Default Ordered everything but springs!

So i figured everything out and my first autocross event ever is at the end of this month.

I'm looking at koni inserts, a subarugenuineparts.com 20mm rear sway and now lowering springs.

This is for my 2006 saab 92x 2.5i and needless to say its my daily driver.


Anyone running epic engineering lowering springs on their vehicle? I'm thinking the progressive spring rate may be beneficial to having a lower/stiffer car (benefits of everyday aesthetics of closing that wheel gap and the progressive spring rates comfortability). Are epics purely about improving aesthetics and comfortability but with minimal performance? Or are they worth a chance in something like a stock SCCA autocross event?

If this is your first ever autocross, don't do any mods. Just take the car out and learn how to drive it as it is. I'm not saying that any of those parts are good or bad, but I am saying they aren't going to make ANY difference to you at your first, or even your first few events.

You also need to pay attention to the rules when you do mods. The lowering springs will take you out of stock class.

Keep the car stock for your first season and figuer out what SCCA class you want to build the car for.
