I'm wondering if any you guys ever heard about Vogtland Springs. I want to know if its any good or not. There is a company in California that is selling them through e-Bay. They are claiming these springs are better than Eibach and H & R springs. I'm trying to find out if there is anyone or someone you know that put the Vogtland Springs on there car.

What are the spring rates?

If the company can't tell you that, it's a pretty good idea that you should avoid these springs

Vogtland springs are VERY good springs. Used in NASCAR, IRL, and other racing leagues. They are not some new ricer fad They are a German company and make springs for many of the tuner cars over there.

I recently installed a set of Vogtland springs on my 1995 Acura Integra GS-R daily driver and was very impressed. The ride was barely affected and the handling is 100% better. Never seen them on an Impy but I am pleased with them on my Integra.

Hope that helps.

OK, so it's a reputable company. That's a plus.

Still would want to see the spring rates though....

I had never heard of them either and started doing some research. I seem to remember that their spring rates were listed on the product info sheet, although I am not 100% positive.

This may be an alternative to the Hotchkis springs I've been waiting on for OVER 3 months. Last I knew it sounded like the springs are stuck at CUSTOMS.... Maybe Hotchkis is shipping more than automotive parts to the U.S...

I emailed the Guy on Ebay to see how many sets of these he can get his hands on.. This may be a good alternative to stock/Eibach/Hotchkis springs.
