    Lowering Springs

    Has anyone heard of or used the Megan Racing lowering springs? There seems to be several listings on ebay. i looked up the company and this is the link for the springs; http://www.meganracing.com/products/...=1115&catid=47

    I know there are probably better springs out there, I just had never heard any good or bad or mention of these springs.

    I haven't heard any negative postings about Megan Racing.

    Not to my knowledge. When I was restoring my last car, I used tuner magazines for research and some of the magazines I read advertised MR. Hey...be different.

    Did you need an alignment? i've been considering springs, do you have a pic of how your car sits with the 1.2" drop?
    thanks

    Whenever you replace springs/shocks/struts it is advised to get your car aligned.

    Rear spring sag is very bad on our cars...the 1.2" drop springs actually raised the rear of the car 3/4"

    Your car's body kit looks cool. Does anyone know anything about the SLP springs on lethalperformance.com site? I think they are 1.2 or 1.5, can't remember. My car hasn't really begain to sag in the rear, it only has 12,000+/- miles on it, would new shocks and struts be a wise idea if I do lower it? What are the diameter of the eibachs? Do they provide a firmer ride as well as lower the car? thanks for the pic, I may go with the eibachs.

    I had Eibachs on my previous car. Didn't take the bumps hard at all...even with the SensaTracs up front and KYBs in the rear. Carved turns tho.

    Thanks guys!
    I did the Eibachs at the same time I replaced all the bushings...it gave the car a "good" stiffer ride, but nowhere brutal like some springs I've had that bounce you all over the place.

    If your curious, front and rear should be the same measurement from the center of the wheel strait up to the wheel well lip.
