Nisstech's lift spacer stiffens things up pretty well for about the same price and much better looks.

It's been about 3 months and 5,000 miles (with a few road trips). Still looks brand new. Will update after a bit. This though is for the front suspension setup I bought from them. I don't have anything on the rear from them.

I looked at those, but landed on the SumoCoils as I did not want a lift, and spacers aren't really a handling upgrade. They aren't progressive like SumoCoils (or even a timbren bumpstop) so I don't get how a spacer would enhance handling.

Hey iamamused, came across this post and Im interested, do you still use them, how are these doing after 17 months? Do you know if I am going to be able to use the same model considering I have 1.5" coil spacer at the top?

Thanks man
Ramiro

Yes I still use them. They have held up well, through 2 new england winters. I'm still happy with them and would recommend them as a good, cost effective way, to stiffen your coils. I actually bought a second fun car, and rather than change the entire suspension will be adding the sumo coils to all 4 corners (and some new shocks).

I would think that a spacer wouldn't make a difference since you are still on the same stock coils. The same model I bought should work. You could always email the guys at Super Springs just to check, they were great to deal with.

Thanks for your input! Have you had to replace any of the zip ties so far?

They've been fine. They are pretty beefy.

Resurrecting an old Post here. Just got the same sumo coils for my 2nd gen. Was wondering how you got these on so easily?? I was at it for a few hours and couldn't get them completely on. Also did you have to trim them at all? It looks like they overlap quite a bit supposedly anything over an inch of overlap needs to be trimmed. I know it's been a few years since you slapped these on but any help is greatly appreciated 👍

Following, anyone else have these??
I have considered them as I have the sumo rear bump stops and have been happy with them. The ride loaded is much better, a difference you can feel and notice.

Wondering if that is the same for the front coil springs.
