    I have to be honest and say I have MF Springs on my T and they have been on for the last 7/8 years and are amazing.

    I also believe these have been made to work with standard Sachs dampers and the spring rates are matched.

    Do the MF springs work on Cup Dampers as well?

    They will ‘work’ but not as well as a combination of springs/dampers that have been designed to work as a pair.

    Will you notice the difference? I’d say it’s unlikely.

    Dablk & Mikeyjp,

    Good day!
    Project almost finished.
    Things got a bit weird since we've got in Greece Renault OEM shocks from 182 cup by mistake.
    Offcourse my hub was different from cup with 54mm bolt spacing(instead of 60mm cup spacing).
    My engineer had this brilliant idea to modify the suspension from non cup to cup.
    So we got hubs from Renault RX4 and new bearings and we modified a bit the brake calipers to fit to the new hub.
    Springs I got Eibachs prokit lowering about 15mm.
    The result is fantastic and now pending to fit on the Michelin Pilot Sport 3 (any other idea?)
    and paint the rims.
    Check some of my pics. 2.jpg 3.jpg 4.jpg 6.jpg

    I don't think he would give that information out to the public as they could easily be copied.

    Spring rates of the Eibach Pro-kit
    Front 18-27 N/mm; 160- 239 lb/in progressive
    Rear 28-70 N/mm; 248- 620 lb/in progressive

    Spring rates of the Eibach Sportline
    Front 18-27 N/mm; 160- 239 lb/in progressive
    Rear 40-85 N/mm; 354- 752 lb/in progressive

    @JF HELLAS my only idea would if your roads are that bad.. going for a 15” wheel and taller tyre to also improve ride quality. Speedline 2118 wheels are very popular in the uk in 15”.
