    I want it to be a noticeable drop (not slammed) and be able to use them with my stock struts.... I've been suggested the Prodrives or Epic springs... I don't know though...

    epic are to new to have any failures wait on those bad boys but they look promising. every company makes revisions based on feedback and they havent been around too long.

    See and I was set on H Techs until I started talking to peeps... saying that the ride quality is bad bla bla bla... but I can't find another springs that drops as much as the H Tech with a good drive quality, you know?

    well Id suggest trying to find a few peeps with each type of spring and taking a ride.

    But if you have the money I will always suggest a set of coilovers.. I <3 my Flexes.

    I went on a mini ride too... it seemed a tab bit bumpy, but Tony said the road was just really bad right there... i'll have to jump into it for a little bit longer and see! I really really really love where the Tein H Tech puts the car... there isn't another spring that drops like that one does... not slammed, but not hardly noticeable...

    Ahh if I had the money... it'll just be springs for now though

    Jen, Most people who get in my car complain its a little bumpy but when you're the driver it doesn't feel so, I guess i like feeling more intouch with the road but then again i have my flexes set slightly stiffer.

    i liked hawks. it felt solid but not rough. lou most people just repeat what they hear and people on nasty sock just talk ****. i would find out for your self what YOU like not what they are trying to make you like. a good chunk of the springs are made by eibach anyways.
