I think I am going to need to replace my suspension soon, not too sure but feels a little mushy. Thought I would lower it at the same time. Thinking about the H&R Touring Cup Kit. Anyone running these? Is there a better route, please share. Don't want a harsh ride, but a little lower stance and firm ride would be nice.

i think you probably want the h&r sport springs then. the touring kit drops the car more which is going to absorb less of the bumps. mine is dropped on H&R sport springs with 18" wheels. you can see what it looks like in my sig.

Thanks, that is the ride height I was looking for. What shocks/struts are you using. The H&R Sport Cup kit shows a lower drop than the Touring Kit. The Sport springs show the same ride height as Touring kit. Anyone have experience with Eibach?

eibachs tends to lower the car a little more coz the springs arent as stiff as h&rs....


there's also vogtland springs you might want to consider..


im on h&r sports with bilstein sports...

they may have changed the name, but mine dropped the car a little over an inch. im also using bilstein sports because of the size of my wheels and tires i was concerned about possible rubbing, so i wanted the least amount of travel from the shocks.

Ok going to go with the H&R Sport Springs and run Bilstein HD shocks. I think that is going to be the best setup to run.

as i think i stated before, if you change the amount of rubber on the tires like low profile tires i think that will be the biggest noticable difference in ride comfort. if you want a sport sedan... there will just be that sporty feel to the suspension... :D
