Wrench Lowering springs!

Hey Guys! We are a Spring Manufacturing company in Baltimore, MD. We have had a few e-mail requests for the Saturn Vue Redline lowering springs. Currently we do not manufacture them but are looking for someone in the area or someone willing to let us test fit their Vue with a set of our springs. If this is something you or someone you know are interested in please feel free to email me at brandon.at.roadmagnet.com

THANK YOU!

your going to want 1.5 to 2 lower then redline height... its the onlyway the wheel gap is going to be taken care of and the car still will not be that low to the ground which is a good thing.

I agree nj, thats what i was looking for, i just hope that kind of drop wont require extensive suspension work. (extensive= anything more than a camber kit)

I doubt it'll slam it. Nitroussaturn slammed his but he did some major work to do it. Well be lucky if redlines get two inches without having to pretty much fab a new suspension.

Drop your car off "PLEASE" NJ FRR! lol This fender gap is killin' me. I've contacted just about everybody online & no one carries Lowering Springs for the Vue anymore. This might be our last hope!

Really 1"-1.5" would be a big difference without affecting the AWD ability of this SUV!!!! That amount of drop will make a noticeable difference visually....If you want to go lower then Airbags may be you best choice!

Actually 2" is not terribly noticeable unless you know the Vue really well. I have Sprint springs on mine which lower the Vue 2" and I get people asking me all the time why I don't lower it

My plan for mine is just to bag it so I can have no gap at all when it is parked.

3" would be a good drop for the Vue on lowering springs IMO. The only thing that I would worried about is not having adjustable struts/shocks for the Vue at that point to put on stiffer setting to avoid the tires hitting the fenders or quarter panels.

So yeah they never contacted me back. Id say just go with the Megan Racing springs that just came out. I got them and i couldnt be happier. 3" gap front and 3.8" rear gap with 245/45/18. Nice and stiff, minimal body roll and sexy lookin as hell.

I like the height of the Nitrous' setup but he had to cut coils to do that which I couldn't see doing but it would be more detrimental to the ride quality. But heck the ride quality on the Sprint setup wasn't all that great either so maybe it couldn't really get much worse than that
