Whats a good drop to use with OEM Shocks?

I was looking into getting some lowering springs. But my ride feels good still even though my ride had 194k+ miles on it. So was wondering how for of a drop i can go without ruining my good shocks. I know Tein makes an H type spring that drops it a little less than an inch on each side. But i was wondering if the Tanabe Racing springs would work to since they only give you a 1inch drop all the way around. But i know not to go to 2 inch since they start feeling bumpy and destroy your OEM shocks/struts.

Tein springs have always ridden well in my experience.

Re: Whats a good drop to use with OEM Shocks?

I'm also a complete noob, but was wondering the same thing and didn't want to start a new thread...any input would rock, especially about doing an inch to 1.5 on the stock struts...

Re: Whats a good drop to use with OEM Shocks?

Drop doesn't matter. What matters is spring rate. The harder the spring, the bouncier the ride will get, and the extra force will also wear out your struts faster.

Re: Whats a good drop to use with OEM Shocks?

No matter what drop you go with, using lowering springs on stock shocks is going to wear them out prematurely. Than once you blow out your stock shocks, you need to tear everything apart AGAIN to replace all of them.


God, what don't people get about "do it once, do it right"? Unless they enjoying doing everything 2 times.

Re: Whats a good drop to use with OEM Shocks?

I used to enjoy doing things twice.

...then I got lazy and went straight to coilovers. Hell, I was almost too lazy to level them out them after I first installed them and got them settled a bit. LOL.

Re: Whats a good drop to use with OEM Shocks?

What Neck said is true. If you worried about destroying your stock shocks, just don't get lowering springs. Just save up a little longer and get a proper setup.

Re: Whats a good drop to use with OEM Shocks?

I have decided to try out the Stagg Shocks that run pretty cheap even though they are made in china they have gotten really good reviews for Chevys, toyotas, honda, lexus, and other rides. The only bad review was for a toyota but he later wrote that it was his springs that were messed up and took back the bad review. So i'll try them out and write a review after i have had them for about 3 months or so. By the way i'll combine it with some Tanabe racing lowering springs.

Re: Whats a good drop to use with OEM Shocks?

I wouldn't recommend cheap or expensive springs on your current shocks because I've had tein s tech springs on my 165k oem shocks for awhile. The ride is nice but of course, eventually noticed the shocks got worse. FYI, bad shocks will kill your bushings/ball joints. Not worth your time. Save up for some F&F Type 1 as beginner. Up to you.

I would love to but i know from friends that if you don't have damper on coilovers they suck on crappy roads. And Megan racing makes the cheapest coilovers for ludes with damper and they start at $650. Which and at my current rate i can't afford unless i save up for like 3-4 months and im just not in a waiting mood nor do i want to change them when it starts snowing out here in kansas. So paying for springs and gas shocks for around $360 is right up my alley(insert dirty joke here)

Re: Whats a good drop to use with OEM Shocks?

I've had a pretty extreme drop on my OEM shocks that had somewhere in the neighborhood of 150k on them with no problems at all. Even when I switched over to Koni/GC set up they were still good. !!PERSONAL EXPERIENCE!!!

Don't go cheap. Do it once, and do it right. Go Coilovers. If you have to save up, save up. It's what I've been doing.

Re: Whats a good drop to use with OEM Shocks?

Op is hinting his on a budget

Using lowering spring on stock shocks is not
Good but its not so bad that you car will ride like crap
You prollie wont even feel the difference

If lowering spring is what you can afford for now then go for it
Better than stock height . Lol

Thats the deal.
Kybs and tokicos are good but i just don't have the dough to spend on a $260 shock setup. I have read enough reviews on Staggs to want to try them out and see if they are good as they say they are.
Reason im going so cheap is because I might have to sell it. around january so i don't want to spend a boat load of dough. Since i know i won't get my money back!

Re: Whats a good drop to use with OEM Shocks?

I sold my STAGG shocks to Tommytran and I asked him how he likes them and he enjoys them a lot!! I have heard many other good things about STAGG but just remember, they are not track proven or anything like that so don't expect Cadillac quality lol.

So.... you KNOW you're gonna sell the car in 3 months.
You KNOW you're not gonna make your money back by selling the car.


And you STILL wanna just throw $400 down the drain???

Please for gods sake, just send the $400 to me, I promise I can put that money to better use than just tossing it away.

And you STILL wanna just throw $400 down the drain???

Please for gods sake, just send the $400 to me, I promise I can put that money to better use than just tossing it away.
Well like i said i don't know, i just might keep it and drive it to Cali but im not sure besides i might just start removing the parts i installed and installing back the old ones. Then sell the parts here.
