Default Installed Steeda Sport Springs & HD Strut Mounts

Installed Steeda Sport Springs & HD Strut Mounts today.

I wanted to get rid of the nose dive & general sloppiness of the suspension without dropping it too lower & killing the ride. I am very happy with the out come.

After - It was 1.25" drop in the rear and should drop another tenth or 2 once all settled in.

You are going to be one happy camper with this upgrade. The driveablilty is greatly improved. When I took my in for the front end alignment my camber was in spec & only needed a small toe adjustment.

Heslekrants...did you swap out the shocks and struts at the same time? If not, how is the ride?

Still running factory shocks & struts. Ride is firmer than with the stock springs but in a good way. The car feels so much more stable, especially at higher speeds. The brakes work better & it feels like it accelerates faster too. So many wins with these mods.

I got a 1.25" drop in the rear on install. I measured today (10 days later) its at 1.5". It took me less than 10 minutes to swap out the rear springs.
