Coilovers

Recommended Posts

Currently got tein hr coilovers on my s13. Want to go lower but I'm already at the bottom of the thread so obviously can't go any lower? Or is there some trick to go lower. Trying to avoid buying new ones. But powered by Max seem pretty cheap and go ridiculously low. Thoughts?

Chopping the springs will completely f**k the whole set up. Bad idea I think.

I had rear springs chopped on my Tein's and if anything, Just made it a bit more less stiff obviously. Handling wise it wasn't bad. But definently prefer a proper matched setup WITHOUT chopped springs.

The helper spring is the spring that sits ontop of the main spring? Really short?
