Legnum
is it ok to fit Galant (sedan) kingsprings in Legnum (Wagon)? would the spring rate make the rear seat lower than it meant to? Anyone experience or know?

2000vr-4: did u end up getting a set? how low did it drop your car? got any pic?

You should only put the leggy ones in a leggy as the rear is heavier ...

Followed this up with King Springs (presuming these are the same RPW sell) Response was:

KCFL-65 - 270 lb linear rate
KCRL-66 - 120 lb linear rate

So this is 4.82kg/mm Front, 2.14kg/mm rear.

Should be fine in a galant, but SURELY too soft for the wagon I would imagine.

Yeah I've got em on my leggie now, you wouldn't want to go any lower, especially with the 3" exhaust. My resonator is too fat and scrapes. Getting it changed for a thinner one. Other than that it looks mean and is comfortable.

that does look good, I'm concerned about the soft rear springs though. Load the car up and you'll be really low in the rear!

2.14kg/mm is pretty light on...

my rates are 8.7kg front, 7.2kg rear, and with the car not much lower than madhav's, my tyres would hit the guards over big bumps with no load in the back.

So is it just the springs you've changed. And how is the ride. Mel's Leggy has the coilovers with the 17's on it and I've got the factory setup on mine and I like the ride on mine heaps more than hers. Although the handling on Mel's is better than mine.

Just a set of King Lows should be sweet yeah? Would I need to change the shocks or anything?

I got King Lows on my Liberty, but didn't need to change anything else!

With just the springs, you'd be asking for trouble I think. Most of these cars are 60,000+ kms now, and shocks are generally only good for around 60-70k. If you only add springs first time around, you'd be up for new shocks reasonably soon anyway I would imagine. Do it once and do it properly I would suggest.

Hence why coilovers will be the cheaper option once youve added the cost of springs and new shocks. You can also specify your exact ride height, raise it up if you get to much heat from da powlice and control firmness.

Would you mind measurng the Hub to Guard height for me - front and rear?
Also, have you tried loading up the car yet to see what effect this has on how the rear sits?
