K member

About to order a upr k member which one do I need 14" 175lb springs or 12" 200lb springs.. I shouldn't have a problem clearing my 9.5" rims with coil overs ? The plan is to go with the on3 kit this winter .

You will not be disappointed in the kit power wise!!!! Watched a non pi motor yesterday pump out almost 440hp on 9.5 psi. Tuner was quickly backing some boost off to get it back around 400 at the wheels. That was a 100% stock car other than some exhaust

I'd go with the 200lb springs, too soft and it can feel a bit loose on the street. To give you an idea, i run 375lb up front, but its more of a handling set up.

Alright I'll go with the heavy spring. The 14" or 12" won't make a difference?

I've heard that running coil overs on the street sucks ?

I have upr coilovers with the 12 inch 250 lb springs and the ride quality is similar if not identical to my previous h&r springs.

It depends on a lot of factors.... Spring rates, how low you go, whether or not you hit the bumpstops like I do.
