Anyone in here use the Eibach spring kit on a Walker Evans shock turbo 4 seat? I am interested in the kit but the front springs are 350/350 seems kinda stiff for trail riding?

If you have a heavy car, and loaded up with people and gear? (Most 4 seaters) Then those are good rates. If your a lite weight traveler in the 4 seater? Then those could be a little on the firm end. But it will allow you to run the adjuster on the softer side with the extra spring rate help.

I am an Eibach dealer, I can sell the Eibach kits with Springs rates that more fit your personal needs. Eibach is limited to only 2 kit choices per car. This is to fit the “majority” of car owners. So you can’t change or ask for different spring rates that might work better for your personal set up.

But I swap out the spring rates to fit the customers needs.

I purchased the eibach stage 2 kit for my 2018 4 seat turbo. Major improvement over stock. However the recommend ride height from eibach made it not want to turn. I am a full 2” lower in the rear to what they recommend. It handles well there.

How much weight have you added? Are you looking for comfort or performance.

I'm on a 2 seater XPT, that comes with 260 primary on the front. I feel it's too soft. And then I added 75-80 lbs of winch, bumper, windshield, and roof. My napkin math said I needed 290lbs up front just to correct for my add-ons. I've actually ordered both 300 and 325lb front primaries. I suspect I'll want the 325, for I'm looking for a lot less dive. Then went a little heavy, 250, on the tender. I'll ride that combined rate for little hits and I expect I'll be happy with 325 coming in to stop bigger hits.

Does 350 still sound like a lot? I've seen mentioned in threads I've read here that 350/350 on a XPT4 is a little stiff, but I've also seen guys with loaded machines go higher. Heck, what do you weigh?

I would think 350/350 is pretty close for a xpt4, although I might wonder about 300/350. Maybe buy from somebody that will offer to let you exchange springs if you're unhappy? Or build your own and embrace the ability to adjust on your own. At a cost of course. But buy

Comfort for trail riding. I would like to see the 300/350. Something softer to ride on through slow speed chatter. However the valving on this 19 is really stiff. I still have not done anything yet,but I will be taking compression out of the shim stack. Nose dive and body roll does not bother me at high speed. My 2 seat XP was set up that way with the front higher than rear,and I was able to run hard when needed.
