    I can't say it's bouncier but you feel every pebble that much more

    Using a quality spring with minimal drop ride will probably be improved. Eibach and H&R are two quality springs that will give you an amazing ride, plus better handling and looks.

    I have used H&R, Eibach, Tanabe and tein springs in the past on various cars I built. On my supercharged integra, I used tanabe first, but found the ass end was too low for my liking, and I switched to eibach. I use them for my cars now! I am just waiting to get a set for my micra. I just got my new tires on...need to get my new black wheels and eibachs. Then on to some bracing! woo hoo...gonna be a fun summer.

    I now have the complete nismo micra cup 1st generation suspension brand new in the box but am hesitant about installing it considering my micras current use. I love the road kill straddling ability of the stock suspension

    I think the nismo springs are just the kyb sport r kit with nismo paint job. Not really made for everyday driving as too stiff.
