    Anyone buying these? http://www.gotuning.com/product_info.php?products_id=1997

    I wonder if these are a bit more engineered than the other springs out there. I would think if Spoon put their name on it, they should be performance oriented (and not just show) but I could be wrong.

    Says 20mm drop front and rear (a little less than an inch).

    They are pricey (2x competitors' pricing)

    I'm interested in the springs but not at that price point. I'll have to think about it a while...

    There's no discernible difference between Eibach, Spoon, or even Swift springs. Save yourself some coin and opt for the Eibachs. At least you get a 1,000,000 mile warranty with their stuff. :)

    Any rubbing with Eibachs (using stock wheels + tires)? Also, has it affected performance at all (handling, torque steer, etc.)

    When I lowered my '18 SI on Eibachs, I felt like it lost a little bit of "rake" because the rear was now even with the front. It could be all in my head, but I felt like it affected traction when flooring it from a stop.

    the specs seem to be the same as Eibachs(5.2 kgf vs 5.0 kgf and Eibachs are half the price. Maybe lower if you can find used. Unless you have money to waste and say you got Spoon springs, IMHO, not worth the cost. I would go w/ Swifts. I tend to pick the highest spring rate a shock can handle. Swift's performance has been proven over and over and I've already seen many FK8 owners vouch for them and very happy w/ them on our stock shocks. I guess time will tell of any short comings, but haven't heard anything, yet.
    Lastly, I'm also interested to hear any feedback on the Spoons. I always love reading product feedback. :thumbsup:

    Not sure who your guy is but we haven’t provided that information to anyone. We have production springs on our test car and have verified the specs. They might lower slightly more than 20mm, 2-3mm but definitely no where near 30mm.
