I'm deciding what mods to do on my new n.

Was wondering if I could lower it just a little bit with out ruining the adjustable dampening. I am coming from an 86 that I put coilovers on, so I get the appeal to coilovers over springs, but I like the ability to adjust the dampers. I care about looks and street performance, maybe a track day a year. I tried searching and didn't find anything, sorry if this has already been talked about.

I literally search springs and can't find anything about them accept some guy asking if a used one is on them. Super helpful.

Ya I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find anything about them and I really want to know the answer to your question because I am contemplating buying H&R lowering springs but I want to know if anyone has them on already and if it affected the ride quality and how well the active dampening still worked and if it affects the longevity or other suspension components

I just installed the H&Rs and from the research Ive made doesnt adversely affect the dampers..

So out of N mode and on the softest setting how does it ride?

If you modify the springs on the suspension you'll void the suspension portion of the warranty. The lowered springs will add to the stiffness and stiffness is controlled by the active suspension in the VN. Save you're money and purchase a Mando ESC Module.

What will that do ?

So you're saying to get a Mando unit along with lowering springs as a way to change the suspension a bit to help negate the stiffness from lower springs?
I’m actually interested in this idea as well. Of course the VN doesn’t need lowering springs but if you want to go lower and keep the adjustment feature it’s all you got. Just looking into lowering springs now myself and someone just posted a glowing review of the ark springs but they are $100 more then the rest of them. Lowering springs plus this electronic suspension adjuster Might just be the answer. Anyone done it yet?

That's my review and I have the ECS10 paired with the ARK springs. I haven't had a chance to really get the car on track due to the heat here in Texas (and covid) since installing the ECS10, but it does give great control over compression and rebound. I've messed with it some on autocross runs, but they're just too short to get a good idea of how the changes have had an affect.

I will say that the mando applications default "normal", "sport", "sport+" settings feel better than the ones that are in the car. I feel like the rebound settings of the stock programming is just too high, especially in the rear of the car.

The review of your ark GTS springs was that before or after the ECS10?

What size wheels are you running.. ? I am switching to Konig 19x8.5 wheels with a 45 offset. I was worried about rubbing. I know a similar application rubs a little with 35 offset. I am going to stretch and run the factory tire.

18x8 et50 245/40, but I'll be going to 18x8.5 next season and 255/35s and should have no issue. I'm also running -2.4f/-2.2r camber.
