Then you probably don't want Eibach Sportlines either. Well maybe the shocks will blow first.

Thought bout buying another coils... but just trying out struts & springs options to see if it works better for my life style more than coils.
My $0.02

I DD'd Pro-Kits for 65,000 miles. IMO, they are a great option for pairing with OEM struts. They are progressive. Which makes the ride still comfortable, while being stiffer than OEM.

Just googled the spring rate on Sportline. Yeah... def stiff, especially the rear... Oof! Don't think, struts will blow though. At least didn't read bout that issue on our car.

Thanks for your feedback. Yeah, that's what I read everywhere (so far). Both Hotchkis & Pro-Kit work nicely on stock struts.

What coils do you have? You could go super custom and get exactly what you want. I bet you get a big discount anyway, but most people have trouble selling lowering springs.

And what year is your car? I wouldn't want to use 2013 struts. I'd like to replace the ones on my car. I just gotta get off my ass.

I have RS-R Sports-i Moto-Spec. Moto-san was testing out RS-R Club Racer prototype, so he sold me his Sports-i. I was thinking bout doing full custom coils... but not sure it's worth doing full custom and kill it in 2~3yrs in the salted road. Plus, I'm not that famous, so don't get as much discount as a lot of ppl think.

I have '14 BRZ and struts and springs are pretty much brand new. Maybe have 3k on it (prob less than that). Cuz when I bought BRZ, within 2 months, Moto-san send those coils. After that, it's been in the garage. I was looking into Koni, Bilstein or Cusco struts, but didn't wanna spend too much if I don't like lower springs.

I just got back from a trip to Walmart with the granddaughters. WOW! Walmart was slammed with old people. The old ladies behind the deli counter were more retarded today than usual. What is sooo damn hard about understanding three quarters of a pound of ham? The retarded check out lady, who is usually slow was barely moving today. She could only use one arm because her other one hurt (she said she had "frozen shoulder").

When I got back, mrs humfrz complained that I got the generic brand of Benadryl instead of the name brand stuff. She can't seem to understand that the generic is the same stuff, same capsules, same strength, it's just packaged different and HALF THE COST. I guess it's time for another "we are on a fixed income lecture"!

The bed is still wet because the girls had a sleepover last night, because their mother had to be at her work at 0400 this morning. Yes, the "potty trained" 3 year old, which slept with us, peed the bed - big time, right past the worthless pull up type diaper thing.

I haven't had lunch yet and I'm starving. It is waaaay past my nap time - and the bed is still wet -

So, Ultramaroon, I'll tend to you later -

I've found that most people really like and recommend their springs for this car. I'm thinking it has to be the car, because normally people have issues with springs on other cars. So, maybe it doesn't matter and you will be happy with anything.


I've loved my TRD springs on stock shocks. 12k miles now. I actually think it rides better and is stiffer in corners. Been considering bilsteins, but I'm really not displeased with current handling and not sure if it will mess things up and make it too harsh.
