It's so hard to sift through threads and threads of peoples cars to find specific suspension setups. If you're lowered please post a picture and spring/strut/coilover combo.

D2 coilovers. 17x7" wheels 215/45/17 Kumho Exsta tires. Alignment is still "eyeballed".






I have the ride height set on the taller side so I didn't have to change anything to fit 26 x 9.5" slicks, which just barely fit.



Here is what the ride height looked like with AGX shocks, Eibach Pro-Kit 1G front springs and H&R gvr4 specific rear springs (prior to getting the coilovers)

Need Help Guys


I am currently running KYB's W. 1g Sprint 2inch drop Springs in the front, and eibach Rears. Ever since I changed the front springs, nothing but problems. The car sits nice and low, but just the slight of bumps and low mph will make you clench your teeth, the ride is too hard and very, very uncomfortable. Can someone tell me a cost effective setup that will not hit as hard with a nice drop? Do Drop zone coils ride hard? thank you for any input

As low as that is sitting, the front is probably on the bumpstops. Upward travel in the front is the limiter on how low the car can sit.

I don't have bumpstops, if I add the would that make a diff and cause a smoother ride?

The strut is still probably bottomed out. I bet bumpstops would make it ride higher.

Yeah with a GVR$ slammed like that...it looks about 3 to 4" lower than stock, Id bet you have at most 1 inch of shock travel in the front. There is no way to get a comfortable ride when the suspension is at rest with the vast majority of the shock travel already used up. Comfortable and smooth riding Galants look like trucks....ones that look low ride like ass and are super stiff. Nature of the beast.

HEY! This looks like a truck?


I've got completely stock suspension. The smaller sidewalls (17" wheels) do make things a tad bit harsher, but car rides really well. I wouldn't want to lower it and more than an inch with the evo 9/X suspension I have fabbed up for it because I think it looks pretty damn good right now

Thanks A lot Guys,I figure the eibachs were 1inch drop, and the sprints are 2.2. So I am just going to get coilovers and try to get sumting of a drop in the middle..mayb 1.6-1.8 inch drop. My friend has agx w. Groundcontrol coilovers for 350, what do you guys think that should hopefully look decent? Or ride smoother?

Anything will ride smoother than riding on bumpstops, or no bumpstops in your case.

I have Tein HA's on 1051, which don't have any more travel than the factory struts, so the height my car is at now is as low as possible. Even now I'm sacrificing some ride quality for looks by having the car as low as it is. If I hit a big enough bump or pothole, it's felt throughout the whole car. If you wanna go that low, it's not going to ride well. Actually, if you get coilovers like mine, it doesn't ride very well at any height, due to the stiff springs.

On 503 I have AGX w/ Ground Control coilover sleeves. That's not a good setup to go low as the AGX's don't like that height and blow out. Mine are actually jacked up higher than stock to fit my winter tires though.

Man I guess I am going to have to sacrifice ride Quality Over Looks, No point in Having a Qwik AWD car and cannot enjoy it....I do not daily Drive this car, max 15miles a week, just on Saturdays and Sundays. I am definately going to get rid of these garbage sprint springs, but Do you think AGX w. maybe a 1.5 drop would be ok w. Groundcontrols? At least some what more bearable?

That is a perfect ride height! I wish mine sat like that one.

I have KYB AGX and DSM megan springs, absolutely am not happy with it. I want something higher and that rides way better and sits even. Here are pics of mine



Sorry the closest side profile pictures I have.

I don't under stand the point of this thread. If you have a spring and strut combo it makes sense to post a picture(because the height is static) but if you have coilovers it doesn't matter. You can be at whatever height you want with that.

Are you more interested in springs to just put on? If you like how one of these cars looks and its really low, then buy coilovers.
