rear ST165 lowering springs on ST185

Postby toronto4wd » Fri Oct 15, 2004 10:33 am

Would a pair of APEX(not Apexi) springs from a 165 fit on the rear of a 185? I have a set of Apexi for the front that came with my clip that I am installing with a 1 inch drop and have a set of APEX from a 165 with a 1.5 drop. My car has always had a bit of a sloped look to it (being front heavy) and i'm wondering if the lower height would hurt the rear or give the car the leveled look I'm going for.

I remember on the old board, someone said that rear (stock) springs from ST185 lower ST165 by 1 inch.. If that's true, putting ST165 spring should lift ST185 up.

They will fit.

The lengths, lowering values, and weights of the cars are different. So you won't know how much it will lower until they are in. Luckily rear springs are pretty easy to swap out so its worth a shot.

I've decided to wait till spring and do it right. Anyone need a pair of front Apexi springs?
