pretty straight forward i have very good spring clamps and ramp to thou! makes it so easy, dont even need to take back wheel off to release back spring!!!!

front is more work have to take 3 bolts out top of strut, and release bottom of strut out of hub.......then take spring of no clamps needed for front! took 1 hour 30 mins!

not sure about the lights yet as i was in a hurry to get home.........i hope not thou as i do have the xenon light

Looking to get some of these for the FR when it comes, anybody know why the front is different drop to the rear, and does it look a bit daft ?!

No doesn't look daft, I believe it's to give it a more agressive stance but also so you can still load the boot without it rubbing. Also If you have back seat passengers it soon drops and when you get in yourself some weight is transferredto the back spring.

I have an FR TFSI, here are some pics, they have 18" wheels fitted and the Eibach Sportline Springs.





some more on there...

The 2 hardest parts when changing the springs or putting on coilies are getting the shock out from the arms and the back bolt at the strut mount.

I got my Eibach coilovers fitted on Monday, and ended up setting them at the approx height of the Sportlines which I had previously as the stance and clearance was good and the car was still pretty composed at that height. You dont actually need a spring clamp for doing suspension on the Cupra.







And with the Sportlines on

When I changed my springs, the key item was home made oval shaped separator tool to get the shock out. After that it was a breeze.

On the driver side of the LHD car, there was some heavy clampping of spring needed to get it in place. But I didnt have to remove the axle bolts due using spring clamps.
