I saved the OEM springs in case I want to go back to the original, less bouncy ride.
is it dramatically different? probably hard to quantify.
Actually, the front isn't noticeably different. The back is where I notice a huge difference. The OEM springs for the back are much whimpier (thinner coil stock) than the front springs. But the new set were the same front and back. A good bump will lift you off of your seat. Before I would be lifted only half off my seat.:-)
At the front of the front tires, measured at 45 deg from the ground the distance between center groove is 58 1/16. At the back of the front tires, 30 deg up from the ground (cant get any higher) is 58 1/4. So there appears to ba s slight toe in. Not sure what the acceptable range is. Doesn't seem too bad. I will keep an eye on the tread wear. Can't be that bad because today on my trip to home depot, about 28 mile RT, the superMID said 55.8 MPG.:-)
Get a laser level and slap it against the side walls of each tire and see where the laser beam converges - I think about 300-500 feet is about as much toe in as you would want - 1000 feet intersection is about 1 degree - if the beam diverges from each side you have toe out - which is really bad as I found out!
Haha, they were free to me, so no worries. Shortly after I got them I realized I could've sold them and made back the 100 I spent on everything, but I figure if I get a 600 dollar discount I can pass a 160 dollar discount on to someone that's helped me out a lot.
I still need to put my front illuminas on, I've been so busy, sadly. I'll have silly drop after I do, can't wait!
