    They are fairly decent springs and designed with comfort in mind. They are no tien or jic but by far better than APC.

    They are about the same quaility as H&R, or Eibach. Also consider Ground Control coilovers. You can get them for 300 in any spring rate you want.

    Progress is really good stuff. I wouldn't exactly call them a "lower priced alternative" or that "Eibachs are better springs"... some of the best cars out there run Progress suspension. It's high quality equipment.

    hmm. ok. nevermind then. when i was shopping for springs, the progress ones were quoted cheaper than the eibachs so i assumed they were cheaper springs.

    Price isn't always an accurate indicator of quality.

    But......... I have a piece of coil wound foil to sell you- 4 foil coils for $5000. You can adjust the ride height with these foil springs by just pushing down on your car! Want to buy a set? I can make as many as you want.

    Progress is good stuff, my boy has a 5th gen with progress springs, tokico shocks and progress comp sway bars. It's a good ride.

    Progress got their RSX type S to pull something like .97 g's on a skidpad with out touching the dampers. Good stuff IMO.
