Went to a place called "1320 Performance" Linden, New Jersey (Eibach
> Authorized Installer)

They installed the springs...and Koni yellow Adjustables

They Switched my front Spring pads from #5' to #3's.

Everything looked great, but when I got the car off the alignment rack one side of the car was way off with camber vs. the other.

The right side was way negative and differed from the left between 0.5 Degrees and 0.7 Degrees

I went back to 1320 and told them that I thought something was wrong and they should look at the car...

They said.."lets wait until you come back for your exhaust....I agreed

Driving home the car started bouncing like I was going over moguls on the ski trail..

> Went to the dealer today..

Dealer indicates:
> "You have (3) Eibach springs installed and one of your rears is still factory"

"Also...The metal inserts are missing from both of your front spring pads...."

> They put all (4) stock springs back on until I could iron this out.
>
> I have a call into 1320 performance in an effort to get this installed all over again (CORRECTLY)
...without charging me 2x.

Stay Tuned...The installer is "1320 Performance" Linden, New Jersey.

Only 3 springs? That's crazy... and they are supposed to be an authorized installer? I am getting Eibach springs installed in the next few weeks... if I decide not to attempt it myself... I will be sure to double check the installer for all 4 springs to be in place. I would definitly punt too... who knows what they might do next when you go in there expecting them to do re-work for free...eventhough its their fault in the first place.

They charged about $300 for the springs and shocks being installed. At least I have the shocks in!

Linh - Thanks for your hard work and the pictures that show how to do this!

I may go this route.

Good talking to you as well Linh.

Thanks again.

Over the weekend the Eisenmann Exhaust came.
Already installed. Very, Very Strong rumble now!

I have the Race Exhasut with 2x83MM End pipes.
