Yeah I'm pretty lazy... It's late and I'm about to goto bed. I'm sick of these Jamex Springs... SOOOO... I'm looking for a 1.5inch drop and the Highest Rate Linear spring I can find. That's the only thing keeping me from the H&R's is that they are progressive rate springs. I want something stiff like H&R's highest rate but in linear fashion. If Anyone knows please give me the 411. Thx.

okay apparently we missed the LINEAR rate spring. not Progressive rate. If I'm going progressive I'll go with H&R's. And I'm 2 inch dropped right now and I scrape almost everything on my exhaust.

If you want stif then Intrax is what you want. The fronts are progressive but dont feel like progressive springs. They are about 1.5" in the front and 2" in the rear. To fix that add a set of Poly insulators on the bottom. That will level the ride out.
If you want linear only then you want to go with Suspension techniques they are 1.5' all around problem is that they changed manufacturers and I dont think you get the same as they used to be. Ebay sells them but they are different then the originals. The real Suspension Technique springs I think are unavailable.
I tried buying them about a year and a half ago.
Pics of the ride are below with Intrax are below.

Ill pass on H&R and Eibachs they are too bouncy for my taste.

To add Jamex advertised 2" but as they settled you get to about 2.5" I am sure someone here will pick them up. I was looking for them when I was changing from ST springs

yes my Jamex are way too low. I scrape everything right now LOL. And I hate the ride quality. Damn things float down the interstate but if you get into a hard corner they stiffen pretty damn good. I chickened out before the car started given out

I say go for SC springs with one coil cut off. That will stiffen them up quite a bit, and you get the linear spring you are looking for.

DO NOT go Intrax if you plan on ever running bigger tires in the back!! It is just to much drop. Since I put my 18x10 wheels on the back with 285/40 nittos, I have had major rubbing issues. I think I pretty much have them resolved but it took a little work.

With my Intrax springs, I've rolled my fenders, installed air bags, and installed polyeurethane spring cups.

With my 8" wheels and smaller tires, I was okay but not with this setup. I definitly wish I had springs with less drop such as Eibach or something.
