Hi all,
Im going to get some new Eibach springs to match to my Blisteins, only problem is there seems to be a few errors with what actually fits the ST.

Im after 30mm and 35mm drop.

Most websites list the Eibach Pro set up as
E10-35-010-02-22

However on rude racing, E10-35-010-02-22 is shown as a 20mm drop on the front and back
RUDE RACING LINK 20MM

Confusingly though E10-35-010-02-22 is also shown for the Fiesta Diesel as being a 30mm and 35mm drop
RUDE RACING 35MM DIESEL

Every other website ive looked at suggested the E10-35-010-02-22 is the correct springs and that they fit the Fiesta ST with a 30mm and 35mm drop.

Any ideas? Advice? Im very confused now!


Thanks people!

Either will fit but diesel ones are what are sold by ford for the ST as the 2.0 duratec is heavier than the zetec-S and lesser spec petrol engines - petrol ones will lower the car more.

Thanks Si,
So E10-35-010-02-22 are the correct springs?

Why does rude racing list them lowering the Fiesta ST by 20mm and the Fiesta Diesel by 30mm? Thought it would be the other way round? (I assume they are the same springs)

Also why are the E10-35-010-02-22 then sold as giving a 30mm and 35mm drop on the Fiesta ST, if infact its only 20mm?

Thanks

Some people say the ST is already 10mm lower than a standard Fiesta.

So some places sell them as a 20mm drop for the ST, but 30mm on the standard Fiesta (including diesel) to account for the ST already being 10mm lower.

Eibach approved their diesel springs for the ST because of the identical front axel load so you either get them or Rude Racing's "extra" low ones

That makes sense, I went with the Diesel ones in the end, whilst I quite fancy the color of the rude racing ones (they look nice!) I have heard they rub quite a bit over pot holes.
