    BMR Springs

    I was wondering if these spring will close up the gap enough in the wheel well enough or not? I dont want it slammed but i do want a noticable drop. I have the springs already and i also have the konis sitting in my room. If any one with these springs could chime in that would be great. And pics if possible.

    No, I've heard of the hose mod but not really sure how or why to do it.

    Shocks are cheapo KYB AGX.

    Oh and FYI. Stock Y-pipe is just under 4" off the ground at lowest point.

    I have BMRs with Konis in the rear and KYBs in the front. Perfect for that nonslammed look yet noticeable drop.

    I think the drop is 1.25" (not sure).

    BMR spring,Strano Bars
    G2 adj phr ,adj lca , adj up/low A-arms ,
    Koni SA around
    Poly bushings.

    I actually have no problems and enjoy my ride quality. I obviously cannot compare with the Koni's since I've never had em, but do feel I got a good deal on a good shock.

    The rear seemed to squeek and couldn't get those bolts snugged right to stop it, so I replaced the rear top shock bolt back to the stocks and haven't had a problem with sounds since. At first I was rubbing the shit out of my fenders (not rolled) with 11" rear tires. Added bmr relocation brackets and haven't hit those again since.

    Take your time to dial in the stiffness settings and I think its an enjoyable ride.
