The question that I have is what springs are better, The Jamex or the Intrax lowering springs. I have an 89 spg which is already lower than the stock 900. When they say that the springs will lower the car 1.7, is this from a stock 900 or the spg?

Thanks, Your a great bunch,

I am getting intrax springs with 205/45-16 tires. I believe, because they advertise the springs for all c900 turbo, that it would lower a regular turbo 1.7".

Thanks Saabeh,

Is the SPG lower than the regular turbo to start? if so by how much? How do these springs compair to the SPG springs for ride?

My vote is intrax! I used them for 4+ years & I was VERY impresed!! EXCELLENT ride & equally improved handling :)

With the proper shocks the ride will be MUCH better then the OEM SPG springs

Your SPG springs I beleive ar .5 to .75 in lower then 900t springs

87 and later SPGs are lower than a standard 900 especially in the front, they have the SAAB roadhandling kit...intrax will drop an SPG about 1/2" in the front, they handle slightly better, and ride a lot harsher, but I like themhttp://myspace-143.vo.llnwd.net/00272/34/13/272853143_l.jpg

excuse my I mean a little harsher, alot harsh than a 900 900s or plain turbo
, plus I do have bilstein sports, 55 series, v rated tires....may be a few of the reasons it rides hard (but handles AWESOME):cool:
