H&Rs kickass.. great performance and a considerable drop. ryan will say the eibachs are better in all ways... but the only actual evidence ive ever seen of the eibachs spring rate vs other springs is that the H&Rs came out ontop..

realistically even with good struts, no spring is going to make as big of a change as sway bars.

TRD = Eibach

H&Rs/Eibach, doesnt really matter. the Eibachs have a high spring rate, just like the H&Rs, they both have no history of sagging (unlike ST springs), the only real difference is the H&Rs are lower.

for me, i want low. i have Koni Yellows, so i can run them full firm, and if they are too low, i can make spacers. hell, i could make a 1" spacer to raise it up, but still get the advantage of higher spring rate and stiffer shocks.

damn straight hehe

simple question is how much of a drop you want, aside from that there isnt much difference.

so have you decided what kind of shocks your going to get ryan?

Drop

I like the 1.5" in the front, but the 1" in the back is what I'm not sure about. Maybe it's better to go with the Eibachs and save my exhaust. I just want a noticable drop. I didn't even know Ryan's car was lowered until he told me.

Oh yeah, well yesterday I drove a MKIV to Kelowna and back... Too bad one of the turbos took a shit driving through Hope, no boost + big metal intake/exhaust restrictions + clouds of blue smoke with every shift == slow Supra going up the coke.

Still gets a fuckload more looks than my MKIII does

How it compares to the mk3?... Let's say no comparison

A friend of mine bought it (DJ DZ on here and SF), and we were taking it to another friend in Kelowna (Simba on here and SF) to see what he thought of the various issues it has (200,000km)... Turns out we were right about the burning oil being a turbo issue, as they fucking melted halfway there

Sweet ass wicked car though, I'm definately buying one as soon as I can afford it.

Post Supra

Saw a red MKIV at the Cheron at Woodgrove mall in Nanaimo yesterday. The guy told me to stop drooling on his hood.

you could always pay like ??? bux and get what i had done

that was too much money to pay not that i think of it, but i was in a serious fucking bind, either it was have it custom made on the spot or wait....for greddy.... yeah, right.

kenny does do some amazing work, tho. its just a matter if you actually need that quality of work or not is the question....
