Neuspeed Race Springs

I have decied to upgrade my supension set up with some Neuspeed Race Springs. The thing is they will be on Tokico Blues for right now? Does anyone know how the ride quality will be, will it mess up anything. The shock set up will only be temporary until I can get some Koni Yellows. Thanks

i was on neuspeed race springs w/ tokicos for almost 3 years..and i rolled on 18's. but i'd recommend a camber kit coz the tires will wear out really fast w/ a drop that low.

Did you have any trouble with your tires rubbung against the fender? And does your control arm hit the inner fender walls at all. Thanks

never had that problem..and i always used 215/40/18's. if you ever plan on dropping a car, especially at 2in. or more, you gotta invest in performance shocks/struts, camber kits, and when you buy rims, make sure the offset is made for hondas(+40...+44)
it helps so that the rims don't stick too far out the fender, or too far in.

Thanks for the feedback. For now I will use the tokico blues but in two months will uprgrade to some Koni Yellows. The drop will be on my stock wheels and tires, but I will still get a camber kit. Just wanted to make sure the wheels wouldn't rub or the control bar would hit against the fender wall. Its just that I was reading some other posts in Suspension and alot of people were having that problem. Could it be that they are using bigger rims and wider tires. Thanks again

Definately an excellent spring choice. Good luck with the tokico combo. Let us know how the ride is in the "rate your suspension" thread. May I suggest the Neu. Koni Yellows when you get your Konis. This combo is by far my best combo yet. I LOVE the ride with them. I had a problem with the control arm hitting the inner fender wall with all my other suspension combos but not this one.

What size tires did you have when your control arm was hitting the inside fender. Do you think I would have that problem if I use my stock rims and tires. Thanks

I'm running neuspeed race and AGX's and I haven't had a problem with my control arms hitting. Good luck with the new setup.

I was running the stock set up with all my suspension setups. The Neu. race and Koni Neu. Yellows have given me no problems whatsoever and I clear speed bumps no problem and it handles great and the ride is great! I am currently riding on stock wheels with Yokohama AS 430 195-60-R15. 2 finger wheel gap all around gives aggressive rake up front.

Gr-2's are meant as stock replacements and are not intended for lowering spring use. Get the AGX's You won't be disappointed.

They will void the warranty yes, but everybody I know who runs them has no problems w/ them on AGX's. I def. think the yellows would be more comftorable though

Have you got some Neuspeed Race Springs? I have a set that I'm selling so just let me know if you need them!

I replied to your PM.

I just have to see if I win this auction for the Sprint springs so I can be "slammed."

Yea...the Neu. Koni shocks were made for the Neu race springs. I absolutely love the ride and all everyone does is praise it! It feels very weird to finally be praised about the suspension set up after so many disappointments with all my previous setups. The ride is VERY smooth but stiff when it needs to be. I would definately recommend saving a little more for the Konis. One of the best investments I have made are my Konis.

I have a couple of questions/comments:

1) The problem with the control arm hitting the inner fender is not a problem with wheel/tire combination, but a function of lowered height and camber correction kit used, right? Wheel/tire should not effect that part.

2) How is the overall ride with the Neuspeed race springs? I want something that will lower the car, but still ride pretty decent since it is a daily driver and I commute 100 miles/day, including time in the snow.

3) Why not go with the Neuspeed Super Cup Kit that gets you Neuspeed Race Spring kit, and 2 front and 2 rear Neuspeed Koni yellows all for the grand price of $599. Shoot, the front and rear Konis from Neuspeed are $565.60 alone. For an extra $34 you get the Race Springs, too.


I would really like to hear some feedback on items #2 and #3 above. I was going to go with the H&R Sport springs with the Neuspeed Koni yellows and a camber correction kit, but the H&R springs are around $150 and the Neuspeed Konis are $565.60. With the $120 or so saved by going with the Super Cup Kit, I could fit the price of camber kits in there too.

Thoughts?
