Coil Spring Rates and Wheel setups

Postby logmanQ45 » Wed Jun 16, 2021 3:20 pm

Hey guys,
Thinking of getting some BC racing coils for my y33. Just was wondering what spring rates you guys are sporting and if you would go higher or lower. Also any advice or additional parts I'll need to get (I got with spindles) IE swift springs, extreme low, additional bearings Ill have to change out.

Also looking for wheel setups, just something to fill out the wheel well a bit. Feel free to post pics and let me know if you had to get adaptors or hub centering rings.

Thanks :)

I'd recommend starting off with the supplied springs. No sense buying something you won't need, and on coilovers, the spring rate is typically matched to the dampers (in consideration of the weight of the car they're intended for).

No pics here, but on a 99, 18's look good, 19 would be the biggest I'd go before you start sacrificing ride quality. Also, make sure you select tires such that the overall diameter matches the OE overall diameter.
