I wouldn't go cheap on suspension. Your life depends on it. Save up and get quality springs. I paid $200 for my springs which is average for most brands. You may shop around and compare.

If you don't want to spend the 200+ then opt for Megan, they are still a re-known reliable brand and go for about 20% less then most other known brands. I wouldn't trust a no name brand off ebay.

When TEIN springs are so inexpensive right now there's no reason to go cheap.

I would not do it. I am a paycheck to paycheck life style, and I would rather deal with Stock over taking a risk like that. best bet is to look around find a good quality spring for a good price. put a little into your PP each week till you have the cash! this way you have the money out of mind till you can get the cash together for something that wont risk your safety.

Garbage.

I have bascially zero interest in modifiying my Versa other than the stereo and speakers which I have already done.

My long-term interest has been in my Honda Accord that I have had for 8 years now. When I first got it I bought all of the stupid cheap ass eBay special stuff that I thought was good, cool, and was a good value for the price. Looking back, a large majority was nothing but crap that was considered "rice". I regret buying those stupid parts and wasting the money on them, the time and effort installing them/modifying them to fit, and then the time to reinstall quality parts. After spending a few grand....on the low side probably my car is now in a state that I enjoy with high quality/expensive parts. But, it nevers ends....i'll soon need to fix some mild rust that is forming and once I get a garage I will actually be able to swap in a k series, build the motor, and add a mid size turbo....in addition to a multitude of other things.

My point is that you don' have to buy super expensive parts but the cheap parts will actually cost you more in the long run as they have me. In addition, use some common sense and don't believe any of the HP/MPG gains advertised on eBay no matter if it is a Chinese copy or a big name company.

If you still don't believe me I invite you to go on to Honda-Tech.com and browse through the suspension sections. You'll find 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 on the no name eBay springs and the opinions of those who have bought them.

Your $100 purchase will blow your factory struts, cause the ride to be bouncy/stiff, and will cause the other suspesnion components to wear out extremely fast.

Looked this up during my free time today: look up autoanything.com coupons in google, apply the 10% off of orders over 200 on autoanything.com, get the Tein springs $181 shipped.

If I wasn't trying to get out of debt, I would have pushed the purchase button.

Just save your money for some coilovers you'll thank me later
^ this. I had the same plan, to buy springs then upgrade. Instead I rode stock and saved my money. I've lowered almost every car I've owned (mostly Honda's) and have found coilovers are the way to go and Ksports are the best I've ever had.
