Does anybody know anything about these springs? The previous owner of my car had them put on with some GAB shocks. I need to replace the shocks, but I'm wondering if I should keep the springs? The springs are neon green if that helps. thx

Gran Slam huh? Sounds like something you get at Denny's
. What kind of replacement shocks are you getting?

Well I bet the drop is pretty low if they are called "grand slam" Try to go to google and type that in to see what comes up. I never heard of em and would do some research first.

With any spring purchase, you should also get a shock that is valved for the spring rate.

yeah I tried searching google but didn't find anything. I guess I'll probably replace my whole suspension. Thinking about going with the koni full coilovers. Any thoughts on those?

Gran Slam Springs are made by eibach. So they aren't cheezy ass springs, made by Denny's or any crap like that. I had these springs on my first RS back in 95 YES 95!. YEs the color is neon green. the drop is around a 2.5 all the way around. Yes they are good progressive springs of course with eibach quality. These were the first pair of springs i bought.

This was also the era Eibach got a bad rap for their springs sagging. They are top quality now, but then they weren't held to quite the same standards.

Anywho, a progressive rate spring on a 2.5" drop is a bad, bad thing. If the spring isn't ultra stiff with that much of a drop, what is going to keep the car from bottoming out every time you hit a bump?

my friend has them on his 96 civic hb w/ tokico illuminas for 80k miles on the chassis, that thing rides not too bad, never bottoms out, it's pretty low tho, but not ghetto low, the cornering on that thing is pretty good and he has never had a problem, in fact, he said those springs are actually better than sportlines or prokit,

Yes I agree I liked them better than my sportlines or Neuspeed race springs. Stiffer and a lower drop. They get a thumbs up from me.

Yeah my car did handle pretty good, but since I blew my rear right shock I've been hearing these knocking noises over some bumps. SO I guess they're bottoming out. Oh and my car was pretty stiff I don't know if it was the springs or the shocks. But I guess its time to get a new suspension. This is the koni full coilovers I was talkng about. They sell it at Tire Rack.
