Eibach vs H&R springs.... Pic request

Hey guys, would love to lower my slk350 but i'm having real trouble deciding between the Eibach or H&R springs. I know the eibachs are slightly more oem feel and the H&R's slightly lower/stiffer but i can't really find a decent visual representation on the net. Can anyone please help me out with some decent pics/advice so as i know what to expect after installation of either set?... much appreciated

Hey Silverdevill,

I think JamesSLK55 has his dropped with the Bilstein B12 Kit (Bilstein B6 shocks & struts with Eibach springs) same as mine.

We are both using the rear spring pad #1 . You could effectively lower to some extend by just changing those spring perches. But the springs are what you really need.

His signature has a photo of the side of his car on it. If that doesn't help I could take a few of mine at the wheel well and post.

The difference is I'm using 275x30r19 & 225x35r19 for tires.

So my tires are a bit more tucked under the wheel well than his. His signature photo appears to have the OE 18's on it. Maybe he will chime in.
