Lowered Springs

Anyone have any experience with thesehttp://lightningmotorsports.com/susp...h/g-52942.aspx springs? Was thinking of getting these with the yellow Koni's shocks?

Im unsure of their quality but you can have Vogtland shipped to your door for 240ish. And those are great springs. What bothers me is that the site you posted doesn't tell you that shorter rear links are required for a 1.6 drop. I'd go with Vogtland again just because they are great springs and I believe to be proven many times here on this site.

Its slow, Really.

So if I were to go with the vogland would I still need the shorter links? It's been a while since i've done any kind of work on a car and even then they were mostly imports that I worked on.

you dont need shorter endlinks unless you have an aftermarket swaybar.

Is that right? I was told I needed them. Only in the rear though.

I didn't use different links when I put the H&R springs on my car. Been working fine for several years that way. I think the H&R springs are only 1.5" drop though, maybe that makes a difference.

I doubt .1inch would make a differance. Im currently not running a bar in the back cause the slicks wouldnt clear. Ima bolt it back up and see if the links fit.

I've always run stock endlinks..? That includes Eibach, Intrax, and even when it was bagged. I'm running an SC bar in the back.

Emotion for you maybe? idk. But thanks for the link. I still have yet to try this out. I have brand new stock links from before I bought the springs. When I get time I'll put them on and snap a pic.
