HKS

I'd use HKS. They're a really nice company and they produce lovely products that really work and look cool and are ready off the shelf.

Gazmo

P.S. Did i mention they pay my wages too ??

To be honest, with springs I think they're all about the same (although don't quote me).

I've got a set of Trust DowMax springs and they are very nice, just the right amount of lowering.

Nismo

I've had Nismo ones put on my R33. Lowers the car about 2.5" and makes it a bit stiffer. Nismo come in two options - Hard and Bloody Hard. Don't go for the "Bloody Hard" ones or you'll have no teeth.

Just had the car lowered with the above, with good results, the car has become more user friendly in once sense.

Henry,
I can still stretch to a breakfast even though you and Mark were out last night drag racing my car, doing four wheel drifts at 140mph, doing handbrake turns and did sideswipe your gatepost after you had both had a skinfull down the dog and duck.
Question really is do I still need the 9bhp or will I cope anyway?

Ged,

It's OK, Mark gave me your car to run in.

I'd never dumped the clutch at 9,000rpm in reverse before - what a laugh that is.........! Its just a shame that the bodykit wasn't up to the off-roading we did in it.

Guy
