    Megan Racing Lowering Springs

    Anyone have any experience with them? Megan Racing

    Looks like they offer a pretty aggressive drop. Only about a 15% increase in spring rate for the front over stock. It's a 46% increase in spring rate for the rear though.

    A 2 1/2" lowering spring only is for show cars that get parked and are for looks. It would never work in a million years on a stock shock since you're only leaving like 2" of compressed shock travel. Only takes a few times of bottoming a shock out to destroy it so go figure that the springs ebay retail is $100 or so. It makes me wonder if if there's monkeys sitting in cubicles making engineering decisions for these manufactures.

    man the rear tires would be grinding out the fenders in no time. You can't have that much drop without having ROCK HARD springs. Get Tein S or H techs if you just want to lower the car a bit.

    I wouldn't expect to be able to use these springs on a stock shock/strut. I was more or less curious to see if someone has found a good setup utilizing these springs. I'm guessing not though as I have never heard of or seen anyone using these springs in the few years that I have been around these cars.

    I have Megan springs on my dsm and really like them. That is with kyb gas adjustable shocks and struts though. Also, Megan springs for a dsm don't lower the car as far.

    I will most likely be going with s techs as any of the reasonably priced coilovers seem to be crap.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    There are good cars that get you from point A to point B, and then there are great cars, that get you into trouble.

    other than me needing rear adjustable camber arms (stock are maxed) they are great!! i am thoroughly happy with them in every aspect. no squeaky mice in the back or front, no rubbing, however i can see it being possible with like a 24 offset and 275s lol. ride is nice and comfortable, i lost my ecs but i didnt care for it anyway. so im guessing its in sport mode now, and even then its quite enjoyable. great value. i have not a single bad thing to say. if you want before shots let me know!
