A few months ago when I was asking in a previous thread about what springs to use for a 1 1/2" drop and decent ride , some said the sport springs and some said cut down stock springs, (steeda doesnt make sport springs for the 99-02 anymore)-----I went with the progressive H&R sport springs. The drop was prefect but I have found that the progressive part of the H&R is not really progressive as the progressive part of the spring (4 or 5 coils) is coil bound just sitting in the driveway and the ride is a little stiff (mostly in the rear) with a short choppy bouncy feel. So now im wondering if the stock coils cut down by one coil will be a better alternative for the drop and the ride? I talked to H&R about the coil bind with the progressive springs and they gave me a kind of lame explanation for it and why it is normal---really!!??
