    Just installed the Eibach's Pro's on my GT2 AWD last Friday. Much nicer looking and riding. I agree with Steve O that it improves handling the bumps in comfort mode. Also, the back end is a lot less waggy, if at all. Here's a couple shots, before/after.

    So I'm getting my eibach put on friday and I'm little concern about the ride quality. Right now I would say the ride is perfect. I daily my car with the wife and kids in the car. On the ride from san diego to arizona the wife was saying how comfortable the ride is. Now I dont mind the bounceiness of the soft spring. I can work with the body roll. I just want to get rid of the gap. Question is how rough or stiff will the ride be after the install? Will it be just like "stock"? Will my teeth chatter going over rough roads?

    To me, the ride at normal cruising speed is better and more compliant over the bumps while eliminating the rear end wag. My girlfriend, who does not like the car in general, noticed the difference and was surprisingly pleased with the improvement in the normal cruising speed ride. She is one to be observant, as our old car was a Cadillac CTS which she loved, and did not like my purchase of the Stinger.

    Net-net: smoother ride over normal plus better handling in corners and no rear end wag.

    The ride has improved to me. I did aftermarket wheels and tires at the same time which in other cars has Usually meant a compromise of style to ride quality . Usually improving looks a ton but cheapening the ride.
    But honestly In this car I went to 20 wheels and was able to keep a lot of rubber as the drop with eibach is noticeable but very conservative . The ride resembles the height and gap of bmw M cars not the look and feel of early 90 to 2000 import spring swaps that had the effect you are worried about.

    Another note is that the stock springs are not graduated and only have one spring rate where the eibachs have multiple spring rates.
    The ride stiffens the harder the springs are compressed so they don't stiffen unless you need to be
