Thanks to Kurt for the suspension.
Progress Springs w/ KYB GR2's

Sits to low for me, so hopefully my friend wants to trade me his Pro-kit for them soon. They ride like stock though, which is amazing enough.

After:

Looks great.
But my GR-2's didn't last long after I put them on Tein Springs.
You should look into getting some AGX's.

I like the look! Have you had any camber issues with them yet?
Only have had them on for a few days. Then my slave decided to go out on me. :mad:

I will be getting a rear camber kit soon, and unfortunatly I think I may need a front also.

I agree I had my spring strut set-up with dropzone springs and GR-2's..

I personaly think the GR-2's are as basic as the KYB's that came from the factory on our cars

Wow thats a really good drop, how is the ride though?
Rides better than on my stock springs/shocks. I'm not sure if it was because of the old age/milage on them, but the car doesn't bounce over any bumps or anything. I could not want them to be any smoother.

Thats awesome, I'm trying to figure out the best spring/shock combo for my gsx. Those have the exact drop I want, and if were thinking the same thing then it looks like I'll be going with those springs. I wonder how much better tokicos or agx would feel... hmm lol.

It's not the springs that make it low in the front it's the shock bodies. The KYB AGXs I had before the GR2s didn't do that.

Keep the springs they are awesome, change out the shocks if you're that worried or do what I said in the PM like I had, it will even out.

I will be adjusting them soon. I think then I will be going with some better struts in spring.

Oh no doubt, just don't trade the springs they are the best riding springs I've ever felt.

I got them originally from Extreme Motorsports. They no longer have them listed on the site you'll have to find a progress dealer.

How does the shock determine ride height? It's only there for dampening. The spring is what determines your cars ride height.

If the body of the shock is shorter than another, you can only clamp it so far down the body. If the other shock has a longer body, you can clamp it furthur down, causing the spring to compress less, creating a smaller drop.

Sorry. Failed to read about the shorter shock body. Thought we were comparing shock/struts of the same length.
