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 [img]smile.gif[/img]

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.
