    Spoon springs just installed. Initial impressions are that it feels very similar or even better than stock in regards to ride quality. I will post additional pictures of drop and update impressions if anything changes.

    Mine were installed today too and I agree with this sentiment. My initial pics are in the FK8 Master Spring thread as well.

    Nice!! Are these lower than Eibach Prokit? Is it more even all around vs Eibach prokit where the front seems a bit higher than the rear?

    I believe they're designed to be about the same as Eibachs in terms of drop, it miiiight be slightly more even than Eibach, but about the same.

    I'd love to hear from more people that have these installed on how the ride is as you've driven on them more. I've been eyeing these springs to drop the car a little and retain stock ride characteristics (I mainly just want to close the wheel gap a bit without ruining the ride).

    Only have one. In addition to the Spoon spring, the front pins are removed and I have Eibach adj rear control arms. Wheels are CE28Ns (18x9.5 +42) w/Conti EC DWS06 255/40.

    Do you get any clunking noise in the front during dips and humps? I do. I the left side. I know another guy getting noises on both front.

    I’ve had mine installed for around 1k miles and 3ish months now... no noise at all from suspension - sounds exactly like it did when stock. I did cut the bumpstops during installation.

    I got a chance to ride in his car yesterday, no clunking noises to be heard.

    I could tell a difference from stock, but it didn’t feel sloppy or like the car was over sprung, just a little stiffer than stock. I’ve only ridden in stock and these so I can’t speak to how they are vs Eibachs but I’m convinced on buying these for my own CTR as anything stiffer would feel like a bit much for a DD. Maybe I’m just getting older, but after driving on stock for a few months I don’t want to deal with crazy stuff suspension again.
