To answer the question, no they're not the same. Eibach will give you a lower drop. Most people who get the F Sport springs get rid of them cause it only lowers like 1.3". It depends in what you want. If you search you can see samples of both on here.

I saw the link and those lol like Eibach's (black). F Sport springs have always been blue. I looked an eBay and found Eibach springs for $255 plus $49 shipping to Canada. So $400 is too much.

6.3kg/mm

F-sport blue final rates

This..
The Eibach Pro-Kit and the F-Sport springs are exactly the same. The F-Sport springs ARE the Eibach Pro-Kit Springs.

Which one did you buy? There was a grey one and a white one lol. I'm probably just going to leave it pretty stock. Just lower with h&r springs cause i still gotta get into my driveway for garage. I almost got an f sport exhuast but got greedy and didnt accept 750 LOL regrets now.
