Csnpsu,


I suggest to look at the other Q's.... Sus Downs Sit low and still a factory ride on stiffness. but to some it's to low for the area they live in... others are fine with the height it gives... Most in the Jersey and NY area are using Downs vs the Sus just due to snow and Pot holes in the area... here in LA are Sus and a Few Down again its the area and if your willing to go that low...


I've been in both Dows and Sus and the rides are very comfortable and almost like a sport stiffness... Now vs Coils you get much more options like height adjustment and dampening...hard or soft you the ride your looking for...


As for Swift? I do sale those and haven't seen or heard anyone riding them direct though I've seen upgraded soils with swift and work great...


so in all its all about location, stance look you are wanting and to some the price.... there is plenty of options and more coming...




Thanks!

Still trying to figure out how to reply to a particular post (any help here would be appreciated)

Csnpsu:

I'm seeing a 1.4"F and 1.2"R after 1 week.
The rear does seem still lower than the front imo. I'm currently running Michelin xice xi3 19" 245/40/19 and the ride is very close to stock (Q50s AWD). I haven't ran it on the Run Flats yet as I received the car in winter but I'm expecting a rougher ride. I might just change out the run flats on the recommendations from this forum.

The roads here in Montreal are like a motocross track so if I'm saying the ride is good .. It's good lol ! I wouldn't dare run super downs though as that would be pushing it.

Will our stock camber settings align well with the RSR Down SUS springs? They do ~1" drop front and rear. I dont want to go through a camber kit, wondering how tolerable our stock camber settings will go.

I'm curious to know this as well. I'm running super downs and its low. More aggressive than I expected and I'm thinking about going with the down sus or tanabe

Do you have any pics of your G on the other site?

Edit: I'm so smart. I figured out that I could just search your handle on the other site. Duh.

Do you go back to stock height during the winter months in montreal?

Kind of an old thread but does anyone have pics on Swift Springs to share? Interested in seeing how low it sits and if anyone has tried them on an RS400 AWD?
