FS: BMR Lowering Springs

Long story, but the short version is I ordered a set of BMR springs and ended up with two sets, and yes I paid for both sets. So being that I only need one set of Springs I looked into returing the second set. With me paying shipping and restocking fees I figured someone local would like to gain from my loss. They are unopened in the box. The kit is the SP019 kit which is a 1" drop in all 4 corners. The link to more details....

And if you need any help installing, seeing that I just went through it, I am more than willing to help.

Asking 230 for the set.

Thanks,

Genevieve have you installed springs on your car yet? I was just wondering what you thought about the feel of the car now. I have a set and I am on the fence about installing them. I love the look of the car lowered but I am not to keen on the cars ride being overly harsh.

I have the BMR 1" drop springs on all 4 corners. In normal driving and normal size bumps I and my wife do not perceive any increased harshness. I guess it is possible to hit a large enough bump that would allow the struts and shocks to hit the bump stops with the 1" drop springs before the same bump would with the stock ride height springs. I haven't run into that at least not yet. Also, although the springs are rated at 1" drop, my particular car ( and I suspect most others ) saw a drop of ~ 1 1/8" all around after everything settled. The BMR springs are top notch and the improvement and handling as well as looks are hard to beat.

as already stated normal driving and normal bumps, no difference, car feels great, on the way to CBI there were some spots that you could feel the stiffer springs but nothing I would describe as harsh or regret from doing the new springs. Its at CBI now getting the new Bushing put in, I am sure we can work something out so you can feel the springs yourself.
