Some more questions: On your rear bar, are you running shorter endlinks than the stock length ones? I ask because modern sells a shorter rear endlink, claiming it's needed if you lower your car. And now that I think of it, same with the front, do you run shorter endlinks up front? I ask because of ...

H&R claims that the sport springs are designed for use in a daily driver....and they're progressive rate. So, I'm assuming they're not much stiffer than stock. Also, they lower about 1.4" in the rear and 1.5" in the front. Eibach's rear bar is 22mm adjustable....can't find how many positions though...

Progress has a 22mm non-adjustable rear, and a 24mm adjustable rear. Is your 22mm adjustable? Who is the manufacturer? my 22mm (Suspension Techniques?) is not adjustable, but i really wish it was. If I found a 19mm adj, I’d get that in a heart beat. I know people on the 24mm adj rear and its livabl...

They don't advertise their spring rates. I even called them to ask. They stated that they do not provide rates on purpose because there is no common standard that everyone uses to measure this rate....so comparisons by rate alone are totally inaccurate. So maybe I should go back to saving my money ...

what spring rates are the H&R? IMO disregard the front bar completely... The hotchkis and MP set both are rear bar adjustable. which is awesome. Personally i like the MP rear bar sizing better and the end links are some neat hiem jobbers. soft springs and huge sway bars is actually rather sucky for ...

I'd go 22mm rear and see how it feels, you can always beef up the front with a cheap pt bar if needed. THIS^^^ on stockish spring rates (eibach pro) i finally settled on 24mm front and 22mm rear. If the H&R springs are stiffer than 150 in the front i'd do that over the pro's. If you sticking with t...

The 60mm throttle body is kind of gamble it seems. Some NGC cars do fine, some throw TPS codes. if it hasnt been seriously investigated, those with correlation issues should really check the TPS voltage operation. The differences could be as much manufacture issues (known) as anything else. I'd say...
