Ok I'm going to be getting some springs for my tibby and I have some questions to ask. <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>
Ok so we have:
<ul><li>eibach with a 1.2 drop</li>
<li>B&G with a 1.5 drop</li>
<li>H&R with a 1.5 drop</li>
<li>intrax with a 1.8 drop</li></ul>
My questions are:
I'm going to be leaving my stock rims on for atleast awhile, so will all of the above work with them?
Which are the best?
Will I hit bottom with the lowest at 1.8? And where can I find them to buy online? <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>
Thank you <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

i believe people that have had them have said to avoid using the intrax springs
over all i would tell you to go with the eibach springs ... a 1.2 drop might not seem like a lot but it will be lower than you think on your tibby. also when you get springs installed make sure you have an alignment done on your car directly afterward. and a camber adjustment kit might be something that you'd want to look into getting along with the springs.

try www.tirerack.com and see if they carry springs for the tiburon, which i believe they do. they might also have the camber kits.

I've heard that H&R is made by eibach. Is that true and do you recommend them? I've also heard that intrax is not the best choice. I just didn't want to get the 1.2 drop and not be able to notice a difference.

you will notice a difference with the 1.2 drop.
I dunno if H&R is made by eibach or not.
Hopefully we can get someone more qualified than me in this post to better answer your questions.

Hey Redshark,

I'd go with the Eibach... oh wait <b>I DID</b> - LOL!

It's a noticable drop and the guy from Tirerack was very helpful.

TiGgEr is right on with the "get a wheel alignment" but just not right after.
You should drive the car about 1 week to let the springs settle and then get the alignment.

Also the Eibach with 1.2" drop does not need the camber kit, at least not on 2nd gen tibs.

PS Your car will look sweet with those white wheels!

for you best quality for your money the Eibach's are the best ones you can get. You can corner and handle like a mofo with those things on.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

REDSHARK-

THE RUMORS REGARDING AVOIDING INTRAX IS RIDICULOUS. I HAVE 01 TIBURON WITH A 1.5 INTRAX DROP KIT WITH LOWER SWAY BARS. ON THE OTHER HAND A KID IN OUR CLUB HAS THE SAME CAR WITH A EIBACH 1.2 DROP KIT WITH THE SAME SWAY BARS AND THERE IS NO COMPARISON TO HANDLING OR JUST OUT AND OUT DRIVING FAVORING INTRAX THROUGH AND THROUGH!

GOOD LUCK <img src=icon_smile_8ball.gif border=0 align=middle>

Sorry, it seems I sent a previous "nothing" by error. I wanted to tell you about H&R, it's an independant brand, it makes OEM for Porsche and other fine european brands, it's high quality, I think same as Eibach.
I got H&R springs for my Elantra (1997) and it's good, rides firm but not harsh, lower too. I'm very happy with them.

For the DROP the PRICE and the QUALITY
Go as low as you can go will ya! they are sportssprings. they droped me 2.0 in front or even more and a 1.5 in the back. pretty good makes the car look more aggrestive.

Silly ricers, Honda's are for kids!

Do NOT, and I repeat... do NOT get intrax.

well I'm leaning more towards the H&R since they seem to be affilated with Eibach and they will give me a 1.5 drop. As far as the Intrax springs, having a 1.8 drop, will I be able to make it ok over speed bumps? The reason I asked is they are all over in my college parking lot and there is no way to avoid them. I DON'T WANT TO MESS UP THE BOTTOM OF MY CAR. <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

There is absoluty nothing wrong with intrax I dont know what the problem is I have had them for 8k miles and they are absoluty remarkable. No Khara your car with be fine over speed bumps. If you want a noticeble lowering differance get intrax. 1.2 1.5 is hardly a noticable differance.

Well I didn't say that I was <i>getting</i> the H&R for sure, I just said that I was heading in that direction because more people recommend them then the Intrax. <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle> Ok, another question for everyone. If I get the 1.8 vs the 1.5 or 1.2 will the ride quality be better or worse with a lower drop. I'm concerned about the way it looks, but I'm more concerned about the way it handles. <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

Yes babe, the lower your car is the better it will handle. Hence you are lowering your center point of gravity of your car, You can take turns like a " Bat out of hell"!

also the lower you go the more it will effect your camber. which will start to wear on your tires.
