Eibach Notes

Common Notes:
The specifications indicated in the TÜV approval are for the classification of the item / vehicle. Lowering measurement in mm quoted is approximate and is based on standard ride height when vehicle when new. You must read all notes prior to purchase.

Please verify before fitting by means of TÜV certificate whether the delivered items (please see marking) are approved for your vehicle (please see area of use).You can find the current TÜV approval on www.eibach.de

In case of non-conformance the items must not be fitted – please refer to your dealer.

Mounting position - you can "read" the mounting position of the springs from the imprint - have them installed just the way you read the imprint.

Wheel adjustment - after completion of the spring/suspension installation, checking the wheel adjustment is required.

Shock absorbers - if the standard shock absorbers are not fully operative anymore and their efficiency has worn off considerably, we strongly recommend to replace those by new standard shock absorbers or by sports shock absorbers.

Here all wheel/tyre-combinations are possible, which are released by the wheel type testing institution. The instructions in the wheel approval have to be adhered to, except for: OE suspension is required.

Depending on engine, gearbox/transmission, equipment and vehicle tolerances lowering may differ from the values given. The dimension of lowering is reduced by the dimension of lowering carried out by manufacturer.

The applicability of our products deals with standard cars. In any case of reconstruction, as the installation of a LPG-(liquefied petroleum gas)-system for example, the usage of our products is excluded.

The stated measurements are referring to new standard cars. Measuring points: vertical distance from the middle of the wheel hub to the bottom edge of the mud wing. Generally the stated measurements are nominal values, which can vary depending on every car.

7. The spring plates installed by the manufacturer are available at DB specialist workshops in sizes 8-23 mm. This allows to vary the lowering indicated here.
