    To anyone considering lowering springs

    Been cruising the forum a while considering mildly lowering my 2019 Sig CX5. After hearing reviews by the rather small sample size of pioneers on this forum, I went with the Eibach Pro-Kit. Result=LOVE IT!! Visually=just what I was hoping for. Handling=just what I was hoping for. Ride/comfort= not much noticeable difference from stock. Only had about 1000 miles prior to modification but had a 2016 also so I know what the stock ride feels like. I've put about 1000 miles since the Eibach upgrade and just slightly stiffer, but just slightly.
    Moral of the story, go for it. Won't regret it. My first post ever and I'm loading pictures so pray for me.
    Also swapped out the exhaust tips and I guess I'll post that in the appearance/accessories area.

    Great job. Looks good.
    I have the first gen and I'm lowered on CS springs(3-1/4"). It is hard core and I still don't regret it. I'm 52, with lower back pain(disk issues).

    Nice job. Got mine lowered on Eibach also. Feel exactly how you do about them. Fully recommended

    How does it BEHAVE differently, though? Stiffer doesn't mean better, how is it playing with the rest of the setup?

    Stiffer wasn't meant to mean better. just stiffer. As in not as soft over bumps, through pot holes. A little more to the sporty side and less Lincoln town car like. Behaves= flatter on curves, less body roll as you would expect with a vehicle that's lower to the ground. I'll rarely benefit from the improved handling as I drive fairly conservatively. I thought it was worth mentioning for those looking for the improved driving experience as opposed to myself who was mostly interested in the aesthetics.

    I hate to ask, but if I want to do this on my 2019, would I negatively affect the warranty on anything?

    I've never done mods on a new cars before (lighting, different size wheels, suspension parts, etc).
    Does the dealer have to prove that the mods caused an issue?
    Do I have to prove that they did not?

    No need for any springs, just get anchorwoman to sit in. (Don*t tell her I said it).

    You know, I was thinking of a similar solution for those stiff seats I'm having an issue with.

    Good one!

    I've thought about lowering, but then I realized I bought the vehicle because I like sitting higher off the ground.

    That said, I always like the pics, looks great.

    For those of you who had your dealer install your springs, how much did they charge you?

    Both look great! When I got my 2019 I said I wasn*t going do the things I did to my 3 such as wheels, springs, sway bars, shocks and more. Damn you for posting these pics, LOL.
