    Yes they will, but the s-techs are a bad choise for performance. They have very low spring rates, like 200/150, which is almost stock. I hear they are bouncy. You should consider ground control coilovers or Eibach sport-lines.

    Yeah they aren't that stiff, but they're still stiffer than stock, and they're a good match for the Tokico Blues. If he just wants to lower the car and still have a pretty good ride with a bit of extra stiffness for cornering, they're a good choice.

    i didnt know that they had that low of a spring rate :(

    i wanted to get performance out of it but still be able to have a good daily driver...im young so a rough ride doesnt really bother me.

    thanks for the input!! :)

    They do list all the spring rates on their site- check there to get the REAL information before you make a decision.

    Springs are bouncy because they're being run on shocks that can't damp the motions of the spring. You must be on blown stock shocks- it doesn't take very much damping to control a car with spring rates like the S.Tech.

    You've got the shocks set too stiff for your springs then.

    ive got s-techs and blues on my 91 hatch and i like them
    the roads around here are shitty so not being uber stiff is nice, but it is still a big improvement over stock

    Tanabe GF210's and KYB AGX's would be my choice.
