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!

I was debating on UP MILD or Eibach ProKit, went with Eibach and got them installed today, happy with the result, trim the bump stop as Eibach recommended, I must say the ride comfort improve at least 10%

@jacksterCali I cannot DM you (TNNEP - too new, not enough posts)... I am looking to get the Eibach pro kit (springs and sway bars) but cannot find any confirmation on what model number will work on the 2020 SR+. Saw you did it on your 2021. Any guidance on which to use? Also curious on where/about how much on getting them installed. I'm in OC but in LA a few times a month for work. TIA

I believe 2020 and 2021 are the same, there is no diff.
Lift Kits, Lowering Springs, Race Springs, Shocks & Sway Bars

As for installation, you can check european auto source | BMW Performance Parts & Services, in Anaheim, or
Home | parts3xpress in Temple City
but most of the place charge between $350 ~ 400, and another $70~100 for alignment , but do it after 2 weeks when springs are settle
