Alright Guys, (bad93bird and Axlehead)
I'll answer both of your questions first then go into details.
Bad93Bird, it's $205.00 for a set (four springs). Vogtland is a great German company - (think Mercedes and BMW; you can't beat German Engineering) they've been making suspension components for years. You can check out their website at: www.vogtland-na.com
. I purchase mine from SCP but spinningwheels may give you a better deal.
Axlehead, I haven't heard of Intrax but that doesn't mean that it's not a good product. I will tell you that you're the first person I've seen in a thread to mention them. I also haven't seen these springs listed on anyone's ride in the readers rides section. http://www.tccoa.com/rides/
- at least not on the 1995 models that I've looked at. You could check for yourself - may be you'll find someone else that has the Intrax that you can ask about them.
In case you haven't already discovered, there are two great companies you can find online that specialize in parts for our cars:
They both sell Vogtland Springs, and I recommend talking to - or emailing - both of them about your personal preferences. I have purchased parts from both spinningwheels and SCP and am very pleased with their service. I have spoken personally with Victor, the owner of spinningwheels, and he's a great guy.
There was a third company, MN12Performance, that also sold parts for our cars.
They are now closed but their site has been archived
They have a lot of great how-to's and other useful information still posted. You can see the archived site HERE
These springs - at least the one's I listed on 11-27-06 are like Coke and Pepsi - they're equally good - It's all a matter of personal preference. If you haven't done so already, check out the Shocks and Springs article (second from the top) at: http://www.tccoa.com/articles/suspension/index.html#
Check out all the articles here for that matter.
The Vogtlands aren't mentioned here but, based on my research; I'd say they're a hybrid (blend) between the progressive and linear rate types of springs. Check out the Sport Springs tab at the Vogtland website
And last but not least. Don't forget about all the other hardware you'll need when lowering you bird. New spring cups for the rear and shorter rear sway bar end links. This would also be an excellent time to look at replacing the shocks and upgrading the rear sway bar.
I hope this helps. Good luck Guys!
