Show off your suspension setup

Want to show off you latest pictures that you took of your Neon or want to share a unique picture you found on the internet. Post them all here to share. Off-Topic Pictures (non-2GN related) should be placed in the Off-Topic Media board.

Show off your suspension setup

Post by TheRandom1 » Thu Feb 24, 2011 9:00 am

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.

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 :lol:

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 :). 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.

Thank ya, thought it might have been something different because everyone elses ride with megas has less of a raked stance (everyones elses is more or less on an even slope). :thumbup:

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
