Quoting Romanova:

I'm doing AGX and H&Rs on my ride... do I need to cut the bump stops at all?




I did but I am unsure if it's a requirement, this set up is so stiff I highly doubt I have ever touched the bumpstops in normal driving.



How do you make a small fortune racing? Start with a very large one!!!

Quoting KiNgMaRtY:

Unless H&R changed the rear springs? Can those of you with the uncut and cut springs post a part number if possible? I know the H&R's that are on 802 are cut per prev owner and the ones on 611 who knows but I remember there being a bit of difference in how many coils. I will have to check next time I work on my buddies now 611



Was working on the the VR-4's this weekend. Notice one says EK which are on 802

I'm running the agx h& r combo, love the ride. Did not cut the springs or bump stops.

I notice a bit of rake in mine, but the car seems to sit level with a full tank of gas.

"take" = "rake"...
Mine is raked a lot with the H&R/AGX combo. I don't notice it at all, though. Hasn't sat on them in years.

Waking up a old thread instead of starting a new one...

I just got TEIN H springs and AGXs on my Celica and I absolutely love the ride/look. H had a .08" drop instead of the more aggressive drop than the S springs.

Anyway, I want to give the Galant the same treatment. The reviews for the H&R springs and AGX combo seem to be a mixed bag. It sounds like H&R did change the part number at some point.

Does anyone have the current H&R springs with AGXs? Seems to be the only choice now without going coilovers.

Could you please post a picture?

Are you still happy with the setup?

Yes h&r changed. I forgot what happened. Bought out or changed factories. The newest versions are def different from the OG h&r's for our platform.

Tried to pm you but it says you are not a current user.

I have a freshly powder coated set of rare kg/mm springs from Japan. Not sure how low they are. $100.00 for the set.
I also have a NIB set of zoom springs from japan. $300. These I can def look up the drop on them since it's printed on the box.
