That I do not know, I think it's for the best performance for the mod, it's recommended AGX.

I will be doing this over the summer. Hoping to start gathering parts over the next couple months. I need to know what the max height is that can be achieved with this setup. I need to have my car higher for winter driving and parking lots. I do want the adjustable setup.

Technically you can raise it up and down the full length of the sleeves...from the looks of it you could definitely have a 4x4 ride height if you wanted to for snow or like rallyx. Besides rubbing all the time I am pretty happy with my set ride height so I haven't messed with it...i might get some lolz though after seeing my car way up in the air.

That sounds like there's plenty of adjustment. What's causing the rubbing?

Quick question:
How much travel do the Eibach springs offer, compared to OEM strut/spring setup?

I ask, because looking at the springs that come with the T3 weld-on kit, it looks like it seriously limits the suspension travel.

Unless I can order taller springs when I order the kit?

Once you sleeve it, Eibach will make you whatever spring you want in whatever spec you want, both rate and dimensions.

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
i dont own a s12 at the moment but trying to acquire one to get rid of my s13 hatch

so, reading through this thread, i had a question on how adjustable the right height is, specifically for the rear. I understand this depends on what spring rate you run, but assuming you run something that's a typical daily spring rate (maybe 400 lb/in) for the rear - what kind of height adjustment can you expect? I want a slightly lower than stock height, the springs that are on my car now are too low and making the rear camber really wonky.
