i´m guessing eibachs are pretty nice, but how do munroe springs compare? stiffer? poorer quality? availability is the same for me, i can get them both quite easily, but i´m wondering which would be better to go with for the price

I have the monroe sensa-trac and they handle pretty good,

I would say there better quality than the orginal...

But that´s just me, i can take curvs faster now, what do i know.

Yes, they do handle a bit better, but, they are about the most uncomfortable things on the planet. I have em on my car and I can feel almost every pebble on the road. Can you imagine what pot holes are like? :-o Spend the extra dough and go with the eibachs.

true, it´s the springs that lower the car but if you get the wrong kind of strut with them when you hit a bump you could bottom out the strut and you could damage it.

Eibachs and ZX2 Tokicos are a wonderful mate. So wonderful in fact that Ford mated them up on the S/R. ;-) Another good combo is Sprint springs and ZX2 Tokicos. The Sprints give a little more drop than the Eibachs, but still handle and ride nice.

go to www.oemfordparts.com get the ZX2 S/R Tokicos and the Eibach Prokit they go together are very well priced on that site and are an excellent combo...you will need new strut bearings however and they lower your car about an inch...

i´m getting eibach´s from an alberta company where my cousin works, just a bit less than eomfordparts after taxes / shipping. i´ll probably get tokico´s either from there or from my cousin´s work. thxs fer the link though!

oh, and how much would strut bearing be? would i need those for installing just the eibachs?

here´s my cousin´s work site:

Impressions Auto
and BTW, THEY HAVE 2nd GEN SCORT BODYKITS FOR SALE!!!!! i´ll post this in a new thread too.

I can´t believe you used munroe and eibach in the same sentence :-o :-Y ... lol, The eibachs kick the shit out of munroes... munroe is more of a brand for the grocery gettin moms who need to replace their struts.

I sell monroe stuff at work. Yeah the sensatrac stuff is nice, however, you really can´t beat Eibach when it comes to suspension. I would go Eiback all the way... if you cant go eibach, Tokico makes a nice strut for the Escort.

I think you´re going to be very happy. It´s neat feeling the way the progressive rate spring works and I´m impressed with the rebound control of the Tokicos. Feels like I´m strafing the road. But I blethered on enough about it in my review so I´ll stop now. Tell us what you think when you have them installed.
