Jazz vs. Fit lowering springs
« on: August 17, 2012, 10:06:12 PM »
Hi H lovers,

Peter kindly helped me with the information about the factory ride height between ordinary and Sport Jazz - no difference. TNX again! :)

Now I wonder if lowering springs for FIT also fits to our JAZZ? I have Jazz 1.4 Sport GD1 07/'07. I'm about to buy some but... not sure.

Tein S.Tech

or

Skunk2

If not than I can only go for APEX or V-MAXX with -35 mm.

Looking for something bit lower than -30 mm (Eibach Pro Kit,...)

THANK YOU!

I have some skunk2 springs kicking around. Be warned, the US and JDM fits have shorter front struts, giving you a bigger drop at the front. UK jazz's don't lower evenly with any aftermarket spring.

Kicking around... FOR SALE?! :)

But how come Jazz don't lower evenly with any AM springs if they are all four let's say -30 mm? Than it means that it's not even on factory springs... Hmm?

TNX!

The UK jazz's are higher at the front on the standard shocks. All the lowering kits lower all the shocks but don't compensate for that extra height at the front.

I'll PM you about the springs :)

I know it's an old thread but anyone fitted the Tein S.Tech on a UK jazz?

Save your money and invest in best tyres  you can afford. Modifying a town car in not worthwhile. Take a look how US Fit owners spend the dollars over on Fitfreak.net.
