    Arrow spring feedback

    Ok, so i've narrowed it down to either sprint 2.25" drop springs, or Sup. Tech 2/1.9" drop springs. I'll be installing a fresh set of Tokico's w/them. What i want to know is if anyone has used either spring, how their ride was, settling issues, spring quality, and anything else they can think of. I know the tokico's are not stiff enough for them in all reality, but since I rode with tokico's and my DZ coilovers, either of these spring sets should be an improvement in ride quality as they are around 1/2 as stiff as the DZ's. So please, let me know

    Ok, I installed my Sprint springs and they are way better than the dz coilovers.... Ride is good, handle pretty close to the coilovers...

    What would you like pics of? Ride height & the actual spring installed? I'm running them on factory struts right now. I was gonna wait till spring to install them on a fresh set of Tokico's but I couldn't wait to try em out. I will try and get pics this weekend when I have the wheels off to deal with my UCA's.

    Re: spring feedback

    Well, since I don't have a digi cam, it's hard to get pics. i am getting one for X-mass and that is not far away so I should be able to get some pics soon after. I can say that these sprint springs ride really nice even with the factory 215k mile struts in there. I can't wait till spring to get some tokico's in there with them. On a side note, ever since i replaced the springs, I have this weird noise on my drivers side rear. I've checked and rechecked all the bolts and bushings. All are good and tight. I also checked the upper ball joint, I can't feel a bit of play in it at all. The only way I can describe the sound is kinda what popcorn popping in a coffee can would sound like. Doesn't make the sound over bumps, but rather just when I am driving on pretty smooth roads, and also more so when it's cold. Any thoughts?

    Did you put rear uppers on with poly bushings? Mine squeek pretty good and damn bad when its cold out like last night. Sounds like styrofoam or some thing.
