prodrive springs

I have seen scooby clinic advertising genuine prodrive lowering springs on ebay for 120 to fit bugeyes.
Just wondering if any one has these fitted and how they affect, the ride quality, the handling and the looks. I also wondered if a 1 inch lower is really that noticable and if i need to change the dampers or not.

Cheers Dan

Re: prodrive springs

i did have prodrive springs on my 04 sti (unitl the shocks failed for the 2nd time), were very good and helped with the handling. Make sure you get the alignment reset afte fitting the new springs.

You should get less body roll and less understeer with the prodrive lowering springs.

Eibach lowering springs will lower the front 1.3" and the rear 1"

Prodrive and Eibach are strut friendly when used with the OEM struts.

Re: prodrive springs

Prodrive settings should come with the springs, but the negative camber is 1.5 deg I thing. I had mine setup at Powerstation.
