Hey Old School, did you install a camber kit as well? I'm going to have a set of HR springs and Koni's installed soon and I've heard differing opinions on the camber kit.

No I did not install a camber kit. I just bought new tires and got the car align so in a month or so I will check my tires and see if I will need one. It is lowered so it might effect the negative camber measurement. If it does than I will have to buy a kit and install it to compensate for the uneven wear of the tire.

I'm also curious about the Vogtland springs/KYB combo. If you've had the Eibach or HRs in the past, is there a noticeable difference?

I have not had Eibach or HRs so I cannot comment. But the Vogtland/KYB is tight around corners and handles well on the highway.

We put KYB's on all corners of my 91 Legend sedan about 6mos ago. Very controlled and somewhat firm ride. I am very satisfied with how it handles. Working with a rented (free..at Checker) spring compressor is not the easiest job. Be sure to replace the top bushings. All that work you may as well replace all. Be careful or get someone to do the compression. Don

Kyb's aren't a lowering strut. So if you put a lowering spring on it the strut stays compressed and can't travel so it will end up blowing. Also after I put the new tires on the gs and got it aligned I didn't have to get camber kit! But I did replace inner and outer tie rods!

Koni reds or Koni yellowes they are the same just painted diff colors. They are adjustable and if you check out my fut project you will see how low mine is.
