Geezer Bat Inc. has a set of progressive springs that seem to be priced fairly as well.

dwdgsi03 i hear that the HR springs have really high spring rate as well. the tein H-TECHS are progressive, and the drop is very small like i mentioned earlier. check this out, compare the spring rates to the stock spring. you'll see the rates on the H-TECH are very close. http://tein.com/ford.html

S2 The Eibach suspension is alot stiffer, I noticed that it was way more of a sporty ride when I installed the springs alone.

Geezer Progressive rate springs will help!

ouikikazz no rims at all...so tien springs? What about HR? I dont want such a lower drop, the eibach has a 1.5 which looked good but i guess the ride quality sucks so what else?

frogg5872 no one can beat the roads in PA.......craters on the moon arent this big!

dwdgsi03 if you just want a smoother ride, the eibach system isn't for you. it's too stiff, the ride would be worse. i recommend getting some tein springs, the L-tech spring rates are suprisingly close to stock and the drop is minmal, maybe like 1 inch.

also, do you have rims? rim can cause a rough ride as well due to the stiffer sidewall and lower profile. i'm from new orleans, so your roads can't be worse than mine, trust me.

rocky roads, suspension

I drive in NYC (staten island in particular)...and umm lets jsut say the roads are not smooth at all, maybe if i get lucky some of the roads will be smooth in the desolate areas.

But to my main question, I want to know how I can improve my current very rough ride to a smoother ride, i have a 01 zx3 with stock suspension looking to see whats the best suspension setup to get to improve the rough ride. Suggestions? I was looking at the Eibach setup any1 think i should go with sumtin else?
