I'm debated between these (and only these) option for suspensions, for street use: what do you think?

for what its worth, I just put 2018 ts suspension on my 2013 BR-Z (which previously had a PP setup). The front is down almost 10mm and the rear is higher by about 5mm...

which ones lower the most? id go with whatever ones lower the most. thats really the only reason to get lowering springs, right? its not like "your ride will improve" (i guess youll have a lower center of gravity, but give me a break) so i would get ones that will actually make your car look lower after you go through all the work. good choices btw

All the lowering springs I've looked at have higher than stock spring rates, so your ride will definitely change. "improve" is subjective, but it will be different.

I'd stay with stock PP Package, if it wouldn't be so high... I'm even debated of last tS stock suspensions, as they are even higher than stock...

Long story short I'm going back to Ts 2018 Springs. Yes I was able to source another set


What happened? Swift SR springs are too stiff for daily.


What changed? Its planted on flat roads and looks very nice with Swifts. I miss the stock balanced feel and slightly loose back end from the Ts Springs. Front and Rear dropped by half inch too.



I vote 2018 Ts Springs. In the end its your car and your choice
