Lowering springs .... What do you have ....

Looking for some lowering springs ....

Preferably not something that rides like .... &@$#!


OTTP
Powell V7
CM
ZZP

❤️❤️ ^^

Also if someone has LNF FE5 front struts I'd also be interested.

Pm me what you have .... I'm keen on all of the ones I've listed basically.

My car has sportlines right now and I've got to get those off.​​​

Sorry i wouldn't do H&R as there definitely not the softest riding spring for any car from what I've heard .... Konis are good though.

I'm seeing that CM's and OTTP are pretty much the best if you want lower than Powell which is definitely the best for handling but not necessarily for looks.

Great picture Snail, but horrible contrasts for what shows the depth of the wheel well and the tires.

Very nice 👌 .... Are those the V7?
YYZ is generally considered the best springs but it's not near as low as the CM or OTTP right?

That looks pretty nice .... And if that rides great than I'd prefer those over anything that will ride stiffer and handling NOT as good.
Plus if this ship from Canada then there's the price point and shipping and no exchange rate frustrations 😀
​​​​​​V7?

What's gonna be cheaper? Likely ottp right? But I'd still have to factor in shipping.

Is yyz factory type ride comfort?

I hate harsh ride .... It makes cars impractical as you can't even do back roads because of the constant smashing and skipping over bumps on turns.

ALSO DO I JUST call Powell for pricing+info?

YYZ has been unanimous in best comfort ride/handling, but it isn't the lowest. I think CM/OTTP are tied to drop an additional 1", and are pretty good too, but Powell parts are the best.
You need to email Gloria -> [email protected]

...Goddamn I wish they would've let me rebuild their site I cringe every time I load it.

They never answered me back, so it's an assumed "no". I even said I would do it for free, just something for me to keep my skills sharp.

I'll say this lol ottp is harsher than yyz. but yyz aren't like stock like some people say they are harsh in a sense.

It could also be since I'm running koni yellows and had them set to half the setting. Now I have them set to 1/2 a turn (almost soft)and my car still rides harsh not bad but definitely harsh where sometimes my wife's complains lol

Did you offer to do it for free? Or just to redo it?

Speaking of which

Just called them (Powell - Gloria) to order YYZ's ....
Both very easy and nice to talk to.

I do wish they had a store to order from, but there's nothing like talking to them to discuss exactly what you need.

They are both helpful as well to say the least.

Thanks to 🐌 SS I will be getting YYZ's

Cheers.

Road fine for me for over 100k. What one considers soft is all relative to that person.

I will for sure .... I like suspension that isn't crashy.

​​​​​​There getting a batch up from the states so it'll be a few weeks ....

Ya I would have preferred 2 front and 2.25 back but hey it's not a big issue .... Handling is the biggest point here .... And not to high ride height.

Does the rear have spring pads? .... If it does I wonder if I could trim them somewhat for it to sit a tad lower.
