    I have put eiback springs and although the cars handling is better ( not perfect) the ride comfort is appalling. I feel I have run=ined my car. The rear sits nice, the front is too low. Speed bumps and pot holes are horrible. I have even contemplated putting back the originals but that would not be a good solution as the car now has more power so will rock like a boat. I was sure they fitted the lower/firmer sportline as the springs are red. I spoke to the GTT who did the work for me and they assured me they are actually pro springs even tho they are red and that eiback actually do not make a sport line for the 500. I am wanting to remove mine and sell and put on the novitec fully adjustables

    hope this helps

    Worth a mention again... H&R are great, smoother ride, more compliant under normal driving, less jiggly, a marked improvement on std.

    Push hard and they then show why H&R are up there with the other top brands!

    Make sure you do the rear bump stop mod - either cut down originals or use Fiat Coupe ones - big difference to ride over bumps whatever springs you are on - but really effective when you lower the rear.

    Just an FYI...

    I put the Eibach Pro Kit in on my Abarth 595 2020 and they work great.

    Would recommend to anyone who is thinking about it.

    I also did the rear bumpstop upgrade whilst I was doing the springs. Ordered them direct from Bilstein at £11 each rather than the £50-£100 each Fiat charge.

    Word of advise for anyone contemplating fitting H&R lowering springs. Spoke to a guy at Koni U.K and he advised that if you lower the rear by 35mm or more that you are in danger of damaging the FSD valve so i went with the Eibach's. In reality the rear on mine didn't lower by a lot but it still looks nice. The front as others have stated sits much lower. Ride's still harsh but handles much better around the corners. :)
