    i got king springs on stock shocks and they feel fine pretty much the same as stock (actually IMO i couldnt tell the difference, even a bit better round the twisties). I think its just compared to other springs out there such as Eibach etc which really excel past stock springs handling wise, king springs arent as good.

    they seem aight on my car, did a twistie run with them on....dunno if it was the new tyres or rims but i didn't feel as in control of the car as normal (dunno if that explains it????) anyway they weren't an improvement but if your just after a lower car they'll do fine.
    upto 40% boost (as if in a dream)
    and guys such as benji over here he loves it soo much yum yum like bubblegum he likes it in the bum.

    The way to get a good ride and good handling is to have springs that are matched to your shock's dampening rate...

    I use to have Kings on my 3rd gen, previous owner had them, i like them .. but because of living in the hills... lower the car... more money you spend on dead exhausts *cries*

    But as everyone as said, if you need some ok springs to drop a little, they work

    im selling them if anyone is interested >.<
