No the springs aren't on yet, this time tomorrow they will be.

I ordered them from Ben at RG Sport, great guy and fast shipping!

Very nice color combo and good mods! Please share your thoughts on Eibach springs and post pics. I'm thinking of lowering a bit, but I don't want harsh ride. In my e90 I went with coilovers and ride became very harsh, but I think F15 x5 has way too soft ride initially, so maybe Eibach will make it just right

Picked up the truck from the shop today after getting the Eibach's installed. I was after an aggressive stock look with my mods. Hope you enjoy

Looks very good, but how is the ride now comfort wise? Less body roll now in turns?

Ride for me is perfect, body roll was nearly eliminated as our handling was to loose for me from factory. Our roads here in AZ are in pretty good shape but you will feel aggressive holes are bumps a little more.

Overall I am very very pleased with the ride quality and stance. Would recommend
