he cut his stock springs. Originally when i first started talking to him he had some coil overs from the civic and that gave him a 5 inch in the front and a 4-1/2 in the back. He said when he lowered them down all the way it drove like shit. he said it was like not having springs at all. He said that his cut stock springs gave him the same ride as the lowered coils.
Well I was going to buy the coils from him but some one beat me to it. Any way he said that there is no plates you need to build or anything it bolts right up.
If your smart you can get some from the 200 sx. That is the same spring size and you can get the coils from aerospeed that will give you a little more then a 4 inch drop.
