Default Springs and Stuff

Hey Guys! I've got my car in decent running order. I need to make some changes on how it sticks to the ground.

I've been looking at some lowering springs that will provide a performance feel while still being semi comfortable.

I found 2" Lowering springs with skunk2.
Spring rates as followed;

Front Spring Rate (Tender / Main): 257 lb-in / 559 lb-in
Rear Spring Rate (Tender / Main): 112 lb-in / 485 lb-in
Drop (Front / Rear): 2.25 / 2.00

I know there are a ton of really great springs out there. Does anyone have any opinions? These guys are only $189.00.



Also, I want to make sure right off the bat that I don't get any wheel hop, with minimal vibrations to the chassis

What are some opinions on inserts vs poly mounts? Brands?

I've got a dohc zc with stock hf axles as well. Not really sure which ones will work with my hubs and tranny

Progressive spring rates will do a lot to maintain daily driving comfort while providing the characteristics you want during spirited driving.

Springs are only part of the equation though. Make sure you match them with some well built dampers that will handle the higher end of those spring rates. Shitty dampers will kill your ride even if you use the best springs money can buy. I have my doubts the stock dampers will handle the higher end of those spring rates.

Thanks for the feedback! That's really good advice. My shocks are aftermarket, non oem specs. Nothing super special though. Non adjustable unfortunately as well. they are not for lowered springs. I'll definitely be looking into some higher end shocks.

Any suggestions on some that are reasonably priced? Or should I just be looking for a set of coilovers?

What he said. Probably one of the best one and one setups out there.

If you are set on your springs I would go with Konis or perhaps Bilsteins. Their shocks should handle the lowering and the extra spring rate just fine.

Energy suspension Inserts are good to prevent wheel hop at a certain power. And they not vibrate that much as rigid mounts. If you want you prevent more wheelhop i recomend you inserts and a megan racing traction bar. It's a good combo for daily drive.
