Default Megan Springs

Has anyone tried the Megan Springs?
http://www.meganracing.com/product.a...=1547&catid=46
I am looking for a slightly raked look and these seem to fit the bill. They claim to drop 1.5" in the front and 0.9 in the rear, but I've seen other springs not exactly deliver on their claims.

They are also the only aftermarket spring I have seen that claim to be progressive in the rear.
I know the F-Sport springs are progressive as well, but they do not publish their spring rates. I cannot seem to find stock spring rates either. Anyone have stock spring rates?

Thanks

I have these sitting in the garage. I don't recommend them cause they're very stiff but if you don't mind the stiff ride then it's a good spring. Let me know if you're interested. Would sell the for cheap.

Well, I already ordered them.....
Do you have any pictures of them installed?
Was the drop as advertised?
Did you switch to another spring or back to OEM?

Thanks

I have a couple thousand miles on the springs.
The fronts lowered 1-3/8" (1.375") on both sides. The driver's side was 3/16" lower before and after the install.

The rears lowered 13/16" (.8125) on the drivers side and 1-1/16" (1.0625") on the passenger side. The driver's side was 5/16" lower to start. After lowering, the driver and passenger are within 1/16" of each other.

Ride is firm, but so was stock. I can't tell much difference, but most of the roads I drive are pretty good. My wife drives the car as well, and didn't have any complaints. YMMV if you live up north where the roads are not as nice.

Overall, I am very pleased with the stance. Ride could be better, but I still think its pretty good for lowered compact with 45 series tire running 50 psi. Price was also tough to beat. $147 shipped.
