with this 'highly scientific method' i opted for 8" tall springs to factor in a stiffer 250lb spring to try to approximate the same amount of drop. I think if down the road i went with a 325, i might have to get a 7.75" spring to get the same drop.
yeah it's not the most scientific way to go about things, and i was fully prepared to go trial and error, but luckily i got what i wanted on the first try. =)
btw, kid how's ur JDM doing?

Car looks good. What are the rims/tires ?? Big ups for the THULE!

damn. beat me to it dave del....i've been eyeing that coil-over set up for a while now. i hope nick still has more in stock. I've still got alot going on that's preventing me from buying them. =( if cutting doesn't work out for ya, you could always try the eibach ERS springs like I did. they come in various lengths. i got 250lb, 8" tall ones and they sit great. I might go 350 up front and 300-325 out back in the future.
and for the record, if nick decides to put something out better for the rear setup, i'd be one of the first in line.

|christian900se||If you ever made a full set of coilovers for ng900s, I would buy it immediately. But I would probably get a full chassis brace first since I feel the Konis on full firm don't act as effectively as they should with all the body twist in my vert.|

|GenuineSaab||Something to remember with stiffer springs it can be lower since there will be less compression on the same input force. In other words the stiffer springs keep the car up off the bump stops.|

|2002BlackViggen||With my experience on Boston roads, I don't know how you handle your daily commute. I would not risk it to go this low, don't want to lose a bumper or maybe an oil pan. You've got guts to drive like that in Boston.|

|GenuineSaab||I have a couple solutions for the rear. Been playing with it for a few years Just takes custom shocks with shorter travel or some other sort of compromise on the rear. This is why all the aftermarket rear springs have "dead" coils. So they don't fall out when jacked up.|

I miss my ng900 being lowered, I got a bit of rake on it but it drove like crap with the 6pt brace on it:
Great job on the coilovers, if only Nick made something up for the rear!

|dave del||Thanks guys! I put a lot of work into installing them and I'm glad you guys like it i figured that most wouldn't be into it because people dont go out of their way to make a saab low or have some sort of decent stance. you see it with volkswagen and other euros but not saabs, which have just as much potential if not more to look really good and it bums me out. I might opt for different wheels soon.....bbs lm reps, the dish and lower offset will really make this setup shine|

|squarl||These look great. Way to go for these coils. And I've got a soft spot for raked cars so I really like how it looks as is|

1) Give the springs a couple of weeks to settle. Then see how you like it.
2) That rake looks pretty cool. Most lowering springs even the height at all corners, and the car looks ass-heavy.

|dave del||hahaha maybe i'll slam it this week and show a pic. also i dont know how I feel about cutting the rear springs I'll figure something out soon.|
