You Want to say, H&R are better than EIBACH ? I Drove once peugeot 406 coupe with EIBACH KIT and it was so hard, like a some sport's car.
Dunno how it will be in partner/berlingo.

Tell me, maybe do You know how hard/soft is H&R, much harder than series, or this EIBACH ?

im not saying H&R are better than eibach, ive always used eibach on my cars, just seems the berlingo sits nicer being a 40/20 drop, the eibach/musketeer set up is 30/10, have a look at this thread http://www.berlingo.org/showthread.php?t=20999 some people say the H&R is a little stiff at low speeds if larger 17/18" wheels fitted but the overall improvement is worth it as it stopped the twitching and rumbling some berlingos suffer from, on standard 15/16" some are saying it feels spot on. the standard suspension feels quite well set up with the 18"s im running so although I did a lot of homework on what seems to be the best set up ive left mine alone for now

Thank You Smile You helped me to decide witch one. Of course H&R win, I have got 225/45/17 where is much more free space between tire, and mudguard than 215/50/17.


Tell me, is there any chance to get lower consumption ? Or it is only placebo :X Hehe i know, who cares consumption if driving van on 18"s Big Grin

I have noticed my mpg dropped around 2mpg, the alloys do weigh more than the steelies and also tyres have dif energy ratings A-E but at the same time I also fitted front and rear colour coded bumper panels and a K&N panel filter so maybe they could be the cause, my tyre size im running now 225/40/18 are within 0.47% rolling radius to the original 195/65/15
