Just wanted to follow up. I never heard back from the guys at Eibach. reached out with many emails and contacted people I know that know him. ZERO customer service. I reached out to Eibach in Germany and they never responded too. Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up, I know mine was. I'm super let down and pissed. 

 

That being said I ordered a set from MYC.

I was planning on ordering lowering springs from Eibach for my other car. Screw them. Plenty of other suppliers available.

Well I did the driveway install this weekend. It was my father’s day present to get some time to install the springs. What a pain to take the cowel apart and take the wipers out. 

 

Poweder coat or what ever they used on the springs was not evenly coated. But all in all seams okay. Rides a bit stiffer and seams to handle good. And the springs got here in 3 days.

Where did you see it on Facebook? I am curious to see people in the real world?

Looking nice.  Refreshing to see a Transit Connect that is not a commercial vehicle.  Around here, Transit Connects are all over the road; and almost every one of them is in commercial use.  You haven't had any problems with the lowered ground clearance?  No scraping on driveways, bottoming out on hills, or scraping?

that's a negative. seems to be a non-issue. but that being said I have lowered just about every vehicle I owned for the last 25 years. it rides a little stiffer, that's expected and okay with me.

My fingers are crossed.  Sooner or later, somebody will add airbags and/or hydraulics to their van.  And those wire spoke wheels.    I can't wait to see the Low Rider Magazine Transit Connect.

This is without any spacers. If you add spacers, they will protrude for sure out past the fender edges. Also your wheel offset makes a difference in this as well. If you get the correct size wheels (bolt pattern and offset) then no you don't need any spacers or adapters. I'm not saying it can't be done if you prefer that look, simply that it's something to note for those wondering.

The drop is spot on there.

@Project bike truck 

Those Focus ST wheels look great on the TC. I may try to look for a used set on eBay rather than go aftermarket.

 

MYC has the perfect drop. Eibach only drops 1" in the rear.

Those who lowered with MYC MK2 springs, did you also install the GAZ MK2 shock absorbers that they recommend? Don't want to buy what I don't need, as I dont haul much besides a light road bike or a couple of people

I never got rear shocks and I know I need to. I was going to try and figure out a shock length for a KYB or something rather than the adjustable ones. But it definitely needs shorter shocks. They bottom out without it.
