OK, so I've finally decided to install my neuspeed race springs. i've had these springs sitting on my bedroom floor for almost a year now for the simple reason that i can't find a good deal on the rims that i want :( so i decided to just install everything to at least have my car lowered. with that said here is my question:

will i run into problems if i install the neuspeed race springs with koni yellows on my stock rims and tires? can someone tell me if there are any performance cons to doing this?

oh and if it makes any difference in the responce, i also have the rear ingall camber kit and the front ingall ball joint that allows for -1.5 to +1.5 adjustment

thanks in advance :)

o i wont i think i might do it 1 perch higher than stock. what is a good setting to leave it on for the dampening? i dont want it stiff and firm... i want it close to stock but a little bit firmer. How is it all the way on the soft side? or maybe between middle and soft?

im on HFP... gonna sell that when i get the supercup kit in :) should be getting everything in by next week if all goes well:) hehe

hrmm sorry i was going to say dudette, didnt know if it might be sexist.

honestly you are fine with koni yellows and any spring you go with.

pm me or aim me with any questions you have on suspension stuff. ive got tons of experience to help you out with.

no, the overall wheel diameter is the same isnt it? :p

the speedo is only thrown off when you get a different wheel size and dont compensate by choosing different sized tires to fall inside the stock overall wheel diameter.

the ride "harshness" is mostly a function of spring rate. the neuspeed race has a higher spring rate than the neuspeed sport, thus it will feel more "harsh."

the bounciness can be controlled by adjusting the damping force on the koni yellows. You can adjust it in such a way that you have some bounce (more comfort, less handling), or less bounce (less comfort, more handling).
