If I have the perf suspension upgrade on my V can I install the H&R spring kit with no issues or would I need to do all the other modifications that I have read about on the forum?

The "perf susp upgrade" (FG2) doesn't matter, you'll need to do something about the rear shocks. WildWhl solution or different rear shocks.

Good news is Tirerack finally shows availabilty of the H&R springs as 12/02 :thumbsup:

...or not...

Just called H&R... springs are out of R&D and are being manufactured right now (germany facility)... they should be available "right after the new year".

Take that for what it's worth... that's the 4th or 5th time H&R has said "they'll be available in a few weeks" over the last year.

so, if I was to buy H&R springs in order to make it work I would have to purchase stock CTS shocks? Is this correct? I have no desire to cut anything.

Yes, you would have to replace the rear shocks for sport CTS shocks.

Yes, that will work, but the CTS shocks are too soft for the V, and it'll handle like crap (HMO). Wildwhl makes bushings that allow you to keep the shock V shocks... with the H&R springs, there is nothing to cut.

See this thread, esp. odysseus' post:

Does anyone know how the H&R's will compare to the stock springs? I understand the Eibach's are not as strong....

This is great news, if its true. And the spring rate increase is very welcome...progressive sucks, but I'll take it as I can get it.

I'm going to wait and see if for once H&R can back up their word with these springs they've promised us for so long. I can wait till January. If they don't have them out by April, I will blow the cash on a set of Mallet coilovers.:banghead:
