Loweering Question...

Post by Etohboy on Wed Sep 26, 2012 1:02 pm

Has anyone tried these, instead of cutting your front springs? Thanks.

hmmm.... i dont know about these. From my quick search I can tell that people use them for raising more than lowering.

Toyota springs are pretty stiff and actually can get stiffer with a coil or two cut off. With some good short shocks the rides are pretty decent.

Anyone else? Question

im not sure if its only my car but the springs seem a bit soft i think the previous owner heated them .... but anyways im not a fan of those bolt on spring compressors i lifted a truck once and the ride got somewhat worse... if u do decide to get them let us know about the ride quality cyclops

I'm just using generic Honduh Accord coilovers off of craigslist for $35 for a set of four. Use the "rear" springs on the front, and it gives you about infinite height adjustability, and a nice firm ride.
