Has anyone used or heard any info on Sprints springs for the 200SX SE-R? they have a 2 inch drop and was just wondering if there are any bottoming out issues associated with this brand. TIA!

Let me quote Kojima in all his greatness:

2" is too low. I have the Eibach Sportlines which is a 1.8" drop. That is too low. I wouldn't recommend them. Get the Eibach Pro-kits.

I've run the Sprint Springs on Both of my B14's. Very good springs..both times my cars were lowered evenly all the way around and the car rode pretty decent on the factory struts. The only reason im not running them now is because I went with the GC. If your not looking to spend the 400 on the GC but still want your car lowered at least 2 inches...Go with the Sprints. I actually still have the set from my 2nd car in the Garage. i know the 2 inch drop isn't as functional as a 1.8..but my GC are lowered almost all the way down and the car looks damn good in my opinon. By the way with lowering the car that far your going to need to get some type of camber/toe correction to keep your tires from wearing..I bought these bolts that replace the lower bolt that bolts the strut in place. After these bolts and a thrust alignment I haven't had any abnormal tire wear on either car. Car is a little bouncier now with my car that low. (especially since my factory struts are gone) but im installing some KYB GR2's tomorrow.

I have Sprints installed on my car paired up with KYB AGX. The ride isn't the best, i bottom out a lot, and bounce all over the road. The car looks cool, its lowered evenly, and Im young(so I don't mind the ride). The only way your gonna make the car look cool and still retain a good ride is to buy a coilover/shortened strut setup for thousands of dollars from a company like Motivational or Truechoice.

I have the sprint/agx combo also. The ride is bearable but alot of bouncing around like any other lowering spring. If you want to lower the car go with the prokits cause 2" is really too much unless you are getting shortened struts but be prepared to pay big $ for those.
