These have completely transformed my 2002 Arizona which had done 63000 miles on the original suspension. I fitted at the same time 15x7 et20 wheels on 195 15 50 continental premium contact 5 tyres and had a 4-wheel alignment.
Firstly the appearance: can't believe how good the car looks just that little bit lower. The rear especially looks so much better flatter to the ground and with the wheels filling the arches properly. Obviously the wider wheels and lower offset contribute but the car looks so much wider and sportier. I love how the car looks now!
Secondly, the ride and handling: wow! This surely is how the car should always have handled. It feels so natural, so responsive and balanced. Squat, roll and pitch have totally gone. So it's not just improved the corners, but acceleration and stopping. And the ride has not been compromised. If anything, I prefer the way it goes over bumps and humps now. Feels like it is dealing with them in a much sharper way, but no harsher.
Everyday practicality seems totally fine too so far. I suspect I may have to buy extensions for my car ramps and definitely a lower access jack but it goes over speed bumps no probs.
In conclusion, I couldn't recommend these springs more. Of course, the extra width of the wheels, the subsequent lower profile of the tyres and the 4 wheel alignment have all contributed to the astonishing improvement in looks and handling, but to be honest, I wouldn't have lowered the car without these other upgrades too. They all work together to produce an incredible driving experience.
