h&r race springs?

looking at these because i need some major stiffness in the suspension for the drifting i've been doing. been getting too much slouch lately.


but are they too stiff for daily driving? about 750-850lbs front, 260-280 rear

you can handle them dont be a wuss. j/k ive heard nothing but good about thsese springs, but with these springs i would reccomend you change the shocks and struts because they have a very high spring rate your shocks and struts will be gone fast. with my prokit it only took about 4 months. some tokico illuminas might do the trick so that you can adjust them for racing and daily driving.

They wont be that bad, if you want the best coil overs would be another way to go. H&R however are the best out there in regular coils for stagns (from what ive seen) Just remember to pick up mm's cc plates the 4 bolt design with em, else those tires are gonna get ate though asap.

They would really make you stang handle a lot better. What other suspension mods do you have done. Later on you will need a Full-length subframe connector, struts and shocks etc.

i'm holding off on sub connectors because it really messes with my autox classidication.

i've done nothing to the suspension except rear spacers to widen the stance

Get some struts and shocks that way you can match you spring rate. And get some subframe connectors if you don't have them all ready.

regardless of class, id get some subframe connectors on, because ive seen guys who have set up their suspension nice and stiff, theyd pitch the car sideways, and sometimes hook hard going sideways, and some damage

one buddy cracked his windsheld from having a flexable chassis, some guys doors wont close right, crap like that
