Springs for non-bilstein stock suspension

Postby geneius811 » Mon May 26, 2014 11:43 pm

Im thinking of upgrading my springs on my NC. I've searched on this forum, and everyone here pretty much had the Bilstein shock upgrade from the factory. I'm leaning towards to progress springs, as I read so much good things about them. Anyone here have progress springs on non-bilstein factory shocks? How low was the drop? I'm probably going to upgrade my wheels to 17's as well. The purpose of the car is pretty much a weekender/canyon carving type of driving. I already upgraded the front and rear with the RB sways. Hope someone chimes in with their opinions

Lots of customers have done the Progress springs on the non-bilstein factory shocks and reported the results made them happy. Sorry, I don't recall at this moment if heights ended up much different than Bilstein equipped cars.

I installed them on mine, drop was not much at all, I can't remember off hand how much, but it was maybe half an inch. Ride was better and handling was much better as roll was reduced by a massive amount over stock springs.
