Ok you guys I think I've read just about every post dealing with suspension shock/spring. But still...........

Just to set the record straight with me for I'm trying to see what would be better for my car set up. I really need your thoughts.

I have 225/40/18 with 42 offset

which would best suit my needs with my wheel set up? eibach/konis or h&r/konis

eibach/konis will = what for me (mild and soft?)

h&r/konis will = what for me (low and stiff?)

Heres what I want:

Height: front about one to two fingers / rear about two fingers

Ride: closes to factory of course (I'm realistic though)

Please include perch settings that would be best for my description. And I'll be done with this.

Thank you in advance...

Well since no one else will respond. Reno go with Eibach/konis front on lowest perch rear mid perch and you should be happy with that, your car will not be slammed but it will give the look I think you want, the back will be somewhat higher but when people get in it will level out.

Thats just my opinion.

I have just that set-up on my GS. Here's what I've found about the stance. With an empty trunk, the car would have a "raked" look. That was the case with my car until I had my amps and subs installed. Now, it seems pretty much even (and maybe even a little low in the back - not by much though; maybe about a 1/2 finger gap difference).

If you are expecting trunk weight, you might want to take that into consideration.

Just out of curiousity, do you have a pic of the car Reno? Kinda hard to tell sight unseen.
