SR Performance

It's pretty clear that americanmuscle.com like SR Performance parts. Is there a reason for that? And why are they so cheap? The allure of money-saving performance makes sense. But do their parts stack up against companies like K&N and Eibach?

I installed SR performance lowering springs on my car after a Black Friday sale. Coming from stock I noticed very good quality for $99 when I opened the box. Install was easy (did it myself) and I noticed the exact drop that they advertise. I then drove it out to get a feel. I noticed a stiffer ride with very good control without letting them sit. After they are in place I am more than happy with them. Then I drive a buddy's 2006 v6 basically the same car as mine with Eibach springs. And it was a nice ride but I could not find a difference. They were about the same pride but they were more expensive. It may be the fact that with K&N you are mostly paying for the name. I am not sure why SR performance is so cheap maybe they are trying to get their name out? Because after testing there springs, the quality is just the same.

SR Performance has definitely stepped up their game and added a ton of items that people were after. SR Performance has focused a lot on Suspension, with quality and performance as the main goal. The Springs are progressive rate, the bushings are all polyurethane and the components are made of thick material and quality welds. Not only are they the best price around but the quality competes with brands that are much more expensive!

A lot of their stuff is made in the US and some of it is made over seas. We run SR Performance suspension parts on all of our Project cars and have had great results. We're taking these cars to the track multiple times a month and really putting these parts to the test. I can say with confidence that they've definitely held up great and shown awesome results!

I think you'll be really happy with the quality and results you get from anything you purchase from SR. Definitely let me know if you have any questions or need some information on a specific product. I have personal experience with all of their products!

Thank you for your feedback! I'm glad to hear you're really enjoying your SR Performance lowering springs. They were a real steal on Black Friday!

Let me know if you ever have any questions or need some assistance.

Thanks Dan, that's really good information! Is SR connected to AM somehow?

I actually have been wondering who Sr performance is. I have the springs that still need to be installed. I'm planning to get sway bars from them too

Awesome! You'll love those lowering springs. They'll lower your car a good amount and deliver great ride quality! You'll notice big gains in the handling category.

Let me know if you have any questions about the sway bars or need some assistance there! I'd be happy to help.

I've heard a LOT of negative stuff about the SR CAI and espeically the SR CC plates. For the CAI... if you live in an area where you won't see a lot of rain or moisture or even if you just spray it to keep it from corroding it'll probably be just fine and for the money its hard to argue. With CC plates... its not just you that can potentially get into trouble if one fails or goes out on you while you are driving. I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend going with a known high quality brand like Max Motorsports (which AM also sells) or Steeda. The MM plates I have experience with for many years, are on my current car and are a huge upgrade from stock and about as nice a piece as you could want.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm going to get this sent over to the guys at SR Performance right away. They'll investigate these products and make sure if there is any issues that they're squared away, quickly!

After looking into our system, I don't see many returns at all for the SR Performance CAI and CC Plates. However, we'll pull a few from inventory and see if there's any obviously issues. I have personal experience with majority of the SR line of products and have installed some on my 2011 GT. I've had great success at the track with the upper and lower control arms. They perform well at the track and are a huge improvement over stock!

They do have some good products. I had a CAI from SR back on my old V6. And it did give a cool hissing sound, and i saw some mild mpg gains with it as well. I did however have a bear of a time getting some of the rubber connectors to fit. It was like they were way too tight. i get that they need to be air tight, but man it was a pain. Also, for the most part that car was garaged in bad weather. rain sleet and snow. And still within a year, it was extremely corroded. Now, for my needs i didn't really care much. It was an old, beat up v6. Not really a show car. I was just amazed at how badly some of the rust got, so fast.
Also, like i said the parts SR has are good for the price. I recently bought some springs and CC plates to try out, because they were in an unbeatable price range. I figured they would work to lower the car for the time being until i can save up for a more permanent set up.

This is the first I'm hearing of the SR Intakes rusting and corroding. I'll make sure we check the finish on this and see if something needs to be done. There's a chance that you just got a defective intake and if that's the case I have no problem replacing it for you. There's a lot of people out there running SR intakes without any issues at all!

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I'll make sure this is addressed right away!

The SR intakes corroding is all over the place on multiple forums as are the issues with the CC plates. As I said for something as important as CC plates, go with MM for only a little more $$.
