You gotta look at it from Chuhatsu's perspective.

They made these from an OEM point of view. The question you should ask is: are top mount lift spacers approved for road use? If not, lift springs are the best alternative if you want to have zero issues with a vehicle on public roads.

This is mostly an issue in area(s) where key items on the car requires regulatory approval. It's why KW sells most of their road coilovers without top hats, as it won't meet TUV standards with pillowball or solid upper mounts.

Hey @mav1178

I'd love to be the test guy for these, if at all possible!

I run ST's in winter, and stock suspension with a 10mm lift shim in winter. I live in New England where we get oodles of snow, and run a Forester size winter so I can prove out just how much clearance difference there is.

I also do my own DIY string alignments with access to a rack, and installs so there shouldn't be any issue with confirming a proper setup.

(And have access to the @LiftedBRZ for back to back comparisons :P )

Finally, taller springs! I have been looking for them forever.

Hope to see the spring rates for the different sets. The spring rate of the set offered by TRD is too stiff, I am hoping for spring rates closer to the OEM rates.

Please let us know when you hear from Chuhatsu about the spring rates.

Thanks for the tip.

The taller bumpstops might also just be a different and softer spring rate, so that instead of hitting a shorter, sharper ramp up in spring rate farther down in the travel with OEM bumpers, you have a more progressive change earlier on. But, I don't know.

These would be fun with some custom valved Bilstein B6.

so you can run these with stock everything else? I'd be very interested, I seem to rub on absolutely everything, If the spring rate is oem or higher and the handling won't be destroyed anyways.

Things like this make me really excited for the twins to be around $5-10k in the future. The twins are going to be everywhere and at that price point I would not hesitate to install these springs and make a ice racer out of one.

The new 240sx

At <$10k engine swaps and suspension setups galore. But because you can find out how good they are on the internet, not word of mouth like the old days I don't think we'll see flatline <$5k prices for a long time, maybe never, kinda like WRX's there will always be demand for the chassis, at least where I live now. Some regions though I see people having trouble selling 86's at $13k in decent condition.

I just went and looked at WRX's and the only ones under $5k are 15 years old, nearing 200k miles and have problems. Ridiculous.

We live in opposite worlds. In upstate NY there will never be a demand for the twins. People just buy WRX's bc they only want one car so it better be AWD. (We are #1 in the states for annual snowfall.) You rarely see the twins around here and yet you can throw a rock, skip it off one wrx and bank it into two others. Ill bet in the next 5-10 years they will be under 10k. At least in my miserable part of the world.

I'm waiting for Japan to reply about the spring rates.

MSRP $420 and raises the car approx. 15-20mm.

Waiting for a reply on the spring rates. They are meant to be reused with stock shocks.

Have you put them on and tested them yet? I'd love to know how they feel and perform.
