Anyone have experience with B&G springs?

Postby lumbercis » Sat Jun 29, 2013 2:07 pm

Anyone have any reviews on these? http://www.sparktecmotorsports.com/bg-92-1-035.html

Spring rates?

I like these because they seem to have the least drop of any other springs I've seen. I'd actually prefer running something like OEM RC/CS springs but finding a set is about as likely as spotting a unicorn, so I'm stuck going with an aftermarket solution. I'm basically looking for stockish ride quality.

Let me know if you've run these and what you think.

Thanks

Is there any way to tell RC/CS springs apart from normal ones?

I've never seen a part number on springs themselves. You'd pretty much just have to know what car they came off of. RC/CS are different part numbers though according to toyodiy.com.

If you think you might have some (or even stock 92-93 springs) PM me.

Ok gotcha, I'll be keeping the ones I got off of my RC for backup, but I'm curious to know if they're the original springs or not.

I have them on my car right now, fairly comfortable, not exactly sure about the spring rates though :(, I have no issues with small potholes and such and its not so low that its scraping everything. The difference is pretty huge vs the normal springs if you ask me even though its just a 1 ish drop.

PS: I got stock springs sitting here, anyone want? lol

Any problems with hitting the bump stops? Are you running stock bump stops or cut down?

If anyone happens to have photos of their car on B&Gs please post them!

stock bump stops, and for the most part I dont hit it, only time I really notice it is when I'm on the freeway and I see those huge metal plates for construction or fairly large gap then I cringe.

I have to butterfly in my driveway cuz my curb is a tall hill :shrug:
