5TH GEN SPRING CHOICE.. WHICH ONES??

so i used to have some NEUSPEED sport springs on my 4th gen and i LOVED them.. now i wanted to get some for my 5th gen.. but i wanted to more of a drop .

NEUSPEEDS: 1.7f/1.5r

everything else i have shopped have been about 2.5f/2.0r

does anyone know if a company makes something more like 2.0F/1.7R???cause i want to go just a bit lower than those Neuspeeds.

ive checked Eibach, Neuspeed,Tein,Tokico so far.. any help?

Ive heard H&R is a good company, but why dont you just get some adjustable springs? Then you can do whatever you want.

Re: 5TH GEN SPRING CHOICE.. WHICH ONES??

I think you should choose your drop based on your wheels/offsets.

So what wheels do you got?

H&R may be too much of a drop, but that might be what you're looking for.

OK.. so i had a 4th gen and didnt have that prob.. so why would an SH do that?..it's pointless to say unless you tell us all why that is? and thats the first i've heard of any SH doing that.. WERE THEY INSTALLED CORRECTLY.. or did someone put the back on the front haha i would die if this was the case.. haha

Re: 5TH GEN SPRING CHOICE.. WHICH ONES??

if you get the H&R you with have to get new shocks too because with that much of a drop youll probably blow them out with in two months. IMO KYB AGX or G2's would be best with H&R's

x2 that's what i'm wondering.

he's prolly thinking the spring rates are higher in the front due to the extra weight of the ATTS, which is BS cuz i've never seen an uneven lowered SH.

I was looking into some Skunk2 springs to lower my Lude (1.8f/1.6r) would i have to replace the shocks too? and what would be best ones to get?

Re: 5TH GEN SPRING CHOICE.. WHICH ONES??

I run Tokico Blues shocks/struts on my Mazda MPV w/ TEIN S-tech lowering springs. It's a great set up. I blew my stock set up with the new springs now everything is sweet. I had skunk2 springs on my STI and the were really bouncy/squishy.
