Hey all! Sorry I have been absent a bit. Life has been kicking my butt haha. So my question is which lowering springs/coilovers do you recommend? Do you all notice any differences in ride comfort with springs vs coilovers? I am on a budget so anything reliable that won't cost me tons of money would be awesome. The other factor is I have my daughter with me once a day or so in the car so nothing that rides too rough.

Any input would be awesome :) and any product recommendations would be superb.

TEIN springs are great, I like mine. If you go coil-over I have heard great things about KSport. Just remember springs are a couple hundred dollars, coil-overs are one thousand to $1,500. Big difference in price.

If you want the K-sport, I have been working with Eric over there while contracting them to build my N17 Coilovers.

I tore down a K-sport shock during testing and it was a ~50mm monotube design, almost identical to What Bilstein sells to professional race and rally teams. I was very impressed. and they even offer an inverted strut if you intend on subjecting the shock to some abuse.

I can get you a deal on them.. Plus keep in mind The Versa factory shocks are pretty soft. you really cannot ask much more then stock spring rate from them, without experiencing "honda bounce"

Disclaimer: I do not work for any company, but I have worked with several of these brands doing shock/strut rebuilds and race tuning.

J, how bumpy is the ride on the springs?

Tree, thanks for the advice. What kind of deal are you talking. Springs are most likely my route due to financial obligations etc.

I've had my TEIN springs since march and love them. No need to upgrade shocks. Unless you have money to blow.
Josh is it a bumpy ride or no?

Depending on which application, Teins can be hit or miss. Glad you're enjoying the new ride height for those who have them. As for springs or coilovers, there's nothing wrong with going with springs. Coilovers just give your more adjustability and are probably more worth while if you are planning to do a little more than your average on the street driving.
