Hi,
I've did some research, but i'm still a little confused. My wife has a 2001 G20t. I have a set KYB GR-2 shocks here ready to install. What would be the nicest spring for those shocks? I would like a "slight" drop, but still maintain the stock riding comfort.

Tein S-Techs. that's EXACTLY what they're made for. look in the For Sale section, or post a WTB thread.

Thanks. I was leaning towards the S-Tech, but it says 1.8" drop in the front and .8" drop in the back. Seems a like a big drop in the front. Does it really drop that much?

seems more like 1.5"ish. my H&R sports said 1.5", but looked lower then most S-Tech drops i've seen. that's after mine settled in though...

Being a married guy myself I have to ask. Did your wife ask you to drop the suspension? If not, you are wasting your money and time. Odds are she will not like the resultant stiff ride. And trust me the ride will be uncomfortable for her. You cannot do any kind of a drop and maintain the factory ride comfort.

Thanks guys.
I guess i will keep the stock springs with KYB GR-2 shocks. Should I replace anything else while replacing the shocks? I just put a set of 17" Spec V wheels on her car, but the car definately looks taller now.

tein s tech springs are pretty close to stock. as long as you cut the bump stops its a very comfortable ride.

It's not the diameter of the wheel that counts, it's the diameter of the tire. You need to try and stay within the same tire diameter as the stock tire. You should be somewhere around 24 to 24.5 inches in diameter.
What size tires did you put on?

actually the 195/65s that come on most P11 G20s are 25" diameter, but i wouldnt try to go bigger than that as the 3rd link almost touches the tire at that diameter. Tein S-techs ride rough? if mounted right from what everyone else has said they ride is almost the same as stock..
I also planed to go this route and was concerned about more drop than i wanted. I decided that when I do it im going to cut some doughnuts out of tire tread and use them at the upper spring perch to fatten up the spring isolators. that should take it to the 1" drop I'm looking for

True the 195/65-15 tire is close to 25 inches, but the 205/50/16 on the 2002 Sport is 24.1 inches in diameter. Here is a link that will calculate the tire size for you.
