Bilstein HD struts with Eibach Sportlines

About to do a quick front strut change and was wondering if my new Bilsteins are a good match for the Sportlines or are these springs too low? I also noticed on MM's website they only list the Pro Kit as one the recommended springs to go with the HDs.

With as stiff as those springs are you'd likely be better with the MM sport valved units or different springs or even better some coil overs.

I do have an almost new set of Mach 1 coils I was going to trim 3/4 coil front 1/2 back but had/have no time. I think the HDs can probably handle the Sport lines for a couple of months. Ride is actually not that bad lol.

Yes they will handle it, just not as well as some designed to work in that spring rate range. It won't be that bad, it just won't be as good as it can be.

Should be 650#, same as FRPP C's. Not a problem with the HD's.
