The bummer is my install is scheduled for Thursday which means probably not enough time to get bumpstops sent to me.
how did the install go today? did you reuse the oem front bumpstops and trim the rear 15mm? I ordered the same spring kit for my 2019 Sig and they just arrived. Any additional parts we should get to help with alignment tire wear? I’m running Sottozero winter run flats (hopefully year round) so hoping alignment can get close to dead center.
 
I got the bump stops ordered from eibach directly via overnight fedex, and they arrived right at the buzzer. I will drop the car off tomorrow morning to have them put on.
And yes as mentioned, if you order the bumpstops you need quantity 2. They do not come as a set.

Let me know the difference between the stock and the one from eibach. I ordered mine from eibach. Spring arriving Friday. Installing when it's spring for me.
 
I'm sorry, I thought I took a pic of the bump stops from Eibach ,but it appears I did not. They are far shorter than the stock bump stops. In the attachments, I added a shot of the stock ones. The eibach bump stops end at about the black line of the stocks.

I had the dealership put the old springs in the box the Eibachs came in. You can see the difference as the stock springs dont even fit in the box.

Everything went well and I'm happy with the subtle drop.
I noticed much less body roll when doing turns on the way home.
I tried to take a couple of pics in between it being freezing out and getting some snow.

Looks great and thanks for the instructions!

Did they do an alignment and what camber specs did you get, esp. rear? I got the camber parts (SPC front, Megan rear) to help avoid tire wear.

Could you tell me which part number camber arms you bought? And was it for 17+?
Thanks

Hey, yes mine is a 2019 Sig but looks like the rear camber arm is the same across gen1 & gen 2. Haven't installed these yet so can post an update to confirm it works in a week or two.

Sure let me know. When I lowered my 2014 Mazda 3 with Eibach springs, I didn't need any camber kits. The alignment was all within spec. after adjustments.
Did you get an alignment yet after lowering it?

Will have the prokit springs installed this week or next, trying to decide if I add the Bilstien B6 shocks as well ... we don't seem to have a Bilstien B8 option for the CX-5 gen2, but the B6 is probably fine.

Our engineers will build a B6 Performance shock for an application and then test with aftermarket lowering springs, if during that test the shock still performs correctly we will not develop a B8.

I think I just bought the last Eibach E10-55-021-02-22 - PRO-KIT in North America. Tdotperformance had 1 more in stock. I'm a lucky Canadian 😁🤙🏼

Getting my Eibach E10-55-021-04-22 installed on 2019 Sig tomorrow. Was going to get the Bilstein B6 shocks but TireRack says they're special order only, so going with stock shocks. Have a camber kit too if they need it, will see what they say.

In my opinion, it is a good idea to have more adjustment, then less. They can adjust it, to be in the green zone(alignment report), but maybe it's at the edge of the green zone, or not right in the center.
