EBay springs

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...d=360588625605

Anybody have experience with these springs? I don't want to cut and these are cheap. I am only wanting them for looks, and a decent ride quality because its my dd.

Two people on here have them and say the ride is good a little bouncy but i mean so what? lol and your shocks and struts will be fine. If your looking for looks and not so much performance as it would be buying expensive ones then get them. I bought mine off eBay to and I'm installing them Thursday ill let you know how they ride

So heres my problem. I need to know which springs to get. Either the ones i posted on the original post or the SR ones from AM. Now I dont want to have to replace shocks, struts or add anything else but lower it as much as I can with just buying springs and an alignment. I have 120xxx miles with 18x9 275/35 in front and 18x10 285/35 in back.

If you have stock struts and shocks with 120k, then its really not good to lower it. The right way, and safest with high mileage shocks it to replace them when you do the springs. If you cant afford to then wait until you can. It also doesnt make sense to pull it apart twice. Not to mention worn shocks will cause excessive uneven wear on your tires.

Even some oe replacements will be much better than nothing. Check rockauto.com and you can get em cheap.

If your trying to save some money, a set of the Dropzones at 1.5" would be alright. Although a lot say they didn't do cc plates on their 1.5" or greater drop, I have seen first hand a dozen times how this wears the tires unevenly. At the very least buy some camber bolts, which are cheap, and when you have the alignment done they can install and use those much cheaper than cc plates. For a DD you really want as close to 0 camber as you can get. No point in buying tires more often than you need to, even more so if your already on a budget.

Low and slow! The roads here make it unwise for me to go lower than I already am. Hell when I still had my cats in, I would drag em on speed bumps all the time, especially when I have the wife and kids in the car and we are all fairly small.

i like the sr's. not low enough for me though. but they give a nice stance. pretty happy with my dropzones for now till i afford coilovers. their cheaper price than sr's and the drop is lower

With out extras plan on 1.5. Lower and you really should it correctly. Especially with 18x10" wheels and 1" spacers....

Why the spacer on a 10 wheel if you dont mind me asking? Do you have pictures you can post?.

I think they stick out too far. It looks like it would cause issues with steep inclines, especially at an angle. Do you run into it catching the fenders at all?

If you end up lowering it you might have rubbing problems.
