Default Springs with LEAST amount of drop?

All,

I've searched around the forum and it seems that most folks want to do the most amount of drop... however, I was wondering does anyone know which springs offer the least amount of drop? From what I can tell the H&Rs seem to drop the least...

I know that I could go the Bilstein adjustable suspension route, but that is an expensive way...

Don't want to go too dramatic on a daily driver....

Comments or thoughts? Thanks!

BDG

Curious to hear your reason.

I told myself I just wanted Eibach's. Then only months later found myself on Candy Drops.

I believe you are correct that H&R's have the least amount of drop.

Thanks NitroPT... GREAT write up!!! Most excellent... I must've just missed it on my initial search. Thanks for reposting!

Basically, as has been mentioned many times before when ANY mods are done to the suspension ride quality is effected. Some may debate its an "improvement" some may say it "deterioriates"... in my case I don't want to get beat to death on my commute and I do carry people/things occaisonally and wanted to avoid bottoming, rubbing, etc...

However, all that being said I would like to SLIGHTLY drop the PT with minimal muss or fuss and with the amount of knowledge on the forum thought I would ask the question about minimal drop. So... I am seriously looking at the Vogtland/Tokico setup and searching for the best deal...

Thanks everyone!!!

My Eibachs ride smoother on my PT than my Wifes which rides on H&R's.

And the Eibachs sit lower. Higher ride height doesnt mean a smoother ride, alot of factors in place.

Seems you are buying because of height when that doesnt necessarily mean it will be smoother than Eibach's or H&R's

Its hard to ask about ride quality of the Vogtland's when few people on here, if any, have them.


I personally wouldnt spend all that money on one inch, but thats just me
