Re: Suspension kit

springs will all weight just about the same. I wouldnt look at a spring based on its weight as thats a really important component. Many springs are made by the likes of Eibach anyway.. I think at one time all of the springs steeda sold were actually produced by eibach.

Do you want handling, straight line performance, or just looks?

Re: Suspension kit

For straight line you want softer back stiffer front to help with weight transfer (shocks/struts as well)

if weight is what you want to drop then rotating mass is the FIRST place to look (other than cheap/free places). Such as rotors (2 piece), drive shaft (get rid of tons of weight here), and rims.
