|[email protected]||I installed Pirelli Scorpion ATR 255/60R18 tires before I got the lift and they fit just fine, no rubbing. The Eibach lift has made the ride a little more 'sporty', but have sure increased my clearance and reduced sagging when full of cargo. I've gotten use to it and think that's a winning combination for this car.|

|The beast||Im going to tackle the Innaminka, Strezlecki and Birdsville track in one trip. What would your recommended tyre be? Any thoughts on tyre pressures for the dirt tracks?|

Thanks for that input. I figured as much. However, this is food for thought: I asked Eibach this question directly along with some instructions and received this answer from John on their sales team:
“To my knowledge the original struts / shocks are retained.
Installation instructions are referred back to the OE workshop repair manual.”
Can you all share your experience compared with rhis statement? Ty!!!!

Did you have to replace your struts? I was consulting with a Euro car shop here in the USA and they said the ride would be a lot stiffer and the travel would be messed up if I didn't get new struts. What is your, or others' experiences with this? Thank you!

Eibach pro linft Kit
hello, I've also added the Eibach higher laying.
But after a short time there were already noises from the powertrain.
The wear and tear could be seen and heard.
Don't you have any problems with it?

Great thread - exactly what I have been looking for: we've just bought ourselves a DS as a "family adventure vehicle" - and will (from my experience with a Freelander) need a bit of a lift to prevent bottoming out on little trips off road.
It's now 1 or 2 years since some of you guys fitted their lift kits: what is the experience with them? All good?
