hey i was wondering if anyone has a pic of their car with either of the two springs on them. i have a full c-west kit and i want a drop that i can put on my car without having to worry about speed bumps since my campus is full of them :pissed:

any pics or comments would be helpful!

I'd go s-techs for sure. H-tech's look nice but isnt that much different from stock IMO.

Heres a couple pics of my s-techs.


^^^hard to see actual top of tires b/c of shadow^^^

Hey nice looking car! Are those 18's, or 19's?

I'm changing around my suspension to a nice spring/shock combo with a more conservative drop. Looking to improve ride quality as well. I'm pretty sure I want to go with tein s-tech's at this point tho... how's the ride?

EDIT, looked at ur sig, lol. I think I would be good with my 19's and some s-tech's with my tokiko illumina's. :cool:

Did you replace your factory shocks?

Nope, not yet. The ride is better than I ever imagined so far. The shocks are still fairly new though. It is a lot lower and is a decent amount tighter around turns, but is surprisingly stock-like in ride quality still. Good luck with your decision.

Hey man, if it wouldn't be too much trouble do you think you could pm me once you get them installed? I would like to know how it turns out, and would love to see some pics. I'm pretty sure i'm going to go with s-tech's, but would love to hear from someone that is full cwest with these springs, my car is too low right now!

that looks sweet ^^^

Now, paint the stock wheels black. I have a set of black stockers like that and they look amazing.
