Hi All,

Looking for some feedback on either Eibach, H&R or Vogtland lowering springs, my car is already lowered 10mm and looking for another 10-15mm max, but I don't want reverse rake(lower at the rear), nor do I want a bouncy ride, can anyone give me there experiences (pros and cons) of the above products.
Thanks.

If you don't want reverse rake, then your best bet is a coil over kit (KWv3 is quite popular for R172s), see, for example this thread....

If you only want the lower-cost springs, then I suggest you check out the Brabus-designed springs for the R172s. I once ordered one from an EBay seller akalincardesign, but ended up selling the springs to another SLKer here... Chris <@imagine>... Maybe he can chime in on how the Brabus springs perform on his car.

Good luck...
