Funny, I was thinking about reaching out to them the other day. I LOVED my swift springs on my 370z. They rode more comfortable than stock suspension and offered much more control in the corners. They had an excellent progressive spring rate and I felt much more confident driving the Swifts hard than my coilover setup. Same story on my friends Evo IX.
My Eibachs on the SS are ok, but the ride is so-so and I wish the front was a tad lower. Did they mention any specifics?
I would be very interested in a set of Spec-R springs @ $400 or less with a better drop than the Eibachs, maybe 1.4F 1.3R to keep a raked look and still set them apart from the drop heights on King springs?
I'm guessing it'll just be the Sport springs, not the Spec R. Also when you say better drop as in lower/higher ride height or spring rates?
King springs also have lots of different height difference
I have not approached them myself yet, would like to talk to them, and definitely give them our input
First I've heard/read about Swift Springs. I've always wanted a set springs that lowers the ride by a mere 1-inch. I tend to drink coffee when I drive, so I prefer hot to stain the headliner. Based on the ratio posted by boost_lee perhaps 1.0"F x 3/4"R.
Currently, I guess the Street - Sport Springs is the less aggressive option. In any event; yes, I would be interested, but I have no point of reference as to cost.
Well both eibach and king are around the $300 range...
what experience does Swift have in US/AUS cars/suspensions/geometry? There website shows predominantly Honda/Acura/Toyota/Lexus. price points mean nothing if legit R&D is not going into the spring design. Most of the current market provides a few options for springs that lower 1" or more, there might be more interest in springs that only lower .5" for everyone else. The springs would also need to accommodate MRC and non-MRC cars while not altering the shocks abilities.
I'm not a suspension expert, but I'd assume car is still a car regardless of the origin. As long as they can study the car, something should be able to be done. And yes they are predominantly branded for Japanese cars as that's their root. At the same time they have private labeled for many companies that are in the USDM car scene
I'd also just like them to make the springs specifically for the 2015+ MRC cars, as 14 has their options already. 15+ consist of a bigger market. Also because that's what I have lol
