They post them for sale on ebay, but even they don't have them. I would email the seller first to make sure they're in stock. I've contacted 3 ebay seller who claim they had the springs, but after emailing them, they replied they wasn't in stock.

I'm looking into the saab tuners springs, they sound like the most likely candidate as this point its only a few dollars difference

I actually favor a stiff ride over a softer one, just a personal preference, but which ones would be better? The 30mm or the 45mm? It doesn't mention a difference in spring rating, only the difference in lowering amount. Anybody have any experience with these? We can take this to PM's if necessary because this is a mod I would like to pursue fairly quickly.

I already had purchased the ebach springs and when the charge never hit my credit card I had to call to find out the part was discontinued, so I'm ready to buy I just need to know who can tell me which one is better? I think the H&R's are stiffer and lower, I live in downtown albany NY and probably should stick with something that rides a tad higher and a bit less stiff to avoid total abuse of my baby, lol, and info is good info at this point. Basically I'm like sitting here credit card in hand waiting to make a decision, lol.

The Hirsch springs are made by Eibach and are a very good ride, a little on the expensive side thought - but worth it!

That I believe, I remember speaking with someone who had both springs in his car and likes the ebachs better because they weren't as stiff the difference in price is only about 20 bucks or so its not a big deal. The saab tuner springs are made by lejfors, forgive me if thast spelling is not even close, the same company that ,akes saab springs now. Supposedly the modify the cirrent spring so the ride is similar, I'm not sure I like the way that sounds?

hasn't eibach not made springs for the 93SS since it came out? Their website always said they did, but we were always referred to H&R...
