    jic's are nice coils, yes they do tend to be fairly stiff.. but i will say those are better then stance. the stances are a nice entry level coilover but that is what they are, entry level. those jic's are a better quality coil, i would buy those over the stances.

    That particular model of JIC coilovers are pretty old. The new ones have purple springs are are better valved. those run really stiff and blow like a powdered up coke whore allday long and theres not really any place to get them rebuilt because theyre the old model.

    Read this. The following 2 sections also cover dampers and springs iirc.

    He says that the springs on JIC coils are some of the least consistent that he tested. This is one person's data, but he seems to be pretty legit. There is a lot of decent info on there.

    Read more, buy once = spend less overall.

    in my experience when drifting... ESPECIALY with suspension parts. if you go cheap you are gonna regret it. lean towards silk road which i use and are my personal fav HKS. stance. stuff like that. it will ride better... last longer.. and give more aggressive settings. stay AWAY from the k sport type of crap.

    DONT FAKE THE FUNK

    good luck buddy cheers!
