    Hey Lincoln, from what I have read, the pro kit moves the roll resistance forward quite a bit. (The fronts are a lot stiffer than stock but the rears are only a hair stiffer than stock.) I would expect this to make the steering feel quicker, but also cause a lot of understeer. If you got a set of adjustable sway bars such as the Hotchkis set offered for the Z, you would be able to adjust the car's balance so there is less understeer or even oversteer, if you wanted.

    However, your stock shocks' days are numbered with aftermarket springs like these. So if you plan on keeping the springs and getting sway bars, you should also plan on some aftermarket shocks.

    One last thing, the stock springs are linear and will behave differently than progressive springs regardless of the rates.

    Hey, My name is Lincoln. I have an 05 350 with 14k on the clock. Fairly new. Just put 19X9.5, 19X11 Avant Garde M310'S & WAS VERY HAPPY. The car handled very well. The wheels & Hankook Ventus V12's really made it stable & I could push it really hard & was almost impossible to get out of control on the road. Track might be different. I blindly bought a set of Eibach Pros & my handling went to ****. I pushd it until it faiiled in both configs & impressed with stock with wheels & it immediately fell apart with the Pros. Eibach's tech advisor is stumped. He thinks it should ride better. I'm stumped and am about to go back to stock. Do you have any suggestions? I'm thinking maybe the CG was tranfered forward & thus a got increased pillar roll or the springs were just plain softer. IDK. Eibach is progressive & stock is linear. Stock starts at 314-440 and Eiback starts 296-380 I believe. I would do coil overs if I knew it would improve handling & be close to 1200. I heard good things about this phase 2 kit??? I wasn't unhappy with stock & with only 14k miles do you think putting them back on is the best bet. The shop says use a stiffer sway bar. I think with the spring issue already screaming at me, this will only unduce understeer with body roll to boot. Thoughts?

    Thanks, Lincoln
