    We do this basically in every forum we make as it's extremely useful to see your lowering spring options. It'll be especially useful for CTR owners who want to keep use of their dynamic suspension for the modes. We will see how coilovers integrate it, but initially most coilovers will likely do away with that system. For the track guys that's fine but for versatility Springs will be tour way to go!

    Someone (All-knowing?) posted the OEM springrate in this forum. It is known already. It was approx 4.5 kg/mm front and rear.

    why is swift good because they are a niche brand? that's about as stupid as it comes, they are good sure, but not because they are a niche brand.

    Meant to say that because they're niche they can focus on Springs for the limited vehicles they make. They're not like other brands like Eibach and Tein that produce springs and coilovers for so many cars that they're sometimes spread thin. Swift being a niche brand allows them to focus on what they do best which is make awesome springs.

    I don't agree with any of your comments.

    Eibach does one vehicle at a time with proper R&D (their facility is all in-house)
    Tein is also top quality.

    lol honestly I am not bashing Eibach or Tein, they have their own strengths within the industry. We could get into it and find no definitive proof as at the end of the day it's all a matter of opinion. I was just trying to clarify Swift's strength as a niche spring brand being able to focus on springs for a small selection of cars.
