Ok, so you recommend a coilover instead?Depends, do you want to risk the potential of having to do your suspension twice? Upgraded shocks/dampers would be recommended as the OEM shocks were not engineered with the higher spring rate in mind. In the extreme circumstance you could potentially blow a shock prematurely and be back in there replacing it. (labor cost or your time twice) That said many are running "just springs" on stock shocks and they seem to be ok with it. *shrug
I have no input on spring comparison.
Thanks for the advice!If you're thinking about doing a spring over shock set-up, then yeah you might as well consider spending a little more and get yourself a coil-over kit that offers you height adjustment so you can fine tune that ride height where you want it. But realize that a coil-over kit is designed for performance so there will be a sacrifice in comfort. If you're not willing to sacrifice the comfort but want to get rid of the gap then do the spring/shock set-up at a minimum or spend more for a damping adjustable coil-over suspension kit if you want the best of both worlds.
Nice!!Thanks guys. I'll try to have a straight pic when I have the chance. The front is really flush up without any poke. About a mm of space between the strut and wheel. I go over hard dips and turns without any rubbing which is great. Plenty of compliments I receive!
This R-Line does look good with the drop.I know you posted this back in September but I was wondering how you like the ride quality on your h&r springs. I'm thinking about getting those springs but I see that everyone leans towards the eibachs. Thanks in advance.
Really depends on what you like? I have 18" on H&R, the rear is a bit lower then the front but I also prefer it this way. Since I put my new Michelin tires on the ride is beautiful and smooth.I'll be using 18" rims and thinking about H&R (I've always used on all my DD) but now looking at eibach, thinking about getting those as well. which would be better for DD? I just don't have experience with Eibach, so let me know who has it installed. (ride quality)
