        Will the J stocks at 450/600 be too stiff for the street (not tracketed, yet)? How much do they lower the car? What other mods are required to the Konis/suspension.

        Local shop recommended H&R Sports at 182/343 with 1”/.75” drop. Not sure...
        The HR sport/race aren't great as they are "progressive" and not much stiffer than factory. The off the shelf B8's and Konis aren't matched to the HR spring rate. Linear springs (i.e. J stock) are going to be better. Higher rate doesn't always = harsher ride. Many times the harsh ride can be attributed to soft springs mixed with aggressive dampers along with longer bump stops.

        Most people don't go through the trouble of matching everything up because at that stage they could just go coilover. But I have no intention of modifying my strut housing and enjoy reverting back to stock easily if needed.

          I'll bug him again in a week or two. I get the feeling he may be trying to hold out long enough to get the dampers but he's not a man of many words. At least not via email to some stranger (me).

            Turner's web site indicates the springs will ship Sept 13th.

                  Sorry for the delay I was out of country. The springs are ordered but he's still trying to work out a solution for the dampers. So that's a good start!

                    Yes! Thats great news! Thanks for making this happen.
                    Looks like Bilstein is getting it together regarding the dampers, I have seen a few sets hit shelves in the past week or so. Hopefully that will start to pan out.

                    Until then, this is the option
                    -----------------------------------------------
                    Hello,
                    We can do the re-valves but instead of matching spring rates please provide the percentage of change you require. i.e. add 15% to rebound and 5% to compression. Turnaround time is 6-8 weeks at this time.
                    Strut inserts $170.00ea
                    Shock non-adjustable $130.00ea
                    ------------------------------------------------

                    So for that to work, either we each do some "math" and send bilstein some info (would also need to know the existing valving), or get some guidance from the powers that be.

                          So just to confirm . . . the Bilstein B8's out of the box are valved for the J Stock springs, or do they need to be revalved to be compatible with the J Stocks?

                          I am asking because 1) I am slightly confused on this issue, and 2) looks like both the J Stock springs and the B8's are available on the TMS web site.

                              Can you post the link to order? The older link above shows up as NLA for me.

                                Answering my own question: Just spoke to Turner and they took them off the site until they get a firmer lead time from H&R. Sounds like early next year.
