Better handling, less body roll. Add some sways and now we are talking.

Get some lowering springs and drop it! If anything it will start to sag around 20k miles and by then you should have saved some money to get some real coilovers lol.

I can't seem to make up my mind between the Swifts or the Works lowering springs.



I've ruled out the Eibachs and the rest because the drop is too great (more than 1.4" in front).

I've read though that the Swift springs make the Evo X pretty close to 50/50 on the weight distribution.

not really... Lower springs can actually make the car handle worse. They truly are for looks only. Not to mention the added abuse to your suspension.

I'll have to agree with ddawg...If you wanna just put springs/coilovers on your car, make sure you have the rest of the suspension parts covered. Sway bars, Camber adjuster, etc... And of course make sure you get your car aligned properly...Then It'll be worth it

IMO if your thinking of going springs go either swift or works bc of the subtle drops. i went with the works for that reason and they also keep the stock front rake angle. i had a slammed car before and i hated having to worry what road or drive way to avoid.

the works springs has its pros: looks, comfort (rides like stock) and price. but also has its cons (in my experience): a bit more roll, slight bump steer on bad roads, not being able to hit a twisty road as fast and having the rear end break loose more easily.

i plan on adding whiteline's roll center/bumpsteer adjustment kits and hope it cures some if not all of those cons. and as soon as bilstein releases theire HD struts ill get those too, but for now the springs will do.
