dang, I hoping that you woulda said no. Killer deal on on Eibachs. $99 for the set but they are for a 3.8. Would they cause some considerable damage or ?

It won't cause damage, but the handling characteristics of the car won't be right. The front end might actually sit lower than it's supposed to.

Not sure how that could be. If the description is right, as it shows them being the same rates as the V8 Eibach springs and they have a 1/4" higher free height, they should sit a tad higher.
