Hey all,

Does anyone know what the front and rear spring rates are for H&R Sport Springs? I have looked everywhere and cannot find what they are. My last resort is to call them to find out what the rates are as they don't have an email listed on their website.

Thanks!

TTercel, I bought my 02 type S in 08. The very first thing I did to it was put H&R Sport Springs on it because stock ride height is awkwardly high for a "sporty" hatch. I do not know their spring rate, but H&R has a high reputation. The problem I had is that I was looking for a mild drop, and they are rated as 1.4"F, 1.3"R which I thought sounded perfect. After installing them the front dropped more like 2", and the back 2.7". They were new and I verified the part numbers, so I couldn't explain it. But it was way too low for me, and the rear was significantly lower which looked awful. I then installed Tanabe GF210s rated at 1.3" drop and was happy for many years.
