Eibach Springs

So, I’m slightly confused on the topic of lowering springs.. My Tesla is a 2018 LR AWD with stock 18” Aero Rims

I’m leaning towards Eibach Springs (with sway bars) over H&R Springs.

Some spring manufacturers have the same springs for LR AWD & Performance AWD.

Eibach has two products:
Drop on the Eibach for M3 Performance is:
Front Drop: 1.0 Inch
Rear Drop: 1.4 Inch

Drop on the Eibach LR AWD is:
Front Drop: 0.9 in
Rear Drop: 1.0 in

Why the difference? I was under the assumption that the weight and motors are the same for both LR AWD & Performance.

Could I put the M3P Eibach on my LR AWD? Will there be a rake?

So I had this exact same question, I contacted Eibach and found out that only the rear springs are different between the two products. The rep that I talked to couldn't answer why they were different when the cars are virtually identical.
I have a M3P and didn't like how the car sat when on the springs designed for the performance, so I ordered the LR springs instead. I should be installing them in a couple of weeks and I'll update when I do.

Thanks! Was searching all over and no one had the similar question. Thanks!
