If you are looking to lower your VTurbo and don't want to spend the money (or have the need for the adjust-ability of coils) I would HIGHLY recommend these springs.

I have to admit, I was kind of skeptical of a spring that cost less than 200$. I am more than glad I decided to order these springs.

I have had a couple lowered cars in the past and I always loved the look and (usually) the feel of how they rode and handled. They also cost me upwards of 200$ which already puts the NGMs ahead.

I had Eibachs on my Tiburon and they were great but still a little soft.

I also had Eibachs (Sportlines) on my SRT-4 and they made the car look amazing and corner well but almost literally scared the shit out of you when you saw a bump coming.

The NGM springs are a PERFECT balance of value in every aspect. They look really nice... I mean, can you argue with the sexy car below... :p




They also ride really well. As stated in the description of them, I would agree that they are 18% stiffer than stock... yes.. 18%, not 20%. What this means is that you can expect less roll, more road feel (but not to much to make your butt pucker up) and great handling aspects which brings me to my next point.

Handling... the second biggest thing people care about when it comes to springs (you know most of you do it for the looks!) I think they handle GREAT! The limiting factor I feel on really hard corners or on mountain curves is now the tires and not the loss of grip due to the suspension roll and pulling up on a wheel. For any DD and weekend autoXer, I believe these springs will really get the job done.


I think the value on these springs is just plain awesome.. Between the low low cost, great handling aspects, combination of rode feel and ride comfort and how awesome it looks these springs just own. period..

Also want to give a big thanks to Mike from Importshark for making the transaction a great experience.

with the lowering springs, SRI, free flowing exhaust and the lighter wheels I haven't really noticed any increase in mpg but it probably has a lot to do with how I have been driving it.

When I got the car from the dealer totally stock, I was averaging about 34mpg (according to the computer @ 80mph cruise) We have a road trip to cali this weekend and I will be cruising around the same speed. I will update with the mpg after the trip.

ARK makes some really nice stuff, I just don't see the point in spending the extra money on springs if you don't need to.. I think the group buy is still going on for the NGMs which means 175$ shipped in the USA..

both springs have pretty much the same drop.

You won't find any aftermarket springs that are softer than stock springs.. the whole point is to make the car handle better and less roll, which means stiffer springs.

Sorry I phrase that wrong.

What I meant is which brand is less stiff NGM or ARK? and closest to stock.

I also have the NGM's on mine and I enjoy them a lot. Except for 1 spot on my daily drive where I slow'er down because if I hit this lip/uneven road full on at the 40mph speed limit my spine shakes and crumbles. My heart seriously stopped for a split second after I hit that thing for the first time. I now try to take an alternate route to and from work ;).

Good luck, they told me they had no idea when they would have them, so I just bought H&R. Their loss!

i wouldn't bother buying them. the set i had on my car was simply not stiff enough, and looked terrible after one winter.
