I have been lookin at Neuspeed (green) sport lowering springs and wonder if anyone has em on here. They lower more evenly especially in the front and are a progressive rate spring (like the ITR). I wonder which one would give a smoother ride...

from what ive heard, on most cars the pro-kit gives a more stocklike ride. but the neuspeeds drop it more and give a sportier feel. but another thing to consider is that the neuspeeds will settle more over time than the pro-kit will because of the way they are made. so its up to you based on what you are looking for.

go with the neuspeed i have neuspeed coil-overs which are bilstien struts and race springs and as for now the ride isn't to bad. but i still have stock wheels until next week, which might change everthing.

I was deciding on these two springs for awhile also, i decided to go with neuspeed sports because they will look better, eibach prokit doesn't lower very much only like 1.2 inches, the sports lower you around 1.7 inches which i feel is the best drop if you don't want to be low, just look good! Go with the neuspeed sports they will look better when you get rims also!

Yeah I think i'm gonna get the Neuspeed sports. Is a camber kit required? I won't be needing it for the street as much will I? And if I get rims, they would be 15-or 16s.

neuspeeds don't SAG over time...they remain the same...and they never settle. they come with the drop right outa the box. Eibach pro kits are horrible. stay away. They claim a 1.3 drop and you get a 2 inch drop with bad sagging....

H&R sports and Neuspeed sports springs are both very good options going the spring route. I like KYB agx adj shocks. Koni's I can't trust since it rests all the weight on a little ass C clip. I have seen a few break:(

Hmm, what about RS*R springs? Are they good for ride and even drop and no sagging?
I have had no experience with rsr sorry.

I had sports on my car before I got my Ground Controls and I liked them. They are good springs. I did eat through the inside of my tires though. You might want to look into a camber kit for them. It isn't needed but it will pay for itself in the money you save on tires.

I have them on my Civic (in the sig).
The rear is 1 finger the front is 2.
I plan to have someone cut a coil off the front for the 1 finger gap all around :cool:

I had the same problem on my teg. That is why I swapped them out for GC's. But if you got the sports and koni yellows and put them on the bottom perch I bet it would be close to where you want to be. Or you could look at the neuspeed race springs as well.

I thought about putting the race in the front, but heard that would not be a good mix. Someone said they cut a coil off the front of their pro-kit and it rides fine :confused:

Yeah when I bought my sports about 2 years ago I went with them over the race springs because I was worried about the race being too low. I don't think the look you have is bad at all. If I still had my sports on I would probably just leave them without cutting any off.

I went with them because they use Eibach springs.
