here's a pic of an Eibach kit on a wagon.

I think you guys are right, too much drop in front not to drop the back too.

What's up with the bogus drop numbers from Eibach & Prodrive? They both claim ~1" drop in front, but the actual drop is closer to 2.5" - 3" !!!

Well guys, I had to do it, and I gotta tell ya, I'm pretty pleased. Here's what an '02 wagon looks like with Eibachs in front and OEM springs in back:

Looks great and rides great too. The Eibachs are only slightly stiffer than stock. I can hardly tell the difference in ride or handling. There was a slight decrease in oversteer, which is fine with me because it still tends to oversteer a bit (ever since I installed the OEM sedan (20mm) rear bar).

BTW, the Eibach Prokit dropped my car 1.5" in front, a little more than than the Eibach's quoted 1.1".
