I'm going to put springs on my NB. I drive in a spirited manner, I like twisty roads. I dont have any driveways that are too steep. I like low. I dont mind a firm ride.

The springs would go on Bilstein sport shocks (NB).

-Tein S Tech .9F 1.1R

-Eibach 1.3

-Racing Beat 1.0

-H&R Race 1.5

Can someone give me the rates?

Which would you choose given the info I provided above? I am absolutely torn...

I had RB Streets on my 99, and I dont remember them being overly low. I liked the ride, but I also had the Koni's firmed up all the time.

The closer the fenders are to the rubber, the better. I hate wheel well gap.

For me comfort < Handling

I was sponsored by H&R when I had my 2002 Turbo'd SVT Focus. Had the cup kit, and front sway (steeda rear 28.6mm sway) and the car was like riding on rails. Handled AWESOME.

I might try those H&R's yet...just dont see a lot of guys using them.

Is a 1.5" drop ok for Bilsteins, ya think?

I am on eibachs/konis and the ride is great. I've only put about 30 miles on the set-up though before being out of town for a bit.

I've heard eibach are among the lowest on NB's but I still have a 1-2 finger gap. Could be settling a bit still and I've heard the koni's can keep the height up a bit.

Many seem to love Teins but I don't think they go as low.

How about going Ground Control so you can choose your rates and your height?
