Anyone got some pics of King Springs fitted to an Ignis Sport?

I read through some previous threads, but all the pictures have since disappeared. Anyone got pics to give an idea of the drop, and if anyone has them fitted give me a quick review ? :)

I cant really warrant spending $ on coilovers to get the drop im after.

Honestly just go to a mechanic for a quote. I takes me about an hour to do all four springs.

I ended up fitting some to mine ..... thanks for your help Redline :roll: #-o


For those who were wondering, below is a pictures of the drop the springs give. Spring rates are about 25% stiffer ... so although the ride's a fair bit bumpier on rubbish roads, cornering ability has certainly increased.

When I had them the rear was to harsh I went back to standard. What I really should have done is trim tbe bump stops.

Yep, the rear is a bit stiff ..... i'd read that rear bump stops needed to be chopped, but my suspension guy told me to leave them as is for a while and see how they go (leaving them as is will keep the oem shockers happy). ive had the springs in for nearlly a week and i reckon its hitting the bump stops on every big bump on the road that most cars would float straight over. I reckon those bump stops will be lopped down sooner than later by about 2cm, maybe even this weekend.

Your Ignis Sport looks awesome, Sp33dY. Those wheels really compliment the car and the ride height looks perfect.

Would of been good if the car came with the original wheels when i bought it .... *sigh*. The ROH wheels are ok though --- theyre the same ones as fitted to the current gen Swift RC2's or whatever they're called.


I ended up chopping the rear bump stops the other day, cos with the king spings in the rear only had about 10mm of travel before the bump stops hit the bottom spring perch. Rides a LOT better now, much like it did standard.

Until the shock valves give out from being semi-compressed.

Couldnt care less! Its a sacrifice im willing to make ... Some standard shocks last alot longer than others depending on the car and application, and driving style ... From all reports by others owners who've fitted lowered springs with the stock KYBs + cut bumpstops, they had no issues. By the time i need new shocks i'll be ready to upgrade anyway. 8)

You obviously don't realize how quickly shocks can root themselves when they are subjected to things they aren't intended for! Like cut bump stops...
Belive it or not bump stops are there for a reason, to stop the suspension from traveling futher than it is supposed to!
