Halfway done in replacing springs on all 4 corners. Took a couple hours to replace rear coils today. The rear dropped about an inch from stock after a quick drive. KHFL-150 front and KHRL-152 rear.

Finished up yesterday. Install was pretty easy. Car drives less harsh but still pretty firm. Front has dropped .5 inch in front and 1 inch in the rear with limited driving. It drives pretty straight but I'll give it another day or so to see what if it settles then get an alignment.

Glad I decided to get the alignment. It was way out after the install. Car seemed to drive fine- go figure.

What was the part number for the springs front and rear? I can figure out where to find them from that I'm sure. Just researching options.

Thanks,
Jim

The height looks excellent and almost the perfect stance as it should come form the factory. While the Eibachs and the H&R (on my car) look lowered, this looks OEM.
