actually from what i heard most people with oe got like 1.25 to 1.5 drop. the oe seems to be way too softsongoku said:H&R Sports springs will give you 1.75 drop both front & back. Comptech's about the same, OE series about an inch shorter than sports.
rominl said:what kind of info you want on them?
they give around 1.75 drops all around i believe. people say that it's a bit harsher than the comptech.
how many fingers you got for the gap now? i have comptech drop, which is a bit more than the h&r, and i have like 1 1/2 fingers gap. so i think 2 finger should be right for h&r sport? how long have you installed the spring for? you probably need around 3 weeks to sometimes a month to have them settled.konigstiger said:Escamar,
I have a 2000 Acura TL w/ stock rims and just recently lowered it with H&R Sport. So far, I didn't notice any compromise to the stock ride except when I tried to clear speed bumps. I've alwyas avoided potholes, and so I haven't noticed any difference when I hit one, for sure I would have gotten more thuds from hitting them. The ride is a bit bouncy after dives, but I hope this is due to the springs not settle yet. The best plus is the stiffer ride, it certainly helped a lot when I did the 360 degree turn on highway ramps. Overall, I'm satisfied with this setup.
Anyways, I'm into this spring because of the look, I've always wanted a wheel gap like that of BMWs, narrow enough and doesn't make the car look too slammed. My wheel gap is now 2 fingers in the front, and 1 finger in the rear.
P.S : Can anybody with H&R sport check their wheel gap again, I've been hearing that the gaps will be 2 fingers all around, that is certainly not the case with mine, maybe I need to add something else ?
yes you are smoking my comptech gave me 2 in the front and 1.75 in the back. it's weird, coz' you are the first guy that has uneven drop on front and back?Austin519 said:Escamar:
Had my H&R Sports for some time...two finger gap...a little more drop to the front than the rear...about 1/4". I would say 2" front 1.75" rear...however that may just be that the car had more gap in the rear to begin with. The ride is much better than progressive Comptechs...I believe they had a 2.1" drop? Or am I smoking something? I've ridden in both...and these are definitely softer...softer than the Eibachs as well...and the cheapest. I'm happy with my decision :thumbsup:
