I got 10" front 7" rear. I think I might swap to 9 and 8 as well. The 10" front seems a bit overkill and I don't like how high up the sleeve the rears are set.

If you have issues with the eibach springs rattling, you can spiral wrap the springs like so (please excuse the blurry cell phone pic):

Thanks man, and it only took two black B13s to get it right. I think I'll leave the dustboots off as I'm getting sick of fussing with the thing :P Hmmm, haven't noticed any rattling yet...

I have a similar setup to what you've posted, GC's with AGX's. My springs appear to make some noise, what did you wrap the tops and bottoms with? Also, is it necessary to have the dustboots installed, it looks like they are squished inside the tighter coiled Eibach springs??

Get rid of those dust boots. Your asking for trouble.

There's not enough room inside the coils for the boots to move freely. They are going to bind.
