Thanks for the info! In your experience, was the ride quality better, worse, or just different with the lowering springs only? More bouncy?hmm i wouldnt strictly say no go, i had springs on my car for over a year and didnt find anything TOO bad, just had to slow down on speedbumps etc which is obvious
Any body have any pics of a spring kit on there car. Would like to see it before i buy it.
Nice thing with coil-overs (most anyways) is that you can adjust how firm/ soft they are and the ride height. So if you get tired of it being slammed you can just raise the car back up.
Just because I can't resist a plug: Only coil-overs we sell for the NF are K Sport RR.
Calgary, did you check out the link that I put in my earlier post? I have a set of Eibach lowering springs on my Sonata and though it did improve the handling and steering, it decreased the smoothness of the ride, plus as I stated, lowering springs wear out your shocks and struts sooner, so even though coilovers are more expensive initially, they are worth it because they will save you over having to replace your shocks and struts on an ongoing basis plus keep your ride the same. It's like the old plumbing saying, "pay me now (for a job done well), or pay me later (for having to fix a cheap job that was done)".Can someone expand that last posting a little? I have a 06 NF 3.3 that I purchased new and it is time for the suspension to be serviced. I have tracked down the HR/Eibach springs but have not had any luck as to what are better "sporty" springs/struts. Coil-overs seem like a bit of over kill as I just wish to have the car handle better since I have to replace this stuff.
At the same time can anyone comment about rotors and pads? I am looking at replacing the stock stuff with stoptech gear but only on the recomendation of a local shop as the cost vs dealership work seems stunningly better.
Sorry for the newb questions, I'm just a mid 30's dad who wants to recall his youth
I have replaced the filters to K&N years back, stunning stereo, fully synth fluids since day one but this stuff is beyone me.
