I have 12/6 on my Type 1s and I'd consider them not stiff at all. It's mainly because the valving of these coils isnt that great, but its decent.

If I could, Id go 14/10

You're not considering the difference of an ERS spring vs. the standard coil springs on regular Type One & Type Two. The valving behind a Type one is designed to be comfortable. If you were looking for a more aggressive ride option, you should of invested in type Two's and you wouldn't feel the same. I regular Type Two's as mentioned - everyone who rides in my car feels they're way stiff; a lot stiffer than stock without a doubt.

The 12/8 ERS will feel slightly stiffer due to the technology behind Eibach and still fine for daily driven cars (read first page please with ERS info). Unless you're looking to do some very, very spirited or track driving, go with 14/10 ERS option on Two.5's. (only reason I'm upgrading springs myself)

Again, I hope this helps.

sorry for not understanding but are you trying to say the 14/10 should be reserved for super spirited driving or track applications as opposed to 12/8 which is a tad less stiff but still stiff enough?

Another reason for me to purchase the 8k for the rear! Haha.

Thanks for clearing that up Ken!

Hey fellas, I'm back from my AZ trip and I got more inquiries about these TypeTwo.5 and standard kits more than ever before... wonder why?

Anywho, I got the ERS spring kit on my car already, much more race feel on harder cornering (less load feel) and a bit more firmness on the road while cruising. Overall, depending on the dampening setting you use, you may not ever notice much difference. I did mainly because I upgraded spring rate so, hard not to tell. All I need now is a cage and ready for some auto cross action!

Hit me up for those who are ready, I'm looking to pick up a few more sets this week again. Thanks again guys!

BTW: Looks like I may be running a vendor booth at the Wired on Honda Meet at K&N Headquarters this Sunday for the guys.
