Im looking for a gen with the raked look.

Dont know if this is the right section. But thanks.

Also are there any springs that will sit like this or only coil overs

Gens have a bit of rake stock, so any springs or coilover settings that maintain a neutral or front biased drop will maintain this. Make sense?

It doesn't look bad or super noticeable in person, but with my Tien S.tech springs the back sits about 1/4 inch higher than the front. I wish it was all about an inch lower, but like i said its not very noticeable unless you are looking to see if there is a rake at all.

I just installed the Road Magnet springs...they for sure have a slight rake. I promise better pics and a mini review when I get a decent day to get out my camera; winter just isn't going away...



With better lighting, the rake is more noticable.

Just an FYI...the advertized drop is 1.2" F, 1.0" R. Actual, it was 1.25" F, 1.625" R (now 2 weeks after install).

The Road Magnets settled??? I wouldn't have expected that from them. Updates on ride quality appreciated.

Actually, they didn't really settle...the height you see is about exactly what it was when I first lowered the car down after install.

Quick ride quality thoughts: Overall, it honestly feels about the same as stock, though a bit smoother over smaller undulations in the road (i.e., gaps between concrete sections of freeway, etc.), which I attribute to the fact that the front and rear springs are both progressive-wound. It's tougher to do a random "power over" slide, it just seems to have a bit more grip and not want to let go. More pics and further review coming soon... /threadjack :)

Back in the days (late 90's), the Asian crowd called this the "budda" look here in SoCal. Sitting low in a slammed coupe (typically a Honda)....budda all the way....lol.
