I run Intrax. I found them at the junk. They seem to work great but they do need a stiiffer strut to go with them. With stock struts your car will travel down the road like a pogo stick. <p>---------------------------------------------------------------------------<br>Proud owner 2000 Metro poor mans special edition, 1984 Suzuki SJ410 poor mans rockcrawler (needs turbo 1L), 1992 Ford Aerostar Cargo van(The big white piggy, needs more dents and scars), 1964 POS Baja VW (needs to be put back together).</p><i></i>

Intrax are OK, but Eibach and H&R are better. But I would say none are worth much unless you have the correct struts. Konis are a good choice.<br><br>Good luck, and remember a good stereo is worth much more than a sub $200 set of springs. (And thats the price when new) <p></p><i></i>

I do keep my eyes open for springs at the junk yard and will post in the buy/sell section if I find some. <p>---------------------------------------------------------------------------<br>Proud owner 2000 Metro poor mans special edition, 1984 Suzuki SJ410 poor mans rockcrawler (needs turbo 1L), 1992 Ford Aerostar Cargo van(The big white piggy, needs more dents and scars), 1964 POS Baja VW (needs to be put back together).</p><i></i>

i just put in the purple intrax springs on with 20w filled in the struts. i love this setup as the intrax are great for the street. they are not too stiff but are a definite upgrade from stock. as for the ride height, i think its perfect, there is about one finger gap all around with 185/60/14 tires. <p></p><i></i>

They are ok if you have the proper shocks like Konis.

jomo has since been banned. i doubt he reads any of this anymore, since he doesn't have a swift.

JOMO is still alive on UKswift!

He has a swift on his drive but the engine is knackered

He is trying to stick a starlet engine into it!

sorry guys, I read that forum from time to time and everytime I see more and more of his stupid posts ( like him trying to put a gas-acclerator cable next to a steering wheel)

I just got a set of used intrax springs. What do you mean by 20w filled struts? Do you know if kybgr2 gas filled struts will be stiff enough? What bolt on shocks can you recommend using with intrax springs?

The 20wt is Bel-Ray fork oil in his "Phonis".
