Default Questions on spring rates

FHI Ver 5 strut w/ eibach springs is what I'm ridding on now, its a nice ride but bouncy more than I care for, I like the lowered profile of my car though. I was told that the struts i'm running are design for a lowered spring, True? What springs could I maybe give a try, and there ratings, Also would softer springs remedy the bouncing.

Thanks,

Dylan

It depends on what you mean by bouncing, but if the car is continuing to move up and down after the "bump" the usually it would mean struts.

Either your struts are too weak, or they are way too stiff causing the car to sort of bob around as the chassis flex.

i haven't ridden in that combination, but what sort of bounciness are you getting?

have you check your tire pressure? my car starts bouncing over everything when running lower than normal tire pressure with the winter all-seasons.

I've had the struts for about a month maybe more, and its not bouncy from blown struts, Im aware of that cause I ran my stock struts for a while.
