Just following up, I have not heard anything from Eibach as of yet. I'll have to give them a call again.

I'm looking into some more options, I'm thinking if I do have a set of springs made, I would like a little stiffer rear, and almost the same front, but slightly lower on both. I'm thinking around 330 lb/in in the front, and around 310 lb/in in the rear.

WAY too soft in the rear. And I'm guessing they're the ones that as you compress it, there's a higher spring rate.. Not a fan. I think I'll try my luck elsewhere instead of Eibach

Konis > coilovers. Konis ride nice and smooth, are super adjustable, and if done right will handle just as well if not better than coilovers

H&R is supposed to make some good ones. I don't know their spring rates though..

Called H&R, talked to Stephanie and she said the front srings are 350 and the rear springs are 295.

So they are a lot stiffer than the Eibach which is a progressive rate and the H&R's are not.

I think I am going to start auto-crossing my Neon this weekend. She is 100% stock right now so I'll get a good baseline on how she handles with 200K mile parts on her..lol

Progressive, that's the word I was looking for. I don't like progressive rate springs. I think I will try out the H&Rs. How much are you offering them for?

Well, the HR springs come in a "kit" so all 4 I can probably do 270.00 plus shipping.

Koni has the rear shocks on their website, but my supplier says they are discontinued.
