Insane I took an inch off the front and rear springs and I don't bottom out.. Btw it rides much better with a inch off of all coners for anyone who has been thinking about it!

trevor even with 10 bags of bark in the back of my car i still had 1 inch of travel till the bumpstops. i never botom out. its such good suspension. its soft when you need it and still cornners well. if the rear is loaded with weight theo the back end comes out

jetrinka Strange. Don't you have a gutted interior? I don't see how you would bottom em out with nothing in the car. It probably rides a lot higher without all the weight in it too.

mlbbaseball well, i still bottom out in them! but i drive much harder than most, including track days. i had 205/45/15's on Rcomps and i was still rubbing.

They're within a few lbs/in of Eibach Pros so not that low. I'd refer to them as be in the moderate range.

jetrinka They are about 30 lbs higher than the SVT's and an inch lower. Why do you say that? Do they feel stiffer than that or something?

MaroonZX3 They are most likely made by well known spring manufacturer, but probably to Roush specifications.

jetrinka Thats one of the things I read. I also heard that they were rebadged progress springs as well. Neither were ever supported with concrete proof of by someone who actually worked at roush. I am pretty confident this is the right answer. The only mystery is why it would take them till now to answer the question of what the spring rates were outright.

mlbbaseball IIRC, they are rebadged Eibachs. Roush never released the spring rates.
