. My plans are to do just that. Very likely I will get a coilover sleeve for the front and raise it up slightly. With KYB GR2 dampers.

You have PM about VWs.

yeah the eibach's are they way to go, as you can get whatever size/# you want.
for my coupe i actually bought some eibachs that are 2"shorter, but stiffer than stock..just waiting for new shocks before i install them.
