Well what struts are you on? I would never ever just put springs on oem struts.

Well..... you can, just up to a certain threshold.


Depends on the stiffness of the spring's rate, and the dampening stiffness, and technology of the shocks.

There are light springs that only stiffen a little bit, so they will be able to be used with oem shocks in GOOD CONDITION. Not like 150k+ used shocks lol.

Now if you are going dramatically stiffer, then yes I would go ahead and change out both at the same time so they will work symmetrically better with each other with the right stiffness setting of what you are going to use your car for.


Oh and AWDKid, what about koni inserts and ground controls? They do use oem shocks right?

...
But just the part that holds it in place with the chassis haha :rolleyes4

you gotta start this thread over I think

you asked about what springs people have, and the rates and the drops...but now you already bought springs?


http://z1auto.com/prodmore.asp?model=legacy&cat=handling&prodid=54 for Tein springs

what exactly did you buy, what is the part #? Did you buy them new or used? If used, the seller should be able to tell you what they were/are. Did you install them yet? Are you not happy with them? If not, why (in detail)?
