Thinking about changing springs. What aobut these?

Have any of you seen https://secure9.nexternal.com/shared...unt2=654349923
It looks like the best option that I have. When my car was up on the lift over christmas break I noticed my subframe is getting ripped to hell from scraping on speed bumps and uneven entrances to parking lots. I am thinking about getting these springs because I can return to near stock ride height but still get as stiff of a spring as I want. This would also allow me to upgrade wheels at a later date.

But, I've never seen or heard of these being mentioned before. Since they are on bimmerworld and they seem to swear by them, I am willing to trust that they are quality. But I do have reservations about using anything made by eibach. I've heard that they quality has gone way down since they have been americanized and that they're spring end up saggy and bouncey.

If any one knows of any other near stock height springs that are stiffer, I'd be happy to entertain those ideas beacuse it's prolly cheaper than the $400+ cost of these springs. Also i won't be replacing the spring until almost summer.

I have to replace them with something or my subframe is going to get shredded entirely. It's not to a critical point yet, we could still weld over the areas and everything would be fine. Just trying to find out if there are other options for me out there and if anyone has heard of or used these springs before.
