Red face M2C with Swift Spec R installed.

For those who like linear springs. I installed M4(F82) swift Spec R lowering springs. No modification. Plug and play.

I am a huge fan of swift product. My multiple F8X had great road and hard core track character. 2:10 at the Glen with just Swift Toyo and Pagid.

Ride quality is just like any M3/4

If you need to ask how hard they ride itís not for you.

Enjoy.

The car stands nice.
What is the drop? Is your front bumper scratching more? Are they helping with body roll? Are you running factory tire sizes?

Mine is lowered maybe 1/2" more than his and I've not come close to scraping once, so I doubt his scrapes.

I have TC Kline camber plates that raises the front around 1/2 inches, I still scrape downhill. It could be body roll or dip.

You're 1/2" higher than OEM height and scrape? Am I understanding correctly?

This is the first time I'm seeing Swifts sitting higher than Eibachs.

My M2c sits lower on eibachs though it does ride pretty close to stock. Not sure how it's going to handle the winter with very little ground clearance.

I ran the swifts on my E92 but the shocks gave out within 1.5 years. Loved the linear springs otherwise.

190hpkilla Car looks great. Any way you could provide an update your thoughts 6 months later? Thoughts on ride during daily and performance on track? Any updated pics after settling? Thx!

Ride is still as expected. NYC roads and winter with no issues. The springs have settled and look even better. Handling perspective is on point. From my butt dyno the spring rate is matched perfect.
