Great thread, esp w pics

Ahhhh ... in real life sportlines look waaaaaaay lower, and the Megan pic that guy HAS to be running wheels off a Honda, those gotta be 205/40

I believe there is a "2nd Gen" Eibach Sportline with a 222 front spring, and there is a difference in part #'s. Does anyone else remember this?

One of these can be added to the list. Mine are the first pics I've seen of Swift springs. This is on stock wheels and tires. Feel free to delete this post afterwards.

why do the ksports have stiffer front springs that induce understeer as oppose to stiffer rears to reduce understeer.

who knows, its Ksports way of making them, almost all of their spings i have looked at got stiffer fronts.

Guess they preffered having understeer than oversteer...

picked up set of 2002 oem spec-v springs today, they're about 1-1.5inches shorter than the 2002 oem gxe springs i had on the car.

anyone else notice this or know anything about this?
