Are they the same or is one of them lower? From what I hear, they are one in the same and the rear springs are what's different.


also.. intrax rears vs. ST rears.. which is lower.. which is stiffer.. I have intrax rears in there now but I'm getting probably ST fronts and want to know if I should stick with the intrax in the rear or move to ST's all around

i think the intrax is progressive but I'm not sure if the ST's are progressive or constant.. I also believe the intrax is a 1.8" drop vs ST's 2" drop

I would wait to see how your car sits / rides with the new front springs and go from there. You don't want to end up with a "nose up" stance

i'll leave the nose up stance for the guys with bags.. my car is already lowered but i'm changing the springs on it all around because up front i have stock springs and drop spindles so it rides comfortable but I want it to feel a bit more firm. The back already has intrax springs. Anyways i think you're right that ST and Sprint fronts are the same but the rear springs are different

Dropped springs (especially the ST, Sprint, or Intrax) + dropped spindles = trouble. Good luck with it; I doubt you'll be too pleased with the results.

NO WAY would I run spindles with anything shorter than impala springs. I'm going back to stock spindles and then putting the springs on.
