    I am going to get some Eibach lowering springs (pro kit) for my car and somebody mention that I have Mcpherson struts, whatever they are (I know nothing about cars) will this cause an issue when I get the Eibach pro kit installed?

    Mcpherson strut is just the name for the type of suspension set up. 95% of cars have Mcpherson struts....

    Have a quick read of this mate...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacPherson_strut

    Ahh right thanks for that, I was just a bit concernd when someone said mcpherson struts. I have heard the terms struts before and know what they are just I have never heard someone call them Mcpherson struts before.

    So hopefully it should be straight forward, now I am just wondering how much I will get charged for the garage to fit the springs.
