Default ST Lowering Springs

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ST-Suspensio...ht_2752wt_1404

So I just bought these on ebay for $100 and I was wondering if anyone on this forum has used them or knows someone that has used them. I've read around on the brand they seem to be reputable, If anyone has pics of before and after I'd be super grateful. If anyone has experience with these I got a few questions, hows the ride is it stiff or bouncy? Is 1.4" a noticeable drop? How was the wear on stock struts? Any input would be great, thanks guys!

These springs are probably temporary for me until I can save up the cash for ground controls, I just couldn't pass up what seems like an unbeatable deal.

I haven't heard of them before but i'm sure someone here might have. 1.4 inches should be noticeable, not drastic but noticeable. For $100 bucks, can't complain. Let us know what the results are.

Never heard of them either but if you do get them buy a set of konis and save yourself the head ache, stock struts are only good up to bout a 1.1 drop or less, anything else u risk blowing them quick n be paying or doin double the work

+1 on this....you either need lowering struts such as koni's or you might try using extended top hats, but even then the money is better spent on the struts themselves.

I have been running Suspension Techniques "sport-tech" lowering springs on my G1 for years now and have had no problems, they are good quality springs as far as I am concerned.

I was planning on buying them when the struts blow out, probably with ground control coilovers

Thats good to hear, do they ride nice? are you riding on stock struts?


I'll be sure to take pics, I can't help but to take pics all the time. I just love the way legends look and always thought it'd look sexier lowered. I'm definetly pretty excited!

The ride is defiantly bearable, even with the stiff absorber extension/compression of the Tokico blues I am currently running.

P.S. The springs may not be green when you receive them. Mine were grey.

BAWWWW

The thought did cross my mind that they may not come in green, but I thought it'd be kinda cool lookin. But I'm not too upset lol, did you ever run them on the stock strut? How do you feel about the drop? Do you wish you could've just gotten that extra .5"? I was thinking about a 2" drop, but I just don't have the money to buy the coilover sleeves gotta save up. I couldn't even find springs that would get me that low and the prices for them were astronomical!

Thanks for all the input everybody, I've been a lurker on this forum for the past 2 months. I've learned a lot of things I didn't know about legends since then, Even had a few questions I had in mind answered without even asking by browsing. Definetly a plus to have a forum dedicated to your car that actually helps you out when you need it! Just thought I'd say it seems that most people on this forum are pretty knowledgeable and willing to help.

EDIT:
I just saw your sig and noticed that your g1 is in there, looks like a larger drop that 1.5"/1.4". Is it because of your rim/tire size?

No I never ran them on a stock strut always have been on the Tokicos'.

I am alright with the drop I like where it currently sits.

Naw, I think the drop is just right, but I am not sure how it will look on your G2.

The Drop in my sig was back when I was running some sh*tty Integra/civic coilovers.
This is what the drop looks like with the ST springs on my G1.
