hey everyone, i just got rims and tires on my box (rims are 17 x 7, +40 off set; tires 215/40/17) - i will post pics soon... anyway, what is the difference between the Tanabe DF210 and the NF210?

Which is the best spring to use between the two tanabes and goldline and Tein? i dont want to drop it an 1" (whats the point) but i dont want to drop it too low (expecting new baby in couple of months)... i have about 4 fingers gap between the fender and tire, want it about 2 finger gap...

what size spacer do i need for that off set (10mm, 15mm, 20mm)?

please help, cant spend too much and cant waste the money with the baby coming soon...

Thank you all in advance...

This is straight off the Tanabe-USA website:

The DF210 coil spring offers a large drop, while retaining superb ride quality characteristics. The spring rate is raised 10-15% to compensate for the shortened amount of suspension travel, without over stiffening the spring rate and affecting ride quality and shock lifespan.

The DF210 is unique in that it provides an excellent range of benefits, from it's extremely low stance, to performance and comfort. Overall, the DF210 is extremely well balanced for those looking to lower their car, increase handling potential, and comfort.

For those who want the lowest drop.
_______________________________________

The NF210 coil spring features a tasteful drop, and produces the best overall ride quality and comfort for a performance lowering spring. The lowered stance of the NF210 gives the car an elegant pose, while the spring rates, which are only slightly raised (up to 5% over stock) retain factory ride quality settings.

This coil spring is extremely popular with luxury tuned vehicles, as well as those with larger diameter wheels that want to eliminate fender gap, but maintain excellent driveability while reducing the risk of damage to wheels that is associated with stiffer suspensions.

Comfort especially important on daily driven vehicles, and their passengers. The NF210 provides the best driving experience for all types of roads.


For those who demand the best comfort from a lowering spring.

Thanks Down4Action1... i read that before but i guess what i meant was that which do you guys think is a better spring for the box, and which one you guys will use more (i know everyone been saying the df210)...

Well, I'm currently running Goldlines (2" drop), however I've been seriously considering the DF210's 'cause I want to go a bit lower. Still deciding at this point though.......

But to answer your question, I like the Goldlines!

Sorry I guess I misunderstood the question! If I had to choose between the 2 I would go for the DF210's. I always say why spend your money on something that wont make a noticable difference in your car? Before I got my airrunner set up I was running the Tein S-Techson 19" rims. they have a 1.5" drop and you wont sacrifice the ride! i have 2 young kids and it didnt bother them one bit! Im sure what ever decision you make will be the right one for you! Good luck and dont forget to post some pics of the final outcome!
