I love those Ohlins Road & Track coilovers. Wanted to go that way, but the cost was more than I could justify (no Track for me.) Also figuring out the rear spring solution left too much room for error. Glad to hear you seem to have it worked out.

I went 1/2 turn from full hard on the fronts with the Swift springs on, and the ride was miserable. A little tramlining, and it crashed hard over every seam and pothole. I thought my front tires were shot.
I liked it 1.5 turns from soft with those springs. But I felt that's a little more rebound than necessary for the Eibachs, on my roads.
