View Full Version : springs?

05-26-2002, 08:33 PM
I was planning on buying einbach springs to lower my car. I was wondering if I should do that or try another company or even coilovers. I can buy the springs and get them installed for around $350(usd). Is there a better deal or a differnt company I can buy from. The cheaper, the better.

H&R makes a cup kit which is cheap compared to coilovers and they lower your car more.

Bilstein also sells coilovers probably one of the best, but expensive.

I hope your planning on upgrading your shocks as well, cuz stock shocks will just break with lowering springs.

Don't forget your camber adjuster kit

ya don't want the /------\ look!

Yea, but you dont need it if your car isnt 'slammed'

How much did the Bilstein shocks and einbach springs cost you including install?

I dont know if i can afford both shocks and springs. I am graduating, so I hope I get some money for that and then I start a job making 11 bucks and hour. I hope I make enough because I want exhaust, lowered, and short shifter by the end of the summer.

One more thing, where can I find headers for the m42 engine that are street legal in California. Will I get noticable performance gain?

Damn, who are you working for to make 11 bucks an hour?

I am working for the county as a student engineer. Have you ever heard of the computer program AutoCAD? It is a design program, for example, I am going to be making manholes and drainage pipes on the computer. It is a very powerful program. I made some rims on there that were 17X8. It is also good to design letters and stuff.
