OK, I could have sworn there was a thread like this already but I can't find it...

So anyways, just like the title says. Post up a picture (or several) of your car and tell us what strut/spring or coilover setup you are using, and describe the ride a little.


I have stock struts and 1st gen ACR springs. The car is a little bouncy but rides pretty close to stock.

There is a coil-over thread like this, but eh.

That is a good idea Manny. This thread should be for those folks who want to see non-coil over set ups. Ignore my pretty pictures Laughing

My setup is tokico hp blue struts with k-sport lowering springs. Springs give a 1.5" drop. This setup works very well, and provides a stiffer suspension that doesnt make you feel all the bumps. Even though its lowered i never bottom out on anything which is great for those of you that DD your cars like me. New this setup will run ~430$

Nope. I actually meant one called "show us your suspension setups" that was for everybody, not just coilovers.

I really like the way he sits Smile. If I ever got coilovers I wouldn't go much lower with him. I added rear spacers at the end of the fall with extended wheel studs that made the rear wheels sit more "flush" with the quarter panel like the fronts are. No hellaflush here!!!

If it's megan, then it's probably 2.0 front and 1.9 rear.

just look at my sig. that's megan coilovers with hotchkis sways. prothane bushings all the way around. my big issue at the moment is that i can't drop my rear any more cause one of the rears is locked up somehow. i've done everything short of heat (bad idea, and will not do) to break it loose
