^Neuspeed used to be made by H&R, and I think highly of my NS sports on the Lude... It's on rails, but it can be a bit jarring ("race" springs are obviously harder), but that is partly the fault on AGXes on the one setting under the stiffest (3/4) and poly bushings... I THINK the H&R sports for the lude are a bit lower spring rate (softer) than the NS sports.

What a great thread... you guys really have it together... everytime I think I need to ask a question I find the answers.

I don't have the money now, just time for research, and my plan for sometime has been to eventually upgrade the suspension on our ST to an SVT setup. I like the H&R progressives or maybe the eibach pro kit with some koni shocks (was there a review for the non adjustables??... I forgot...). But... the ST is our snow car right now and for long distance trips we want to maintain plenty of comfort... We did test drive an SVT on some mtn lake road though, and I think that will suffice as a good compromise of handling and comfort...

When we want to rip it we get in my prelude...

It's lowered about 1.7" on Neuspeed Sports and AGXes with poly bushings from ES all around... and the strut bars... When the OP was talking about some of those balanced setups rotating so well it made me thing of my Lude! It's funny how much of the info on Ludes transfers to focuses (I.E. ground control coilovers w/ koni yellows is considered one of the best combos).

How do KYB GR2s compare to stock SVT dampers? Are "Ford Racing" parts legit?
