Default Road Magnet Springs?

I have tried to search for my answer but was unable to find any information regarding these springs. I have read good reviews on the Eibach and H&R springs but after seeing a few drops they seem to be more of a mild stance. The Road Magnet springs suggest they have more of a drop then the Eibach which I was originally going to purchase.

Has anyone had any experience with these springs or even better a comparison between them and the Eibachs? According to other make/model forums they seem to be on par with Eibachs but, I want to ensure I am purchasing a quality product before I lay out the cash.

Thank You

I've been around these forums for a while now and i have never even heard of them
I used to have Progress brand springs and they were a 2" drop all around

Ill have to look into the progressive springs. Do you have any pics of your car on 16" rims? I love the stance but sadly Ill be rocking my leaking stock rims until I get the cash to get some 16" steelies from the local auto salvage which I plan on getting some chrome lug nuts and beauty rings to dress them up.

I received an email from Road Magnet with answers to some questions I had asked. According the Rep their product is American made with American products out of MD. They agreed with the info I obtained through the forum and suggested the Tokico struts and shocks. I am in the process of requesting a trial product to ensure their product is everything they suggest it is. I will update with info as soon as I get a return email

Why don't you just have Roadmagnet come in the "front Door" and open a thread in our vendors section instead of trying to come in the "back Door" like you're doing now?

Firstly, to clear things up due to your insinuation. I have no affiliation with Road Magnet.

Secondly, while I can see how you could perceive my post as that it is not the nature of this thread. I was requesting information from a forum that holds a wealth of knowledge on a particular subject. Clearly no one is familiar with the brand. So I chose to share the information I had collected with the forum as I would expect everyone to do.


That being said the springs are in the process of being delivered tomorrow according to my tracking number. I'm actually headed out tomorrow to purchase the Tokico shocks and struts. I will post some before and after pics and after a few days I plan on comparing the ride to the stock suspension.

I think a friend of mine got a set of these a while ago. I wasn't really interested in it back then, but now that I'm thinking about replacing springs myself, I guess I should give him a call.

Or maybe I'll just get Eibachs...

Andys lists them and the last time I checked they were in stock. Check first with Andy's about stock status, I've heard of instances of them taking awhile to get items to the buyer that didn't turn out to be in stock.

WOW, for almost $500 a set, they better have them in stock and install them for free... btw, they usually sell $350 a set or less.
