I searched but really didnt find any answerings

So I want some springs for my car something along the line of 1.8 all around. Now is there anything that has a half decent ride and handling with out bump steer?

The Intrax springs seem to have exactly what im looking for

anyone using them?

I had the Intrax springs on my LC and loved them. Not sure how they will differ ride wise on the '06 as I've never tried it but I would definitely recommend the springs.

i know your not thinking about them, but dont get eibach, I was deeply dissapointed with them, mainly because I wanted performance, and all I got was a drop...

I have Zenn springs with about a 2" drop. Very good price and the ride isnt too bad. I havent noticed any bump steer.

you can always settle with the 1.6 to 1.5 drop provided by B&G suspension, i have them and they are waiting to be installed, i'll let you know the difference once i get them in. ALSO im changing my struts to KYB which is why im waiting, i have 56,000 miles on the car so i guess its a good idea to change the struts as well when i change the springs, but thats just my opinion

Sorry to go a bit off topic, but I have a real quick question to GregsterGSi....why do you have your car as a 2006 Accent GSi in your signature....cuz there is no GSi, its only the GLS, and the trim name or anything doesn't change with the Premium Sport Package, I was looking at em just for sh*ts and giggles today.

My car is a 2006 Accent Gsi in canada or GT in the US. But it was built in Nov 2005 as a 06 Model, My car is the last of the LC2s

Yeah I just looked at the Hyundai Canada website...my apologies. Here in the U.S. there aren't 2006 LC2 Accents...the only 2006 Accent on the U.S. market is that nasty sedan.

Yeah, those look pretty good. The drop isn't too extreme either. Let us know how they work out if you decide to get them.

i read the feedback for the seller and 1 of 2 complaints was from a neon owner, he said the back end wasn't low enough.

could it be due to inconsistent spring heights?

also note that the strut mount isn't level, the top of a strut spring is sloped for some reason and the strut mount which is also sloped at an angle has the match the spring's slope so it mount's at a flat 90 degree angle don't you think that explain's the height?
