Help Choosing Springs

Hello All,

I was very close to importing some springs from the UK much to my moms displeasure, so I put that idea on hold. So again I'm delving back into researching springs. Right now I'm looking at two sets: H&R Sport Springs Vs. Koni Sport Springs. What I would like to know is which set is stiffer. I know that both companies won't divulge information about these springs so that doesn't help. I also know that the H&R's are progressive and I assume that the Koni's are as well, don't know if that helps either.

Anyway, back to the question at hand. Do you guys and gals know which set of springs is stiffer?

H&R race springs. Since you have a '07 car you'll need the ''Omni kit'' from Massive performance. Get the H&R race springs & Koni yellows for a '00-'05 car & use the Omni kit for your '07 car. Do you have any idea how much shipping is? Wow.

I appreciate the input Felix, but it's the Sport springs to which I'm inquiring. I already have Massive's Omni kit and a set of AGX's in my bedroom.

The shipping was not too bad I guess. For a 10kg package, it was 62=$92.64. The total was around $235. I was fine with that. The only thing I was concerned about customs/duty fees.

No thanks. Not really a fan of the Eibach stuff, at least for the focus. I thank you for your input though.

Max would be a 2-inch drop, but I would prefer a 1.5 inch drop.

eibach sportlines are one of the SOFTEST aftermarket spring sets available for the focus, so I can see why he'd want to avoid that. beyond that I cannot comment on differences between H&R vs. Koni sport springs. I WOULD say however, I'd probably go with H&R just based on name brand preferances
