Just wondering what your guys opinion is on these? Seems like it might be worth it for the money. Is anybody running these? I'm Not too worried about ride quality, just want an adjustable ride height.

That's what I ran. But then again, I raced the car. You might miss the ride of the car very, very quickly.

Did you have any problems with them?

No problems at all. But it definitely didn't make for a comfortable ride.

Joey, was this what you had on the coupe?

It is. It's actually been transplanted into the corolla (swapped out the springs though).

In the grey celi I was running 450fr and 350rr. With the Konis all the way around and the ST rear bar it was a pretty good match. If I kept racing it I might have gone up a bit in the front and ran a little more bar. Hard to say now. I've learned a lot about suspension adjustments and have a lot better tools for checking and adjusting than I did back then.

What do yousuggest for spring rates for a street car? Possible autocross from time to time?

Um... well... hard to say. With some Koni Yellows 325fr 275rear might be a decent start. But I honestly don't know. Springs are cheap, play around with it.

Ride quality has nothing to do with the product, just the spring rates.


OMG really? Yes I'm well aware of this.
