Question, doesn't the car slightly dive in the turns upon hard braking given that it rakes the car forward. My issue with springs as well is the fact they lower the car more in the front than rear to improve the look / fill in the gap. Sleeve Kits can prevent this from happening.
No, the change in rake does not cause more dive because lowering springs also have increased spring rates. The car squats, lean and dives less due to the slight increase in spring rate. The amazing thing about the Eibach springs is that the ride quality remains the same, due to use of progressive springs and not increasing the rate so much that the ride becomes bouncy. Here is one of my vids from last HPDE. The EDC was set to normal mode and you will notice the car remains quite level cornering, even under hard braking.
