It has been a little under 2 years since I first compiled the spring/coilover specifications article. What I'm finding is that alot of members are contacting me with specifications for something that appear different than what we have in the article. I've decided that the article has become outdated, and isn't as reliable as it was 2 years ago. Alot has happened in the import community in the last 2 years and most of those companies have changed/improved their suspension line of products during that time.

So because Team Integra is THE resource for information about the Integra, we need our articles to be up to date and be nothing less than perfect. So we will start from scratch again on the spring/coilover specs article so it will be completely accurate again and contain more information than ever before.

Current obligations keep me from having the time to get on the phone to all these companies again to get spring information so I'm calling on all of our members to submit what spring information they have so our article can be completely current and up-to-date to allow our other members to make an informed decision on what suspension would be best for them.

Submit your info into this post here (don't submit by PM, my box will be full in a day
). What we're looking for is:

Springs, sleeves, or true packaged coilover
Front drop height (in.) (adjustable range if coilovers)
Rear drop height (in.) (adjustable range if coilovers)
Front spring rate (lbs/in) (adjustable range if true coilovers)
Rear spring rate (lbs/in) (adjustable range if true coilovers)
Progressive or linear spring rate?

Specs for springs of all generations 1-4 of Integras are welcomed so post what you got here and of course your name will go in the article along with it. We'll make that spring spec article bigger and better than ever.

to make my contribution, i can confirm that the information regarding the Tokico Coilovers in the article is still correct, i know not many people have these, i only know of two people other that myslef on the board with them...

if i may suggest, the article just called them Tokico coilovers i believe, however their real name is the Illumina R Competition Coilover, since they use re-valved Illuminas as the shocks (more agressively valved than regular Illuminas, how much more i dont know)

My Nuespeed RACE springs are progressive. Did they change them recently?

Also, does anybody have specs on Skunk2's coilovers. I've emailed them and they said they had the same spring rates as stock.
Then I emailed them again, knowing that was wrong, and then they said 450F/350R.

If anyone could verify the spring rates, that would be great.

The Nuespeed Race springs are the same as the H&R's their progressively made but as soon as the car 's weight is on them they are linear.

Edit: the progressive coils totaly compress with the cars wieght.

I can't believe the tanabe gf210 springs have a softer spring rate than the nf210. I thought the gf210 are supposed to be the "grip" feeling springs while the nf210 springs are the "normal" feeling springs. I don't understand that at all.

Tanabe's website just gave some vague ranges for their springs. So i got the numbers that i posted from modacar's website -since they had numbers for integra specific 210 springs. Maybe they aren't accurate. I will e-mail tanabe. Because you are right Tanabe advertises the nf210 to be the softer of them. good eye.

[edit] ok i put up numbers from Tanabe -they should be accurate

a suggestion. i dont know if you will like it or anything... why not include pricing for each spring mentioned.. just so that when people come on here to look at what they may like they can have an idea of what its going to cost them...

Pricing is a good idea. It's always at least a bit of a factor when considering which is best for you. Although, the prices are different at different stores and change with time. Maybe we could give 3 price ranges and catagorize that way. i don't know.




BTW this thread, i belive, is only for valid spring or coilover specification information. To make it easy for people to compile a list or find what they are looking for quickly maybe we should relocate this side talk about individual results and purchases of certain springs. It's irrelevant to the task at hand.

BTW2 we probably still need quite a few specs. Cusco and Sprint are a couple that come to my mind at once.
