Springs & Sways

There are so many manufactures of 1" lowering springs and sway bars. It becomes hard to make the best decision. I want to lower my car & still have a comfortable ride. I also want to control my body roll. I like the Hotchkis & LSR looks pretty good as well. What do you guys think ?

Very pleased with my Pfadt stage II spring and sway package (1.25 inch drop) both for handling improvement and looks.

Our BMR level 1 handling package is a nice and affordable package that includes sway bars and lowering springs. With this package it comes with our 1" lowering springs but if you decide you want a little more drop they can be swapped out for any of our other BMR lowering springs. If you have any questions or if there is anything we can help you out with let us know.

Anytime you lower a car the ride will become more firm but that is not to say it has to be bad. The Pfadt and BMR lowering springs ride very well and for that reason we recommend them most often. They both also offer spring and sway bar packages that will save you a few dollars. Feel free to hit me up if you have questions about either.

My Hotchkis springs are comfortable. But as in all drop springs a bit more firm over bumps and bad pavement. Just depends on what comfortable means to you
