Re: lowering springs

I think Megan racing has some for like $160.00, but I wouldn't recommend it. if you needed heart surgery would you want the doctor that charged the cheapest rate??

Re: lowering springs

I say save up abit and save some $ for shocks and springs. If you wanna do it the right wway. The cheapest way is to save up and DO it yourself. Trying to do everything the cheapest way doesn`t mean your stupid. Just search online(ebay) for the cheapest price you can find as long as it`s a well known brand and do it yourself. Shall save you atleast 200 bucks

Re: lowering springs

I had some tein s tech springs a long time ago for $100 used. They were nice with stock struts. But if your wanting to go lower than 2 inches I would suggest investings in some struts as well.

Re: lowering springs

Just search around for ones you feel are good and will get the job done for you.

But if you haven't checked your stock shocks, then I suggest you look into that before. They might be bad since the car is over 10 years old. Happened to me, front shocks were blown and had to drive like that for about a month. Then switched to koni/GC. Your suspension is important so make sure you do it right

Re: lowering springs

I know they'll put me out around 200$ and i'm cool with that, I just didn't want to blow money on a brand that isn't really worth it's quality..
I want to lower it about 2 inches.

Yeh when I got them Neuspeed had Konis that were slightly different than the standard. They might be the same now but I think the Neuspeeds had 5 spring perch rings while the regular konis had 3 and the rod lengths were shorter.

Didn't think I had to explain that one, but I can see how one would think it was a type and not a partnering of two companies.
