    what shock are you going to match with those? The Nuespeed race spring is a pretty stiff, low spring, and needs a good damner. Stock will not do, as well as many entry level performance shocks.

    im gonna stick with stockers for now, as i had to borrow the $$$ to buy these.

    plus my clutch was supposed to have six months left on it 14 months ago, soo that is the next thing, and i need a new cam seal for one of my cams, and will probablly need a new battery within the next 6mo. so this is the last mod for a while, with the exception of the clutch. im gonna try and pick up an entry level Exedy clutch, seen them on E-Bay for $180 :D

    after that gets don its a shitty maaco paint job and then.......fuck i got to save for the Code "D" fund(still cant decide 240 or AE86). GRRRR ......I HATE MONEY

    yep. they dont actually tell you its eibach, but here is a quote direct from their website:

    "Made in Germany by ISO 9002 certified spring-winding specialists. "

    in one of their ads it says these german specialists have been making performance springs for over 50 years. that has to be eibach.

    They're pretty haggard, but they still perform. My girlfriend got Tanabe springs for Xmas so she asked me if i could sell these ones to anyone. The Tanabes are a little better than those Neuspeeds, but it's big imrovement for Scott over those heated stockers. I hooked him up for $40 because they are old, used springs and he's a HondaSwap homey. Good luck, bro :D

    you are going to hate driving with a lowered car and stock dampers in about 30 days. Lowering springs + stock shocks = blown shocks. Blown shocks = misery for you and anyone in car.

    been on the heated stockers for about 8mo now no problems, the neuspeed springs should only lower it about 1/2 to 1 inch.

    My neuspeed race springs have been on my car for a well over a year. They aren't blown. They ride somewhat fine for being stock struts, the usual stiffness, and the lack of response you get stock though.

    Maybe your thinking about coil overs and when people drop their car 4.5inches, that's when the struts blow.

    Hmmm.... I dunno, my g/f's car was fucking slammed on 16's with those springs. Your car is gonna be even lower on those 14's you have. :lol:

    They're pretty stiff, too, and with your 14 y.o. shocks, you could risk blowing them. I, however, don't think it's that big a deal. I has S2 coilovers on my stock VX shocks for six months and only blew one. :)
