hey guys i'm about to buy some springs but i need to know which are better for race. i've heard eibach's spring rate was too soft and doesn't help too much. but i've heard sprint springs are the best so far. they are stiff and provide a great ride. just need to know so i can make the best choice. ride height isn't to important just the best ride. Thanx, dreamin

I know the current Eibach springs are not the best. Then Sprint does not publish their spring rate so no one will ever know how good hey really are until the do so.

If i am not mistaken E0bach is supposed to release a spring specially designed for th Spec. They should be beetre then Eibach's current springs if you want to wait for them to be released (I am not sure when they will be released).

sprint is wack..that is some cheap stuff....stick with eibach, or ground control or progess, or see is H&R makes an application.

eibachs are shit. go with progress. Or spend a little extra and get the G/C coilovers, but stay away from eibachs!

hey I got sprint spring and they are NOT "whack". plus they only cost me 100 bucks plus shipping and it turned out that the place i found them for was only 20 minutes so i didnt have to pay shipping. Havent had a problem yet. My friend got sprint on his talon TSI too and he has no complaints either. a good ride if you ask me. Just cuz its cheap doesnt make it a bad product.

dryboy..........when your factory struts are blowin in 3 more months, you'll agree with us.

over on b15sentra.net the consensus is that they're crap. sorry, but I'm gonna take the word of a lot more members and oldbies than a newbie who just went out and bought the lowest springs he could find.

Maybe your right, but I sincerely hope your not (for my cars sake). I do have a b14 not 15 so I dont know if they are better on mine than on yours but I havent had a problem in 8 months. I'll post back in 3 more and we'll see where I am at. At the time I baught them they were cheap and to this day I have no regrets. I know I am a newb and I'm sure other people may have had a problem with sprint before but I gave it a go. We'll see where I am in 3 months.

Chimmike....GC uses Eibach spring FYI, as forbottoming out with the Prokit(spec-v specific) vs GC's which will bottom out less, and less likely to kill the shocks?

the GCs use higher quality springs than the pro kits are. Also, the GC you can control ride height. Most people with them really like them.

I like the progress, if you're just going for springs, they have better rates than the pro kits, and I think progress is making a better name for themselves in the suspension business.

Where do you get your expierience from? From what I know, the rear spring rates if not done custom aren't good for a B15 cause they are too low. I know Tein is a very well known and respected aftermarket suspension company. What are you thoughts in detail?

springs

sprint is good....if you drive a civic with plenty of suspension travel. i had progress springs when i had a b14. to be honest i rode like shit with stock struts and cut bumpstops(even when the struts were new) but im hearing nuthin but good stuff about them for the b15 so im gonna give them another shot. ive rode in many civics with sprint and they gave a really good ride with some good struts but IMO they are way to low for the sentra

For 50 bucks extra a spring you can have any rates you want with Tein...Tein full coilovers all the way. But, Progress and GC are good for just springs.
