im thinking about dumping my pro-kits for the tein springs....i hate the front fender well gap:p i checked Options auto salon and theyre selling for a pretty decent price i beleive for 165 a set+tax/shipping whatever heres the addy for the page http://www.optauto.com/webstore/pro...ariation=&aitem=3&mitem=19&back=yes&dept=1438
Ah man I thought when I found them for $180--it was a good price. If I were U I would def. get them Arsenal....esp. since Im too scared to be the first to do it.. ;)

No but seriously that is a good price--I just might have to do it cuz my suspension right now is not only bottoming out but its completly throwing my alignment off....No matter what I try or where I go the car has not been aligned right since I put these Arospeed crap coilovers on--:mad:

I'm down to get a set, I have the GC coilovers and the collar setup is getting on my nerves, so I'm gonna ditch the collars and springs. I'm going with the Tein's but the 1.2 in the rear puzzles me, I don't wanna look like I'm hunting for racoons.

Hey JT--wut do U mean the collar set up??? Whats the problem with it???

ANd yeah the 1.2 in the rear bothers me too but I talked to this guy and this is what he said:

Tein has been around for awhile and they make good quality suspensions. They are way better than most lowering springs. That said, I like the way it looks in my friend's car. It has this mean stance since the front spring is lower than the back. It doesn't have this gap that you see on most lowered nissans. I love the ride quality. Just to let you know, this is the soft spring with stock struts. That's what my friend want for his suspension. He's not into racing or anything; just looks.
For a weekend warior, I'll sugest hard spring and agx adjustables. For the streets, I put the agx on #2 front, #3 or 4 for the rear. Maxed out for the track. This is the set-up that I have on my skyline when I was in Japan. It's low but it does not bottom out on me. Of course, you have to cut the bump stop just like any other lowered suspension.
Now for the medium springs, I still have to install it to my friend's G20 and find out exactly how the ride is. This is just my opinion; take it with a grain of salt. I hope this will help.

The GC coilover threads are not on the actual strut/shock like most coilover setups. They actually use a threaded collar that goes over the strut/shock that the adjustable ring goes on. Problem #1 the collar on the back has space between the shock, therefore making tht clunking noise that all GC owners complain about, even after sealing it up, you get noise still on the big bumps. Problem #2 since it is a collar, it is shorter and so is the spring. The rear spring is about half the size of a regular spring, therefore causing crazy bottoming, you have to raise it up to almost stock to not bottom on that shit. Needles to say, The AGX's are amazing on handling, so I am going with regular springs, and using the GC's for shows only. And thru all my searching, Tein is in the top 2 so far. But Eibach doesn't go low enough. So Tein it is!!!

Well Damn U just killed my whold Ground Control mind set. I have read about the noise and what not but I havent read abou the bottoming out like this.....Yo I have so many problems wit the POS Arospeed Coils I have now-Ill be damned if I spend 3 and still have problems...

Maybe I should just take the risk and go with the Teins--hey how soon are U planning to get-maybe we can get em together and get a little deal....

What does it mean if a set of springs are progressive?
It means the spring rate gets stiffer as the spring is compressed more, like while in a corner. This is generally not bad for street springs since the ride is relatively soft while cruising around and as you start driving more performance oriented, the ride gets stiffer to compensate in a sense. Remember that for racing linear rate springs are better since it's much easier to predict how the car is going to behave in any given turn, since the spring rate isn't changing while in the middle of a corner.
