Springs and Coilovers Thread

This is meant to be a thread where we can keep track of all springs and coilovers available for our cars. I'm sure with this initial post I will have missed a couple but the whole point is for all of us to contribute to this thread so we have a one-stop location for lowering our cars.

I'll just mark them as unconfirmed for the time being. That way when we have users that have tried them out we can update the thread. The BC racing BR coilovers were listed the same as these others at one point. Then CarbonSmoke got a set and proved they work.

That works. Carbon smoke got his specially made. These listed from ebay are for the hybrid version, which I remember needed some sort of special adapter or nut or something

@known2ridenaked , Amazing job!!!
When I asked for a list of springs/coilovers I never expected someone to put together something done as well as you have, especially in such a short amount of time.

Thank you very much!!!
