Finally Pulling The Trigger!

Finally pulling the trigger on buying some springs. Going to go with the H&R Super Sports. Going to pick them up through AM with the discount code.

Anyone have any tips or information I might want to know? If anyone knows any place I could get them even cheaper, please let me know haha! Other than that, I can't wait!

Is your car a daily driver? They do set your car low and you can bottom out on some road conditons especially if you have long tube headers. I had them and swapped out to ford racing c springs to set between the two. They (H&R) are probably one of the best tho.

Yeah it is a daily driver. How bad is for bottoming out?

I have h&r super sports on my daily with stock isos in and it's fine you just have to know how to be cautions of big dips and bumps. It's a great stance!!

Depends where you live. Stay away from speed bumps, slanted driveways and bad roads.
If you must go slow and at an angle. You'll still scrap some depending how low you are. I scrap my chin occasionally and im very alert of my surroundings

Sounds like what I am expecting, the stance I've seen from these looks great! Can't wait, thanks guys!

I have H&R SS and I never bottom out unless its a really steep grade.
I've scraped all of 6 or 7 times in the 2 years I've had them.

I have Eibach sport lines which lower about the same and I scrape my exhaust on speed bumps...however my exhaust needs fixed correctly. Be cautious when you have passengers as well....things you don't normally scrape on can scrape when you have added weight in the car.

H&R Super Sports are amazing springs...probably one of the best progressive sets out there short of coil overs. You're gonna love them. AM is pretty competitive as far as pricing, with the discount you're getting a good deal.

I have them with the upper/lower isos out in the front and the uppers out in the rear. The b*tch is low. Ridiculously cut coils or bags would be the only way for me to go lower.

There are some driveways and speed bumps I can't make it into or over. But the stance and handling is well worth it. Keep in mind my car isn't a dd...it sees more garage time than anything so the inconvenience doesn't matter to me.

For a dd the springs will be fine...just leave the isos in. You'll see ~1.5-1.7" in the front and 1.6-1.8" in the rear. Perfect stance, yet still reasonable for commuting to work.
As said you'll still have to be aware of steep inclines, speed bumps, and parking barriers. If you have a chin spoiler there's a chance you will no longer clear the barrier with the SS's.

Not sure how many miles your car has or what condition the shocks/struts are in but you might want to upgrade since you're replacing springs. CC plates wouldn't hurt either but camber bolts will suffice as well as a solid alignment after the springs settle.
Either way you'll love the stance after...definitely post pics!
