    Has anyone successfully installed eibach springs on the 2019 GT1 RWD? Speaking with a local shop in Charlotte they told me that Eibach has not yet fully tested and certified their springs on the 2019 model year.

    Let us know. Not sure why they'd be different though.

    K&N doesn't even list the 3.3l engine as available on their 2019 Stinger product selection page.

    Their 2018 drop-ins worked just fine.

    My point is - just because a manufacturer hasn't tested it, that doesn't mean the version for a prior year won't work.

    The vehicle is a carry-over, so things are the same with the addition of a few missing features (none are suspension related), they will work there same.

    I installed them on my 2019 AWD. The ‘18 and ‘19 are identical.

    The local shop here in Charlotte relayed that message.

    When I get back to Charlotte am dropping my car off to get springs done.

    Anyone in NC have the Borla exhaust?

    How was the drop? I keep hearing that the front isnt as low as the rear, or at least looks that way? Is that true?

    It’s a bit lower in the rear but barely noticeable on mine so far. A hell of a lot better than the stock 4x4 stance!

    I don’t have any after lowering as it’s in winter storage. Installed the springs in November, took it for a drive and parked it for the winter.

    Camber wear can be negated by zeroing toe. He should ask the alignment tech to zero his toe to counter the lack of camber adjustment up front. Camber isn’t an issue on the rear as it’s adjustable.
