Just got the h&r springs and 22's on my personal 300c this weekend, it is the first time we have used the h&r springs. All I can say is it is REALLY low, and the tires are tucked in the rear, however I have yet to have it rub even with 4 people in the car.

With two fatsos in the back, does it ride even lower? Or do the shocks self-level?

BTW, did you have to roll either the fr or rear (or both) fender lips?

Seems to have an opposite rake from what the Eibachs give you. e.g. Eibachs leave you higher in the back and it appears the H&R's leave you higher in the front. Any concern of the back settling even further?

Ya in that pic the car looks like its sitting low in the rear and higher from the front. I think it looks worst then the eibach setup.

I think it appears this way if you look at the wheel wells, but if you look at the beltline it appears to be level. Looks like a risky setup for 22's, which I'm not fond of anyway, but I'd love to know how it would work out with 20's... or even the stock 18's. Thanks for the pics kt, I didn't think I'd like the black wheels on silver, but I must say it looks great!

i likes it! i bought the setup from sprint springs, and they offer the same numbers as the h&r's. hopefully my car will come out the same way.

The wheels are the american racing RTS in glossy black, they dont have fake bolts but rather just little round marks. I love the black / silver look and let me tell you people flip out over this thing, young and old alike stare like crazy.

As for the h&r's the ride with them is worse than I expected, it makes the car pretty damn bouncey. The back is a touch lower than I would like it, but it looks so mean in person, every time I drive it I think to myself I need to pull the springs off and go a diffrent route, then I drive by a window and see the reflection of the car and change my mind :D .

That thing sits way too low in the back. It will definetely give you problems
and further no one can sit in the back. The Eibach kit is the way to go. Just
put a couple of boxes that weigh about 50 pounds each in your trunk and the
car sits just awesome. This set up is just terrible love the rims though.

Actually the back dosent run at all, no rolled lips nothing. I guess it has to do with the perfect offset of wheel and tire size combo. I drove around all weekend with 4 adults in the car and not a single rub in the rear. I had the front rub once when I was turning sharp going up a curb into a drive way.

I just wish the thing rode better, it rides like crap.

Hi All!! Just wanted to let you know that JonW is right that the Eibach's leave the rear higher than the front by more than any margin I've ever seen on any of my show cars. I couldn't have that so my neighbor who installed them heated the rears until they dropped to match the front. Way easy and way cool!! >:) Best Regards!! Mike

How come the pics that shoreline motoring posted of h&r springs don't show the car sitting that low in the rear? the 300c that shoreline posted looks perfect. this looks too low in the rear.
