Call me snooty but I like to stay away from unproven brands for springs because of the fact that they are load-bearing structures. Material quality is paramount particularly with fatigue-resistant parts. Too many inclusions or variations in the microstructure of the metal and your fatigue resistance goes to hell. That wouldn't be a big deal with, say, strut tower bars as they are not load bearing under normal conditions. Springs, on the other hand, can cause a car to go out of control if they fail.
Now, I'm not dogging these brands- I've got no info on them... all I'm saying is make sure the springs you buy are proven, and the material they're made of are top-notch. Personally I'll only buy Eibach or H&R... their material is flat-out top notch. The extra $100 is far cheaper than the possiblity of an accident or fatal failure with unproven product. In my opinion, of course.
they are too pricey and i emailed one of the sites asking about the Sprint Lowering Springs with a 1.8" drop and he said $129 shipped!!!, they were listed @ $159.95 + s/h. so i might do that cause i will have rims with low profile tires soon and will need to try to lessen the gap between.
Make sure the car is able to re-align after such an aggressive drop. You don't want to have to spend extra on adjustable camber arms or whatnot as this would outweigh the price advantage you are motivated by.
first time i lowered my civic...i used sprint 2.25" lowering springs. rode nice. 2nd time i wanted it alil lower...used neuspeed about a 2.5" drop. rode bouncy as hell....3rd time about 1.8 with H&R springs. those were teh best of the 3.
just don't buy neuspeed race springs. u'll have back problems. lol
Wow, is that the pro kit or sportline variety?? 1.5" for the pro-kit would rock... pro-kits generally don't require new shocks as the intial progressive rate is often very close to the facotry linear rate.
